Hate that it took so long for us to actually go see a show. Now, we are big fans. After seeing the Nutcracker in Pasadena and a revival of the original show at their new home theater, we cannot wait..... more »
Excellent shows for little kids and marionette fans! The best seats for kids are on the floor at the edge of the show area. A true piece of LA history. Glad it's been going strong for 55+ years. The theater will be moving from its original location soon. We'll follow them when they do.
This is a fun puppet show. They really involve the kids. The puppeteers are good at their craft. The have over a thousand marionettes. The have Halloween and holiday shows. I think they will be moving from this location soon. That's good because the parking is a bit sketchy.
