Hollywood isn’t a place….It’s a puppet show!

The people and places of the City of Angels come to puppet life in Hooray LA! First performed in 1981 for the Los Angeles Bicentennial and recently revived by our puppeteers, fabrication workshop, staff, and community collaborators, the production features handcrafted marionettes inviting us into the history of LA, from the 1933 earthquake to development of the LA freeways to the mountains of Griffith Park where one lone mountain lion looks for love… And so much more!

A born & raised Angeleno, Hooray LA is Bob Baker’s masterpiece, an ode to his city and the last new show he ever created. To celebrate the Theater’s 60th birthday, step inside our version of Los Angeles with lovingly crafted, new additions that capture the heart of the city in 2024, including entirely new bear and trout marionettes in an ode to the LA River, as well as recently revised sets and puppets that more accurately represent the history of Los Angeles. 

Join us in saying happy 60th birthday to Bob Baker Marionette Theater! Join us for Hooray LA
