Wow! What a Show!

The experience was amazing! My lil boy and friends were entertained by all the different characters. There are less expensive marionettes out there, however, you get what you pay for. And what I paid was well worth the money! Thanks Frank! See you next year!

It's a wonderful show for families!

We enjoyed the show very much, and I especially like the way Franklin interacted with our kids near the front of the stage. The kids couldn't stop laughing! At the end of the show our kids had the chance to learn puppet dance. It was a total enjoyable experience. I highly recommend it.

Response from Franklin Haynes Marionettes:

This was a show for Pico Rivera Library's Summer Reading Program. It was a lot of fun.

We chose the Puppets at Night Show since this was an all adult event. Having already seen a children's show at a friend's house - I decided that the Puppets at Night would be the perfect event for such an evening event.

It was truly a fun night and everyone that attended the event loved it and had never experienced anything like it before. the only complaint was that they were sorry when it was over - they wanted more!!

Franklin was professional, arrived on time and provided great entertainment for a mixed age group of people.
We would not hesitate to hire him again for such a special event.

Review by Carla W.

The Puppet show was held on the Greenbelt in Seal Beach as part of our Seal Beach 95th Birthday Founders
Day Celebration. The children loved the show and everyone was pleased without the excellent performance.
This is the 3rd time in 15 years that Franklin Hayes has appeared at our Founders Day Celebration (held every
5 years).

Review by Ilene G.

We thoroughly enjoyed having the Franklin Haynes Marionettes perform at our library again! "Puppets on Parade" showcased a variety of characters and was enjoyed with great delight by children, parents and grandparents in our audience. The puppeteer was skilled and pleasant,and terrific with the children,willingly posing with Pinocchio for pictures with the children at the conclusion of the show! We look forward to booking another show soon!
