What would you do if a Wandering Wizard, accompanied by a band of Dwarves, drew you into a quest for treasure where you’d be certain to face grave dangers, both known and mysterious? Discover hobbit Bilbo Baggins’ response to this dilemma in No Strings Marionette Company’s new production. This fantasy adventure story, first published in 1937 by British author J.R.R. Tolkien, introduces the Middle Earth characters that later take part in The Lord of The Rings Trilogy.
Puppeteers Dan Baginski and Barbara Paulson have toured America together for over sixteen years. These Vermont artisans lovingly hand craft the marionettes, props and scenery. Their traveling stage transforms any space into an intimate theater, where the seamless blend of movement, music and masterful manipulation captivates young and old alike.
With puppeteers in full view, you’ll see how the puppets are brought to life, whether for an original tale or an adaptation of a classic.
Engage your senses inside the enchanting world of marionettes.
