Poway : The Hobbit on Stage

The Montreal-based Theatre Sans Fil will bring its production of “The Hobbit” by J.R.R. Tolkien to the Poway Center for the Performing Arts at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Theatre Sans Fil debuted “The Hobbit” in 1979, launching an international career that led to sold-out performances at the 1984 Olympic Arts Festival in Los Angeles.

The company uses 48 puppets from 4- to 12-feet tall to tell the story of the Tolkien character, Bilbo Baggins. The puppetry is combined with an original musical score and dramatic lighting.
