The Bob Baker Marionette Theater was established in 1963, and has carried on the ancient tradition of puppetry magic for over half-a-century. The Bob Baker Marionettes, in addition to their live performances, have appeared in many motion pictures and on frequent television shows. They have pioneered an old form of "theater in the round" which allows the puppeteers to perform their wizardry in full view of everyone. The 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.
... All of this and ice cream, too!

Ticket price $10, pay when you arrive
