The prequel to the Lord of the Rings finds Bilbo Baggins and his friends leaving the comfort of their Hobbit village to go on a quest for the sacred Arkenstone, guarded by the dragon Smaug, and encountering on the way elves, goblins, trolls, the ring of invisibility and Gollum. It's a kids musical, so this can be all kinds of fun. Before this weekend's public performances, 9,000 county school kids will have seen it between March 12-16.
