The Hobbit | Week of Aug 09 - 14

Outdoor Theatre
Keppoch Mountain
Sunday, Aug 14, 2022 at 6:15 PM (AT)


Welcome to Middle-earth, where there is less noise and more green. A wee Hobbit leads a quiet, respectable life until Bilbo Baggins is spurred into adventure by the great wizard Gandalf. Bilbo leaves the comforts of home for a treacherous journey with thirteen Dwarves, and discovers courage, strength, and keen burglaring skills. They battle trolls, spiders, and the giant dragon Smaug, in this extraordinary tale of how a small, seemingly insignificant Hobbit can change the world.

The Hobbit, or there and back again,
is based on the timeless classic by J.R.R. Tolkien, and is the perfect outdoor experience to enjoy with friends and family. Join us at Keppoch Mountain this summer for an adventure like none other!
