Sunday, July 26, 2020

Join us for the classic story of a lad and his magical lamp.

This summer Menlo Park 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, enjoy an exciting adventure with Aladdin, the popular hero from "1001 Arabian Nights." Watch as Aladdin thwarts the evil sorcerer, discovers the magical lamp, befriends the powerful genie, and saves the princess. Utilizing traditional music, intricate costumes,and dramatic staging, Fratello Marionettes presents this magical tale as it has never been seen before.
