Readers' Theatre

Over the last fifty years, J. R. R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings has become the best known example of high fantasy literature, and the recent movies by Peter Jackson have attracted a new group of devotees. In celebration of more than fifty years of popularity, this readers’ theatre production is presenting a section of the story only touched upon in the films. From The Two Towers comes the tale of the reunion of long-separated members of the fellowship after Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli had chased Merry and Pippin across Rohan trying to rescue the two Hobbits from the clutches of the nasty orcs. Shortly after this joyful reunion, Gandalf and King Théoden confront the turncoat wizard, Saruman, and the devious wizard attempts to sway his adversaries by the power of his voice.
