Strings Attached

Barbara Paulson and Dan Baginski, founders of the Randolph-based No Strings Marionette Company, do move their puppets via threads - they're just not shy about showing it. Their modus operandi entails letting the audience watch them animate their handcrafted figurines during performances - so the puppets get jerked around, but not the spectators. No Strings stages an original, optimistic adaptation of "Jack and the Beanstalk" that encourages kids' curiosity. "All of the action is driven by the cow's appetite," says Paulson. And the giant? "He stays up in the clouds."

No Strings Marionette Company, St. Johnsbury School, 4-4:45 p.m. &5-5:45 p.m. http://www.nostringsvt.com
