There is nothing quite like a Bob baker birthday…

There are a few ways you can celebrate with the Bob Baker Marionettes!


  • During a regular show, you can purchase a “Birthday Shout Out” for just $10 where we call the honoree on stage, a puppet comes out to give them a birthday gift and crown, and the whole audience is led into the Happy Birthday song to mark the special occasion.


  • Full Buyout! We include an hour long puppet show, birthday shoutout, balloons, and cake! You are welcome to bring additional food and drinks if desired.


  • We can come to you! Learn more about our 1 man and 2 man show options at this webpage.



    "Lovely time for just yourself or the whole family. The group is now at the York Theatre but it has lost none of its magic. This place is the place to bring your kids or young family members to let their imagination bring to life these Marionettes. I remember them from my childhood and Yes there is ice cream at the end. Check out the different shows they offer and bring your loved ones."---Adolfo H.

    "Love the kid friendly space. Felt super welcomed by the staff; you can tell they love children. Enjoyed their halloween spooktacular show. When the glow in the dark puppets came out, it reminded me of the movie "COCO" and its characters."---Lizette M.
