Bob Baker Marionette Theater

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Nothing says childhood entertainment quite like a puppet show, and the longest-running marionette theater in the nation delivers, big-time. The late Bob Baker learned about the art of puppetry at just eight years old, and was making and performing with marionettes since 1945. Though Bob has passed and the theater has moved from Westlake to Highland Park, its charms have stayed in tact: The kitsch factor is high here—original puppets (some worse for wear), cheesy old songs and sorbet-colored decor—but that only adds to the legendary vibe. Tykes truly delight in watching the marionettes come to life in the darkened theater space. A variety of holiday-themed performances are especially big hits around Halloween and Christmas.
