Mamas, I won’t assume your boys will be the only ones to appreciate this giveaway (I’ve got a girl who loves this kind of fantasy story), so I’ll say this is the perfect show for your 10-and-up kiddos. Today we’re giving away four tickets so the whole family can go see The Hobbit on Saturday, Feb. 27, at 7 p.m.!

Or heck, your husband could take himself and three of your son’s best friends with these tickets!

About the show: For ages 10 & up, this unprecedented stage adaptation of the prequel to the classic literary trilogy “The Lord of the Rings” is something every true Tolkien fan should experience. Utilizing an ancient art of Japanese theater called Bunraku – which combines live-action performers with intricately designed life-size puppets – the award-winning Canadian company Théâtre Sans Fil brings to life Tolkien’s fantastical world of orcs, trolls, wizards and, yes, Hobbits.

Bonus: Tickets for this show are as low as $9.50, when you use a special code. To take advantage of this offer, visit and log in using promo code BILBO.

Also, Théâtre Sans Fil is making this presentation of The Hobbit an even more memorable affair by inviting audience members to come on stage after the performance. Theatergoers are allowed to see firsthand the inner workings of this complex production, making for a wholly exclusive interactive theater experience.

Show times are 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 27! Good luck in the drawing!



  1. I loved all of Tolkien and so did my daughters. I wouldn’t waste a ticket on my husgband and son! Well, maybe one ticket. Thanks for the opportunity!

  2. Our family would love to see this show. My husband is a big Tolkien fan. My daughter is just starting to get interested in fantasy story. And I love doing things as a family.

  3. HUGE Tolkien fans, and I think my husband would cry tears of joy if I got to surprise him with these tickets … kids would love it, too! 🙂

  4. I have been reading “the Hobbit” to my boys at night for awhile now. They are so excited about getting to actually see it now.

  5. I would love to surprise my husband and son with the tickets. My 8 year old is currently reading “The Hobbit”.

  6. I am entering to win this so I can “pay it forward”. I work with many special needs children who would love this night out! If I won, I would have a drawing at my office. Many of my families do not have access to email or internet and are often not aware of the ‘arts’ available in our area. I think this would be a great gift and a neat way for them to spend time together.

  7. I was just looking at the Walton Arts Center site the other day wishing I could take my family to this! They would love it!

  8. My husband and I both loved The Hobbit as kids and can’t wait to read it to our own children. It would be great to see the show together.

  9. I actually became familiar with The Hobbit because my son’s father would read it to me at night. After a while, we would take turns reading and I fell in love with the story! My son is now a big fan. It would be a HUGE treat for us to be able to see the show together!
