Xoanon here, I’ve been keeping track of this stage play for some months. It’s great to finally see some promo work! If anyone involved with this play are reading, drop me a line!

I was in a local bookstore (The Stars Our Destination) when I picked up this pamphlet:
“Lifeline Theaters presents J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Two Towers Adapted by James Sie& Karen Tarjan Directed by Ned Mochel”
“Many years ago, the Dark Lord created a ring of incredible power, a ring to rule all other rings of power. And then the ring was lost…Frodo and Sam-lowly hobbits-must destroy the ring by casting it into the fire from whence it came. They must journey to the Dark Kingdom where evil Sauron, in the great tower, is supreme. Their guide is Gollum, deceitful and lust-filled slave to the corruption of the ring. The fantastic and horrible awaits them, from evil orcs to a gigantic spider named Shelob. Meanwhile, Frodo’s companions: Legolas, Gimli; Aragorn-and Gandalf from the council of Wizards-are caught in the strategy of the traitor Saruman, whose fortress must be overcome.
Don’t miss the mastery of Tolkien’s The Two Towers, Book 2 of the greatest epic fantasy ever written, brought to life on the Lifeline stage Order now…our production of The Fellowship of the Ring sold out”
The play is scheduled to run between January 22 and May 7, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 3:30pm. More information can be obtained at www.lifelinetheatre.com
I spoke to the store proprietors, who had seen the production of FoTR two years previously. They said it was a good adaptation, though it only provided a sampling of the book rather than the entire story.
