Starstruck Youth Theatre presents J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit,” which was adapted for stage by Maryland Taylor.

Children and adults will enjoy this adventure play where Bilbo first meets Gandalf and discovers the ring as they travel through Middle Earth.

Bilbo (Daniel Sarrao), and Gandalf (Morgan Ferry), assist Thorin (Vicoria Hughes), to recover her stolen treasure from Smaug the Dragon.

Along their journey they encounter Tap Dancing Trolls, Hip-Hop Goblins, Balletic Fairies and Dancing Elves. Chance Butler performs both as actor and Goblin Army Hip- Hop Dancer.

The play challenges actors Ali Berl and Charlie Hermann. Each has multiple roles to perform as the action progresses.

“The Hobbit” is directed and choreographed by Melissa Balice. Set and lighting design are by Ross Mason. Los Alamos County Recreation Services facilitates the production and offers theatre and tap classes through its department.

There are two showings of “The Hobbit” at Duane A. Smith Auditorium; 7 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Saturday.

Tickets are available at the box office and advance purchase through cast members; adults $5 children / seniors $3. Call 661-2661 for further information.
