Summer Puppetry Festival: The Circus

Thursday, June 24, 2021

Our annual Puppetry Festival kicks off with the world-famous Bob Baker Marionettes, presenting a brilliant and beautiful musical extravaganza.

Bob Baker Marionette Theater presents a circus like no other! 

The marionette Ringmaster is proud to bring you the greatest puppet show, unearthed from the Bob Baker archives, featuring a vast array of colorful and wonderful creations not seen for decades! 

This is a not-to-be missed musical variety puppet spectacular!

About Bob Baker Marionette Theater
The Bob Baker Marionette Theater was founded in 1963, and its denizens have appeared in many motion pictures and television shows. They pioneered a form of "theater in the round" which allows the puppeteers to perform their art in full view of everyone. Audiences are able to enjoy the antics and intricacies of the skilled and beautifully-executed marionettes in an intimate form, all of which has become a timeless and culturally-celebrated living theater for all ages. 

Named an official Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument in 2009, the theater has served over one million children. As a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization, the mission of Bob Baker Marionette Theater is to educate, celebrate, and rejuvenate puppetry and the allied arts.

This free event received partial funding support from the Friends of the Menlo Park Library.
