As part of the 2018-2019 theme of a “Season of Elements,” the Paris Junior College Department of Drama opens “The Hobbit” on Thursday, Feb. 28, representing the element of Earth.
“This production is suitable for all ages,” said PJC drama instructor and play director Robyn Huizinga, “and we hope many families, young people, and the young at heart come to enjoy ‘The Hobbit’ together.”
In the play, Bilbo Baggins, one of the most conservative of all hobbits, is asked by Gandalf the Wandering Wizard to join a group of dwarves led by Thorin Oakenshield and leave his large, roomy and very dry home in the ground in order to set off as chief burglar in an attempt to recover an important treasure.
The play will begin at 7:30 p.m. each evening from Feb. 28 through March 2, and at 2:30 p.m. on March 3 on the Duane Allen Stage in PJC’s Ray E. Karrer Theater.
Tickets are $15 general admission, $10 for those under 18, $5 with the donation of a new children’s book for local charities, and free for those with current PJC ID.
Reservations can be made by e-mail at [email protected] Any unclaimed reservations will be released to patrons on the wait list beginning at 15 minutes prior to curtain.
