Calling all members!

It is time to celebrate the dawning of a new board, and what better place to feel the puppet magic than at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater.

Rumor has it the new theater was actually built on top of a defunct radio telescope, and it’s been picking up some funny signals from deep-puppet-space. Join us in person at the theater on York Blvd* or online via** as we attempt to make contact with distant puppet planets.

Featuring performances by Bob Baker Marionette Theater, Ross Hayduk, and Eli Presser, as well as a familiar virtual host: Michael Paul and musical stylings by Michael D Mortilla.

Please RSVP for in person attendance
