CHICAGO — You don't need hairy Hobbit feet or a fluency in Elvish to travel to Middle Earth — at least in this "reality."

A new reality TV show called "The Quest," described as "if 'Amazing Race' took place in Middle Earth," will host a "meet and greet" for potential cast members Thursday in Chicago.

Sci-fi fans with a thirst for adventure can attend the event with casting director Kristin Malley from 8 to 10 p.m. Thursday at Emporium Arcade Bar, 1366 N. Milwaukee Ave.

"The Quest" comes from the creators of "The Amazing Race" and one of the executive producers of "The Lord of the Rings," film trilogy, Malley said.

An ideal contestant would be "competitive, [with a] good personality, high energy, who also has a flair for the fantasy and sci-fi world," Malley said.

Those interested can RSVP to questcastingchicago@gmail.com with their name, age, occupation, phone number, email address, a recent photo and "why they would be great for a show like this," Malley said.
