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. Two years in the making, this adaptation of the Hobbit is by far No Strings Marionette Company’s most ambitious production to date. The puppets, built in the No Strings studio, range in style from marionettes to body beings to interactive scenic pieces. All honor the tradition of puppets performing great works of history’s finest creative artists and writers.
No Strings Marionette Company, based in Randolph, Vermont, tours its shows nationally! Puppeteers Dan Baginski and Barbara Paulson have performed for over twelve years, dazzling children and adults with their marionette magic. The performances are a seamless blend of music, movement and masterful marionette manipulation. You can watch how the puppets are brought to life, since the puppeteers do not hide themselves from the audience.
