The Skirball celebrates the art of puppetry during this festive day of performances, art making, and new and classic tales told through marionettes, shadow, and full-body puppets.

The program brings together some of Southern California’s most talented puppeteers and artists working in a wide range of cultural and artistic styles. 

This year’s program includes performances and creations by the North Carolina–based puppeteer and designer Jeghetto, LA's own Bob Baker Marionette Theater, and Sandglass Theater from Vermont, plus live music and art making throughout the day.

The day ends with grand procession of puppets.

Space in limited, and advance tickets are advised. The price includes Museum admission; limited Noah's Ark tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis only.

Advance tickets are recommended, online or by calling 877.722.4849.
