Nick of Time

Join us on a fun-filled adventure that is truly out of this world! On a special mission to explore a mysterious dark object nearing planet Earth, a rocket ship carrying Astronaut Nick Eastman and his hoverbot Glitch is attacked by a deep space alien.

Investigating, Nick is sucked into a time-warp and lands millions of years in Earth's dinosaur-riddled past. Snatched as a pterodactyl snack, Nick escapes only to be warped into a bizarre future where creatures have mutated to survive on a barely recognizable Earth.

This heart-pounding marionette extravaganza probes many unexplored and intriguing dimensions of puppetry. See if our time travelers decode the gravity of their situation and save the Earth in the Nick of Time.

Puppeteers Dan Baginski and Barbara Paulson have toured America together for over sixteen years.  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, the audience sees how the puppets are brought to life. These Vermont artisans lovingly hand craft the marionettes, props and scenery, whether for an original tale or an adaptation of a classic. 

Shows begin with an interactive song featuring audience members, and finish with demonstrations sparked by the audiences' curious questions.
