My girlfriend graduated from Northern Illinois University a few years ago. She occasionally gets the Alumni newsletter. It came just today with a really interesting bit of information. A new faculty member, Professor Robert Schneider, is currently working on a stage adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel The Silmarillion. I can’t imagine what this production might look like. You may want to do some investigating.
Robert Schneider works for the School of Theatre and Dance. The following is the snail mail address:
Northern Illinois University
School of Theatre and Dance
1425 West Lincoln Highway
Dekalb, IL 60115
I really would love to see this production when it is finished. Please post any info if you get any!
