Imagine yourself in a medieval world full of mystery, magic and adventure. Imagine a world full of monsters, demons, and danger, as well as a world full of friends, fairies, and helpful wizards. In doing so you have just taken your first step into the magical world that surrounds such epic works as J.R.R. Tolkien's trilogy, Arthurian legends, and Beowulf. In Rings, Kings, and Things, we explore the epic fantasy tales of great literature, from today's bestsellers to the Arthurian legends. The Standard Deviants' signature style is the perfect introduction to the riveting world of fantasy and wizardry. This family-friendly program is guaranteed to include swooshing swords, brave heroes fighting fire-breathing dragons, and some of the vilest, most sinister monsters to ever emerge from the human imagination, all the while maintaining an educational but irreverent manner that will compel all viewers. Rings, Kings, and Things introduces viewers to The Lord of the Rings, with a brief biographical sketch of the author, a Cut-Out Theatre presentation of the plot, and a quick section called "What the heck is a Hobbit?" Then we dive headfirst into the adventure, magic and mayhem, exploring the coolest and choicest characters, and situations of The Lord of the Rings, like Frodo's amazing quest, the rings, mythical creatures (elves, dwarves, hobbits), monsters (Gollum, Balrog, and orcs), and evil villains. A special section of the show is devoted to wizards, witches, spells and magic. Each of these explorations allow us to branch off from LOTR, and look at other sources, like Beowulf, The Odyssey, Arthurian legends, and Norse mythology.
