Bilbo Baggins is a Hobbit who wants to be left alone in quiet comfort in his home in The Shire. But the Wizard Gandalf comes along with a band of Dwarves and draws Bilbo into their quest. Based on the book by J.R.R. Tolkien, in No Strings Marionette Company's adaptation of this stirring adventure fantasy, puppeteers adeptly animate marionettes, life-size body puppets and amazing puppet hybrids.
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.
