October 5th-6th, Robert E. Howard’s Conan, featuring: Conan the Barbarian and Conan the Destroyer, Official Motion Picture Soundtracks

Shadows in Zamboula is one of the original stories by Robert E. Howard about Conan the Cimmerian. Its original title was The Man-Eaters of Zamboula.

The story takes place over the course of a night in the desert city of Zamboula, with political intrigue amidst streets filled with roaming cannibals. This story also introduced a fearsome strangler named Baal-Pteor, who is one of the few humans in the Conan stories to be a physical challenge for the main character himself.

Queen of the Black Coast is one of the original short stories about Conan the Cimmerian, written by American author Robert E. Howard and first published in Weird Tales magazine on May, 1934. It’s set in the pseudo-historical Hyborian Age and concerns Conan becoming a notorious pirate and plundering the coastal villages of Kush alongside Bêlit, a head-strong femme fatale.

The Lord of the Rings is the most prominent of several theatre adaptations of J. R. R. Tolkien’s epic high fantasy novel of the same name, with music by A. R. Rahman, Christopher Nightingale and the band Värttinä, and book and lyrics by Matthew Warchus and Shaun McKenna.

Fellowship! is a musical parody stage play based on The Fellowship of the Ring (the first volume of J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings) and Peter Jackson’s 2001 film adaptation of it. The play follows the major events of Tolkien’s story. It re-imagines Bilbo Baggins as an aged Jewish comedian, the Balrog as a sleep-deprived diva, the battle on Weathertop as a West Side Story-style gang fight, and Rivendell as a Scientologist stronghold.

We’ll be playing the entire album soundtrack from the BBC audio drama of The Lord of the Rings Concert by composer Stephen Oliver.

The Adventures of Tom Bombadil is part of a 1992 radio series of Tales from the Perilous Realm, written by J.R.R. Tolkien and adapted by Brian Sibley, produced by John Taylor and originally aired on BBC Radio
