The New Dorp Public Library will host a performance of "The Hobbit" by the Traveling Lantern Theatre Company.

Two actors from the company will preform J.R.R. Tolkien's classic children's novel about a homebody hobbit who goes on a strange adventure where he meets elves, trolls, a wizard, a dragon and a strange creature called Gollum.

Admission is free and will be on a first come, first served basis. The play is suitable for children ages 4 and up.
