BRIEF HISTORY OF BOB BAKER

Since 1963 the Bob Baker Marionette Theater has been part of Angelino Community, and since then imagination and magic continue to live in Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Landmark #958. With over 200 performances a year, utilizing over 2000 handcrafted puppets, the organization caters to birthday parties, school groups, weddings, and community functions of all sorts. After 50 years of magic of having entertained over one million children of all ages, we are proud and excited for 50 more years of pulling the strings of family fun! Today,  our mission is to provide unique theatrical experiences; to educate, celebrate and rejuvenate puppetry and the allied arts. Furthermore, Bob Baker Marionette Theater is now a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and this will transition our current space into an institution that encapsulates the old and grows into something new.
