Marionette Nick is transported back in time, to the time of dinosaurs in the sci-fi puppet performance, “Nick of Time.”

Saturday, Nov. 28 at 11 a.m. — RANDOLPH — Join 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 hover-bot 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. See if our time travelers decode the gravity of their situation and save the Earth in the “Nick of Time” at Chandler Center for the Arts on Saturday, Nov. 28 at 11 a.m.
