Following up on Wellinghall's post (the link to the Dorset Echo) -

TolkienLibrary.com gets a mention in the article, which is nice publicity for Beren. Congrats!

Also, I would like to drop a public note to Stephen Malton, the demo man who found the items - You'll probably feel more like you are "winning the lottery" when one of these items actually sells.

ARIEL Theatrical is putting on a musical performance of The Hobbit next month. The press release states "This will be the culmination of our most successful program here on Main Street, the three-week summer conservatory. More than 50 children and two dozen staff and crew members will recreate Tolkien's inspiring story..." They didn't provide any information on what script (if any) they are working from for this.


ARIEL Theatrical 2008 season, The Wilson Children's Theatre, 320 Main St., Salinas. Call 775-0976 for more information.

THE HOBBIT: Aug. 1, 2, 8 and 9
