Chris/Kit writes: The Chilrden’s Theatre Company of Minneapolis has opened its production of The Hobbit. It runs April 26-June 19. CTC is one of the best children’s companies in the U.S. No reviews have appeared yet, but I would look for them in the Minneapolis Star Tribune and the St. Paul Pioneer Press, both of which have websites. The cast includes two superb local actors, Nathan Christopher and Richard Ooms in the roles of Bilbo and Gandalf.
