Coming Up: "The Hobbit"

   One of the shows I neglected to add to our "Shows in July" list (now corrected) is one of my favorites:

   The Hobbit Alban Arts Center presents the play based on the novel by J.R.R. Tolkien. It'll be presented on July 21, 22, 28 and 29 at 8 p.m. and July 23 and 30 at 2 p.m.  Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for senior citizens and children 12 and under.

   It's a favorite because it was the first show I ever worked on when I produced it for First Stage back in 2000. But that was hardly the first production of the play - I saw a photo recently of a production from the early days of the Community Players.

   And no wonder - it's a fun show, loaded with Magic Rings, Swords, Dwarves, Goblins, a Wizard, Ogres and a Dragon! It's loads of fun!
