An Amazing Brandy Badgers Adventure! (ABBA)

As usual, we’ll just have to go try find those singing spring badgers in the Shire forests, who greet the spring with song. As usual, we’ll probably be disappointed. So the Brandy Badgers have a backup musical for yer!

Date: Sunday April 24

Time: 7:30PM ((UK time / 2:30PM servertime))

Location: Overhill, village center

The musical is an Amazing Brandy Badgers Adventure (ABBA), telling the tale of … two explorers competing to catch the biggest catfish in a recently-discovered pond in a recently-discovered area of the recently-discovered Yondershire. However, both might need the help of some mystical badgers to find the way there. Cue conflict, catfish and cutting-edge music! Wonderful wacky wonders and hilarious hi-jinks may or may not ensue!

Welcome to a tale of high drama, low comedy, and soft berries! And lots of grand music. Join us in Overhill on Sunday April 24!

This is a hobbit-themed tale, although travellers from out of bounds who have good reason to be into hobbit music and badger mythology are of course welcome along! Just don’t block the view of the locals!

The event will be a musical, based around the real-life songs of ABBA. However, the story and song lyrics will all be somewhat LOTRO lore relevant (and performed in the /say channel). The musical will be performed by The Brandy Badgers, an in-house music collective of the Grand Order of the Lost Mathom.
