This show is designed for larger family style events. It can be performed indoors or outdoors but the performance area needs to be a large, flat, hard surface (such as wood, concrete or pavement). Parking must be provided near the entrance of the venue and there can be no stairs that would inhibit loading and unloading of the rolling performance rack. An electrical outlet will be needed near the performance area to accommodate the sound system.
*Rates are based on travel within the general Los Angeles area. Additional fees may apply for travel outside of this area.

Below you will find some frequently asked questions and answers about my marionette show. Have additional questions? Don't hesitate to contact me.
We recommend booking at least one month in advance of your party or event. The farther in
advance you book, the better your chances of getting your preferred date and time.
The marionette show needs at least 10’ x 10’ of performance area. It must be on a hard surface
such as wood, carpet, tile, concrete or pavement (no grass or dirt). A nearby electrical outlet is
needed for the sound system. Parking must be located near the entrance and there can be no
stairs between our vehicle and the performance area to accommodate the large rolling rack.
For this reason, we do not recommend the marionette show for birthday parties or small
gatherings unless it is being held in a community room or event venue.
The Variety in Miniature marionette show takes 30-40 minutes to set up once I arrive and unload.
