|CC walks into "Fun with Strings" at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater|
CC and I shared another magical mother-daughter outing last weekend, when we went to see a show at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater.
The oldest ongoing puppet theater in the U.S. marks its 54th (yes, 54th!) season with current show Bob Baker's Fun with Strings, which features those famous marionettes, as well as a special treat for the kiddos after the performance.
Bob Baker's theater is a true L.A. time capsule. The puppets are gorgeously made and adorned, and the songs that accompany the performances are nostalgic and fun.
|"Fun with Strings"|
There are a lot, though! In fact, Fun with Strings boasts a puppet cast of more than 100.
Some of CC's favorites included a singing baby seal and an itchy puppy. I loved the ice-skating eskimo.
