The much anticipated third installment in "The Hobbit" series, "The Battle of the Five Armies," wraps up Bilbo Baggins' fine adventure with two-and-a-half hours of personal and political drama. Gandalf anchors the multifaceted conflicts-- fighting the enticement of gold and power, struggles with morality, the critical importance of friendship and one's word--in short, dedication to good over evil.

Child's play

In these reviews, we don't usually cover high school theatre. We do cover community theatre, including the Clayton Community Theatre. Some community theatres during summer vacation hold workshops or camps for young people, and they put on plays. We don't review those.
