Bellingham Arts Academy for Youth presents The Hobbit on February 28 – March 1 and March 6-8 at the BAAY Theatre. It’s unusual for a modern work to become a classic so quickly, but Tolkien’s “ring” stories, which began with The Hobbit, are in this very special category. They stir the imagination of everyone they touch.

Bilbo, one of the most conservative of all Hobbits, is asked to leave his large, roomy, and very dry home in order to set off as chief robber in an attempt to recover an important treasure.
