On February 14th, the week of what would have been Bob Baker's 91st birthday, the Bob Baker Marionette Theater held three special performances to honor and share some of the late Baker's favorite pieces and puppets on Bob Baker Day. The theater, still in operation after 52 years, is the longest running puppet theater in America. All of the marionettes, puppets, props and costumes for the theater are produced in the on-site shop. Tickets to their upcoming shows are available at All photos by Star Foreman.
