One Colorado is really thrilled to be throwing a Garden Party Benefit for Bob Baker Marionette Theater to help with their upcoming move to Highland Park. They’ve been a mainstay in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles for over 55 years, and we to help get them get settled in their new home.
The star of the Garden Party Benefit will be a truly unique show, “Over the Garden Wall.” It’s a Bob Baker Marionette spectacular which pre-dates to the historic L.A. theater! This show hasn’t been seen in over 30 years and has been restored to proudly present a peek over the wall and into the routines of the flowers, lady bugs, bunnies and more. A springtime treat you won’t want to miss! Alex Evans, Bob Baker’s ever-delightful Executive Director, will introduce the show.
“The magical touches in the puppets, props and music from Over the Garden Wall have captivated our company for years now; complete with felt topiary set pieces, sunflower encrusted dresses worn by picnicking teddy bears, the diamond coats of the pink squirrels – they are from an era that we hold up as some of Bob’s most beautiful work. We are overjoyed at the chance to bring this show to life again with the wonderful and supportive people of One Colorado” – Alex Evans
In addition to the swell rarely-seen show, there’ll be a raffle for a Bob Baker Marionette show at your home and prizes from One Colorado retailers and restaurants. There’ll be fun family activation’s, including a puppet making crafts with the Southern California Children’s Museum, a puppet meet-and-greet and an irresistible selfie station. All paid guests will go home with some nifty party favors.
One Colorado could not be more excited about this benefit. We’ve had the pleasure of hosting Bob Baker Shows going on three years now, and to be able to present a rare show AND raise money for the cause, three cheers to that! We want to help our pals continue to bring joy to Angelinos of all ages! (Poster Artwork by: @leliamaywoods)
