Bring your children into a magical world of imagination as the historic Bob Baker Marionette Theater. They recently kicked off their 54th Season this past January with “Bob Baker’s Fun With Strings.” Children from all over the Southland have been enjoying the whimsical performances featuring over 100 marionettes.

Join Jack Frost, The Snow Queen, Chili Dog, The Balloon Clown, and over 100 of Bob Baker’s whimsical creations as they lead you on a wondrous journey with many a magical stop along the way.

With a day at the Monkey Circus, a journey through the Snow Queen’s Winter Wonderland, and even a visit to Paris (Puppet style of course,) “Bob Baker’s Fun With Strings!” is a show you will never forget. “Bob Baker’s Fun With Strings!” is an hour-long production. After the performance, guests are invited to visit with the Puppeteers and have refreshments in the famous Party Room.

The Bob Baker Marionette Theater in downtown Los Angeles is the oldest of its kind in the United States and has been entertaining children of all ages since its inception in 1960. At that time, Bob Baker and his business partner Alton Wood turned a scene shop in Los Angeles into the family entertainment landmark that it is today.

The theater has an inventory of nearly three thousand puppets with just about everything from robots that light up, to dancing frogs, to egg laying chickens. Baker’s marionettes have entertained nearly seven hundred thousand people since the theater’s opening.
