DM Young Artists Theatre: The Hobbit

Join Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf, Thorin Oakenshield and his band of merry dwarves to destroy Smaug, the evil dragon! Along the journey, audiences will encounter trolls, goblins, elves and the riddling Gollum. J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved classic comes to life with magic, puppets, epic sword fights and all the spectacle you’d expect from Middle Earth.

The Hobbit is directed by guest directors Kathy Pingel and Ron Ziegler with scenic design by Tim Wisgerhof, costume design by Nicholas Amundson, light design by Alex Snodgrass, sound design by Mark Toebben, fight direction by Susie Irish and stage managed by Alice Robertson. The cast of 29 includes a blend of adults and students from all across Central Iowa.


This show runs 90 minutes with an intermission. This is a great show to bring your children and let them experience theater!
