Obscura Day 2015: Backstage at Bob Baker Marionette Theater

Join us for an unusual marionette experience complete with Mama & Papa Goat, tap dancing Frogs, and hundreds of other friends from the farm!

One of the longest running puppet theaters in the country, The Bob Baker Marionette Theater has been delighting, charming, and amazing kids of all ages with its nearly 3,000 marionettes for over 40 years.

With the sale of the building in 2012, this historic theater began a month-to-month lease in March 2015. Take advantage of this opportunity to experience the magic and support the theater on Obscura Day. This event includes an exclusive performance of Something to Crow About and a behind the scenes tour of the historic theater including an opportunity to get up-close and personal with the puppets! 

After the show, join us around the corner at Vista Hermosa Park for a free Obscura Day celebration
