Greetings fans and friends of Driveway Follies!
Thank you bats and cats for another spooky season. Check back here for more information about our 2022 shows, tentatively scheduled for October 30 and 31, 2022 starting at dusk and ending around 10 p.m.; and as always shows are free for all bats, cats, witches, ghouls and human families. Of course our crystal ball is still tuned-in to safety recommendations and we're requiring that everyone include a CDC-approved mask in their costume.
In a time of computer generated entertainment, Driveway Follies offers a rare opportunity to see the nearly lost art of marionette puppetry in an intimate setting. Driveway Follies is recognized for providing professionally staged family-friendly Halloween marionette performances each year in Oakland. Beginning in 2007 with just three puppeteers performing a three act show, Driveway Follies has expanded to a crew of eight puppeteers performing five acts. The repertoire celebrates and illustrates historic and cultural aspects of Halloween, some with an educational twist. Since inception, a diverse audience of over 10,000 Halloween revelers has enjoyed the performances.
Driveway Follies is unique alternative to the gore and commercialism that has become a part of modern Halloween.
