When Puppets Are Your Only Friends


Past Event

Location Info:

Bob Baker Marionette Theater
1345 W. First St.
Los Angeles, CA  90026
In the latest episode of Molly Fite and Jared Ramirez's ongoing variety series When Puppets Are Your Only Friends, the duo re-creates the spirit of the 1975 film Escape to Witch Mountain. Several of the movie's most charismatic, if slightly wooden, performers — the actual puppets created by Bob Baker — will be on hand to relive the magic of the memorable scene in which a group of colorful dolls, clowns, a purple elephant and other marionettes come to life in a child's bedroom. Although Baker died in 2014, the puppeteer's beloved creations continue to enchant audiences in his namesake theater.
