About Randal Metz
Puppet Company founder Randal Metz has been producing imaginative family entertainment for close to 50 years. In addition to holding a B.A. Degree in Theater and Children’s Theater from San Francisco State University, Metz says he has been trained “by The Muppets, Lewis Mahlmann, Bob Baker and have worked for Disneyland and circuses.”  For over 20 years, Metz has been the Puppet Theater Director at Children’s Fairyland in Oakland, but he’s been with the popular family park for much longer than that; last year, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf declared August 27, 2016 "Randal Metz Day,” in honor his long & illustrious career.

This event is made possible thanks to generous funding by the Friends of the Menlo Park Library.
