Marionnette Magic


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.
