The flashiest cast member in Thea^tre Sans Fil's puppet production of "The Hobbit" is a dragon that's 13 feet tall, stretches 26 feet from his snout to the tip of his tail and has a costume of fiberglass, aluminum, wood and colorfully painted fabric. But an effective dragon needs more than good looks. He's gotta have heart. And that, says Thea^tre Sans Fil founder Andre Viens, is where the humans come in.
