Bob Baker Marionette Theater is reaching out for help with some pretty scary news: the puppet theater is on the brink of closure.
COVID-19 has devastated small businesses. Cultural institutions like BBMT are losing $30,000 per month and in danger of closing forever. In order to survive 2021, the beloved theater must meet their annual goal of $365,000 and to do that they’ve asked DTLA Weekly to help spread the word.
On behalf of all of us here at DTLA Weekly THANK YOU for being a friend of the puppets.
We’ve never missed an issue without Bob Baker even though we nay have printed you as Bob Barker by accident a few times. Our publisher has a lot of arms, not eyes.
Although we have never seen a show, it has been an honor to have been able to share your shows in our pages for the psst 4 years. Thank you for sharing the love. #KeepImaginationAlive
