NICK OF TIME
No Strings Marionette Company

Doctorow Center for the Arts
7971 Main Street, Village of Hunter

Join us on a fun-filled 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 is attacked by 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. See if our time travelers decode the gravity of their situation and save the Earth in the Nick of Time.

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.

The very funny French farce Boeing Boeing was written by French playwright Marc Camoletti in 1960. The English version of the play was first staged in London at the Apollo Theatre in 1962 and ran for a total of seven years. The play was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the most performed French play throughout the world. The 2008 Broadway production won the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play.

Boeing Boeing is set in the swinging 1960s, and centers on American bachelor Bernard, who has a flat in Paris and three international stewardess (American, Italian and German) who are all engaged to him without knowing about each other. Bernard's careful scheduling goes awry when complications such as weather and a new, speedier Boeing jet disrupt his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in the city simultaneously, and catastrophe looms.

Produced by the Phoenicia Playhouse, the cast includes David Smilow, Wil Anderson, Daniela Goldberg, Caitlin Connelly, Christa Trinler, and Geneva Turner. Boeing Boeing is directed by Michael Koegel.

"A gorgeous pairing ... the two play with such serene authority that the listener is almost afraid to take a breath ... quietly compelling and deeply felt music."
—All About Jazz

Two celebrated instrumentalists ruminate on their common roots and shared love of traditional Balkan and classical music with original works and arrangements of Erik Satie, Manuel de Falla, and the mournful music of sevdah—sometimes called 'Bosnian blues', and music from Slovenian composer, Davorin Jenko.

One of the world's finest concert accordionists, Bosnian-born Merima Ključo is a frequent guest soloist with orchestras like the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and Holland Symphonia, and has worked with internationally renowned artists and ensembles such as Theodore Bikel, MusikFabrik and the Schönberg Ensemble.

An acclaimed guitarist of Bosnian, Serbian and Croatian origins, Miroslav Tadić has performed and recorded with luminaries such as Terry Riley, Plácido Domingo, Wadada Leo Smith, the London Symphony Orchestra and the Philharmonic Orchestra of Monte-Carlo.

This virtuosic pair shares the fruits of their unique musical partnership, offering a singular mix of joy, yearning and aching beauty.
