The Hobbit

University Theatre, CSU, Ft Collins CO 

Directed by Rob Lauer

2015 

A&E blog: In a theater above the ground lived a hobbit. Not a shabby, filthy, cheap theater, filled with old curtains and a smell of decay, nor yet a bland, bare, boring theater with terrible seats and acoustics. It was a CSU theater, and that means spectacle.

To say the stage is dressed up for the spring production of “The Hobbit” would be an understatement. A complete transformation would be the most accurate description. It appears that seats have been placed into Middle Earth itself rather than Middle Earth hastily shoved into a theater.

Jagged grey rocks litter front stage, a giant tree from Mirkwood reaches almost through the entire auditorium and a certain fire drake from the north peeks from backstage. This fantasy realm recreated in loving fashion will be available to everyone starting April 23. - Morgan Smith

Director's quote: “The design work is really magnificent.  You really would have to go to every well-known regional theater or maybe even Broadway to see production values this high.” - Rob Lauer
