VOTE NOW to help fund “The Bob Baker Department of Historic Sustainability!"

Through this project, the Bob Baker Marionette Theater will help historic cultural organizations that are struggling with issues of rising rent, gentrification, archive and collection management, and fundraising. A vote for our project is a vote for Los Angeles history and cultural preservation! 


We are proud to announce our NEW HOME IN HIGHLAND PARK!

The historic Bob Baker Marionette Theater will bring its 3000 puppets, endless ice cream, boundless imagination, and love for its Los Angeles community to its new location at 4949 York Boulevard, with shows scheduled to begin in early Summer. At the heart of the Bob Baker Marionette Theater is a child’s first theatrical experience, which we plan to share and continue for generations in Highland Park. But that’s not the only big change for the theater.

We are now a 501c3 non-profit organization.

With this new Theater, and our non-profit status, Bob Baker Marionette Theater is in a better position than ever to carry out its mission–
to educate kids of all ages across Los Angeles and beyond, to celebrate imagination and creativity, and to rejuvenate appreciation for handcrafted puppetry and the allied arts. There’s no better time to show your support by helping Bob Baker Marionette Theater take on this exciting new home and new phase with a tax-free donation.
