No Strings Marionette Company
|Bully! For the 3 Big Pigs
Sat., April 26th, 11:30 am
|Nick of Time
Sat., April 26th, 1:30 pm
In No Strings Marionette Company's version of the classic tale a prolific painter, a sensational singer, and an industrious architect are faced with the non-stop taunting of a puffed-up bully. As each pig deals with the pushy tactics of the Big Bad Wolf, Pablo Pigcasso, Beverly Swills and I.M. Pig each achieve a more successful level of effectively dealing with bullying behavior.
A cast of hand crafted marionettes romp through an artist's studio, an opera stage, and the problem solving mind of a builder of buildings, providing a feast for the eyes, ears and imagination.
||Nick of Time is an outrageous 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 attracts 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, where our one of a kind hand crafted marionettes span a wide range of size, style and time periods. See if our time travelers decode the gravity of their situation and save the Earth in the Nick of Time.|
