FEATURING Michael Jarmus as wandering wizard Gandalf the Gray (and Smaug the Golden); Jeff Maschi as dwarf doyen Thorin Oakenshield, son of Thrain and proud leader of the mission to reclaim Lonely Mountain; Laurence Mintz, as the marvelously mucculent Gollum (and assorted other characters); and starring Jane Hardy as furry-footed filcher Bilbo Baggins.
WITH Mead AND a Middle-Earth inspired menu (TBA), courtesy of our brand new caterer, cuisinier extraordinaire, Jon Edge.
PLUS a fully armored, outdoor swordfight (compliments of the celebrated RenFaire fight troupe, The Clang Addicts) AND a fully costumed, wandering wizard (roaming the room, performing astonishing up-close magic as you sup).
