The Enterprise — Michael Koff

With pretend strings intertwined two members of the puppet dancers collapse during a performance of Pinocchio by the Classic Theater Guild during its eighth annual Helderberg Theater Festival at Indian Ladder Farms in New Scotland.

The free Helderberg Theater Festival goes through July 27 and includes performances of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, directed by Tony Pallone, and Pinocchio, directed by three students at Voorheesville’s high school — Stefanie DeFronzo, Jaynie Parmenter, and Noah Robinson — mentored by Steve Suriano.
