Marionnette Magic


Unfortunately the Driveway Follies puppet show has been cancelled for 2020. The goblins are ghouls are sorry not to be able to host you in person this year, but we haven't left you with empty claws... We've created a host of videos to bring some Follies magic to your homes.

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.
