About the show

Peoples Improv Theater presents a spoof of/tribute to 'The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.' More…

Three actors and a foley artist band together (in fellowship) to bring you another LIVE shot-for-shot parody of the first chapter in the most epic fantasy trilogy of all time! Part spoof, part tribute, this theatrical version is physical, imaginative, and silly, using only sparse costumes and rudimentary props to recreate iconic moments from the film. Created by the same funny folks who brought you 'Hold Onto Your Butts' and the 'Harry Potter' parody show 'Puffs.'

Clever, Hilarious, Quirky, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You know the "Rings" movies.You enjoy parody.You want quality improv:this wasn't thrown together quickly or done just to be silly.

Don't see it if You don't know or hate the "Rings" movies. You don't like parody. You don't want comedy.

Clever, Entertaining, Hilarious

See it if you're an improv & LotR fan wanting to see your favorite characters lovingly mocked. The actors were great & fully committed to the comedy.

Don't see it if you're only a mild LotR fan. Also avoid if you're looking for large production value & a fancy night out.

"Three actors recreate with great hilarity and intimate reverence the story of Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin…Abeel, Schaefer and Zambrano, along with Busbee, in the style of the golden age of radio, refreshingly deliver 'Lord of the Rings' with extraordinary deference to the art of great storytell...

"From the people who brought you 'Hold On To Your Butts' comes 'Fly, You Fools!,' a shot-for-shot parody of 'The Lord of the Rings.' It's so good, It's three actors and one foley artist. It's everything you love about the 'Lord of the Rings.'"
