    "You're a very fine person, Mr. Baggins, and I'm quite fond of you. But you are really just a little fellow, in a wide world after all" - Gandalf

    *hugs Achy's legs and smiles*

    Thank you kindly Acky *cheers* indeed there is a lot of work that goes behind an event like this one, This year we hope for a few surprises too . Work in under way on a brand new trailer too, so stay tuned for more news in the following weeks/months. As a little 'teaser' for now just one of a series of storyboards for the trailer and the words of one of the songs we will performed called The Thrush Song that tells the story of how Bard The Bowman kills the dragon Smaug and saves Lake Town...


    There And Back Again Story Board 1 by Once Upon A Hobbit, on Flickr


    The End Of The Golden by Once Upon A Hobbit, on Flickr

    On the shores of the big lake a town there lay
    Men and women there live, their children do play
    On the waters the moon shone ever so clear
    At the tall Lonely Mountain they looked up in fear
    At the tall Lonely Mountain they looked up in fear

    "Smaug the dragon is coming, cut the bridges! To arms!"
    Warning trumpets did sound and raised the alarm.
    Fire leaped from the dragon's jaws, caused the people to flee
    "To arms, men!" Bard the Bowman said as the dragon he sees

    Men were jumping in the water, swimming on to the shore
    Bard the Bowman did not move, shooting arrows galore
    His companions were leaving, his last arrow he drew
    As the small little thrush on his shoulder flew
    As the small little thrush on his shoulder flew

    Little bird gently whispered in Bard's ear so soon
    "Aim for dragon's left breast in the light of the moon!"
    Arrow, black arrow, I saved you to last..."
    "Never you failed me, go now and fast!"

    The great bow twanged, black arrow sped through the night
    Smaug the golden was hit, turned and crashed out of sight
    White hot steam leaped up from waters with a hiss sound
    Then silence returned, fires burning but safe was Lake Town

    Nevermore dragon will rest on the gold in the halls
    Nevermore men will fear the mountain so tall
    Little bird and Black Arrow flew in to the night
    Smaug the Golden now dead forevermore out of sight

    Could I ask which server this will be performed on? I see you play on laurelin, knowing in advance will give us all a chance to create a nice hobbit to come along and watch (especially for us non laurelin folks)

    Edit: attack if the stupid obviously given the forum.... In fairness it was probably because I came here via dev tracker. Have you considered advertising to other server folks so we could do the above and join in the fun?

    Thank Achy *hugs*, yes , I will add the event there soon ™

    So work is under way , including filming, writing, doodling, yodeling , eating lots of muffins etc etc. Our little brave hobbit finds himself having 13 dwarves and a wizard for dinner and he does not look very pleased with the prospect of the washing up and some strange adventure to find a treasure stolen by a dragon..

    Thank you kindly Phede, was very fun to make we are working on a second trailer now and a few other things in preparation for the event. I am hoping to be able to announce the final cast by the middle of August.

    The stage this year will be at Bag End, in the gardens for we thought the background there looks stunning

    More updates soon

    I'm afraid that according to this "Musical and Burrowwarming cancelled", that "There and Back Again" has been cancelled. It is not all bad news though, Miss Nannie and Miss Lina have organised this "A Harvest-Birthday Celebration!" in its stead, at 7:30 pm BST (2:30 ST) on 22nd September at the Appledores.

    Unhappy

    It is with utmost regret that I have to announce THERE AND BACK AGAIN 2013 has been cancelled.

    After having invested many months of effort in planning this event for all of you, I am saddened to say that I have decided to cancel it following some unforeseen real life issues that require my full attention at the present time.

    I would like to thank my friends for all their support and help in the preparation of THERE AND BACK AGAIN and the making of the trailers , and extend my sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.

    With the coming of Bilbo's Birthday, and anniversary of his mysterious dissappearence, the little village of Hobbiton has been plagued by all sorts of unsavory tall folk poking and prying into Hobbit affairs. Most of us Hobbits have not discussed matters with tall folk but a few have been spreading all sorts of rumours and tales.

    Bag-End has become the focus of much gossip from Lobilia Sackville-Baggins and with all the comings and goings I am sure it would have been difficult to perform what looked to be a magnificent performance.


    Such a shame that this had to be canceled. I hope all your real life issues are resolved.
