Our Mission and Vision
SAVING A LOST ART
The mission of Driveway Follies is the creation and preservation of the art of marionette puppetry. Our mission is achieved through annual Halloween performances. Seasoned puppeteers enjoy the opportunity to practice their art, and aspiring puppeteers are provided an opportunity to learn marionette stagecraft.
MISSION IN ACTION
The Driveway Follies stage is located in one of Oakland's most accessible districts. The Glenview location is just east of central Oakland and is a short walk from public transit. The diverse, multi-generational audience enjoys a wholesome, uplifting and educational experience. The characters in our show form a multi-cultural cast. All acts are authentically set in specific world regions and times periods and showcase cultural diversity. All performances are offered free of charge.
