No Strings Marionette Co. Presents The Hobbit
November 25 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Engage your senses inside the enchanting world of marionettes. Vermont puppeteers Barbara Paulson and Dan Baginski have created puppets and shows for touring for over two decades. Their traveling stage transforms venues into an intimate theater, where the seamless blend of movement, music, and masterful manipulation captivates audiences of all ages. On Saturday, November 25 at 2pm, the duo presents a family-friendly matinee of ‘The Hobbit’, a beloved tale of a grand adventure from a smaller perspective.
Bilbo Baggins is a Hobbit who wants to be left alone, in quiet comfort, in his home in The Shire. But one faithful night, the Wizard Gandalf comes along with a band of Dwarves and draws Bilbo into their quest. Reluctantly, the hobbit agrees, but what awaits him on this perilous journey? 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.
