Chicago Loot Drop will be teaming up with The Nerdologues for a night that will be one part sketch comedy and one part sing-a-long to the 1977 Rankin-Bass animated version of The Hobbit. Come join us for what is sure to be a night of great mirth, singing the songs of Middle Earth!
Sketch Show Details: Imagine a world where the Cubs keep doing better and better. With their success, the darkness of Wrigleyville spreads, raising the drink prices higher and higher at every bar in the city. The Nerdologues, finding themselves caught up in this blue-and-red-tinted evil, journey forth as any true adventuring party would - to find cheaper drinks, the source of the madness, and ultimately ... themselves. After all, the greatest adventure is the one that lies ahead or something.
Sing-a-Long Details: That's right, we said it. Sing-a-long! Join us as we go down, down to Goblin-town and start roll-roll-rolling down the hole! We think that 1977 Rankin-Bass animated version of The Hobbit was one of the best adaptations of Tolkien's classic verse to song. With such classics as "The Greatest Adventure" and "Fifteen Birds in Five Fir Trees", and the epic vocal talents of Glenn Yarborough and Thurl Ravenscroft, it's one of the soundtracks we remember most fondly from our childhood. So let's together raise our classes and crack the plates, because that's what Bilbo Baggins hates!
