Treasure Hunt

Catskill Mountain Foundation presents Treasure Hunt, a virtual puppet show performed and filmed by No Strings Marionette Company, with puppeteers Dan Baginski and Barbara Paulson. Treasure Hunt will be available on YouTube for 24 hours starting at 2 PM on Saturday, November 21, 2020.


The Story of Treasure Hunt 

All aboard this swashbuckling hunt for treasure, where Jim is lured out to sea in search of adventure and excitement. Little does he realize the unusual experience about to unfold. Jim sets sail aboard the Golden Nugget with Captain Timbershin. A wild ocean storm throws Jim overboard, where his underwater odyssey begins.

With an enchanted kiss from Jewel, a young mermaid,  Jim is able to breathe underwater.

In no time, this dry-lander is faced with peculiar difficulties. These include a giant clam, a fish that swallows him whole, an electric eel and an angry octopus guarding his treasure. Jewel and Jim encounter King Neptune and discover that his domain, and all its underwater inhabitants are threatened by pollution poured into the water from above.  Jim must find what is lost and convince his people to take better care of their lakes and oceans so that creatures above and below the water can live in harmony. 

Catskill Mountain Foundation wishes to thank the following funders who have made this event possible:  ONC BOCES Creating Rural Opportunities Partnership (CROP), The A. Lindsay and Olive B. O'Connor Foundation, The Jarvis and Constance Doctorow Family Foundation, and with public funds from the Greene County Legislature through the Greene County Initiative Program administered in Greene County by the Greene County Council on the Arts dba CREATE.
