The Hobbit backdrop and prop

The Hobbit backdrops were simple. A cave backdrop was created and the Wizard of Oz trees backdrop was reused. Added to that was a dragon's head carved out of foam, with glowing eyes!

Hobbit Cave and Dragon head: The 40'w x 15'h Hobbit backdrop was fun to paint. Tree backdrops from Wizard of Oz were also used in this play. Specially constructed for the Hobbit sets was this dragon head carved out of foam. The red eyes actually lit up on cue!
Hobbit forest backdrop: Closed Door Entertainment reused the Wizard of Oz trees backdrop for use in The Hobbit play. Seen here in a performance with other props.
