The Bob Baker Marionette Theatre is a kind of gem for many in Los Angeles.

Founded by legendary puppet master Bob Baker, who passed away last year, it's the oldest children's theater company in Los Angeles. This weekend they celebrate Halloween with a show they call the Halloween Spooktacular. 

Alex Evans, one of the theatre's puppeteers, joined the show with more.
