Summer Puppetry Festival: Vaudeville Follies

Sunday, June 2, 2019

The Summer Puppetry Festival kicks off with a variety show from the Fratello Marionettes!

This summer, the Belle Haven Branch Library celebrates puppetry in its many forms, by hosting a series of puppet shows by a variety of performers from throughout the Bay Area and beyond! 

This week, Fratello Marionettes presents a variety show with an astounding cast, including an opera singer, a trapeze artist, a trained dog, and a ballet-dancing chicken. Don't miss it!

About Fratello Marionettes
The Fratello Marionettes has produced classic marionette shows since 1989. Puppeteer Kevin Menegus brings stories and vignettes to life through hand-crafted marionettes, each of which are conceptualized and built by the puppeteers themselves, with painstaking attention to detail. Each marionette takes two to three months to create.

This free event is funded by the Friends of the Menlo Park Library.
