The Friends of Westwood Library is thrilled to present a free children’s program of the world famous Bob Baker Marionette Theater at the Westwood Branch Public Library on Saturday, November 7th, 11:00 a.m.
This free children’s program is sponsored by the Friends in honor of the Westwood Branch Library’s 10th Anniversary Celebration.
The Bob Baker Marionette Theater will perform their roadshow musical revue “Traveling Jamboree,” featuring the extraordinary marionettes that have enchanted Los Angeles audiences for more than 50 years.
Among the delightful characters that may appear in this marionette variety show are: dancing cats, singing chickens, flapper dodos, a juggler, tap dancing frogs, and more. Children sit in a circle so the puppets can come right out in the audience and interact.
Following the show, the Bob Baker puppeteers will hold a Q&A with the children, showing off the beautiful and historic marionettes, explaining how they make their hand-crafted string puppets, and demonstrating how they operate them.
After the program, the children will enjoy complimentary refreshments, hosted by the Friends of Westwood Library.
