Valentine’s Day with Captured Aural Phantasy Theater
Love is in the Air! Join the Captured Aural Phantasy Theater (CAPT) group and the Bob Baker Marionette Theater for PUPPET COMICS LOVE, an evening of vintage Valentine treats that combines multi-media performances of vintage romance comics and the sweet seductions of the legendary, historic Bob Baker marionettes. The night includes live music and entertainment to stoke the passions of the season…and bring a smile to your face.
CAPT combines the art, drama and comedy of a vintage radio program with the live entertainment of a variety show. Shows are built around performances of vintage pop culture gems, usually comic book stories, along with live sound fx, music and projected art. In between the featured stories are short acts, sultry singing, prizes, special guests and live music. No joke is too low or innuendo left un-emphasized. The cast is comprised of a diverse group of Los Angeles based actors and musicians.
Romance comics were a huge genre in the early 50’s (second only to horror comics of the time like Tales from the Crypt), each one filled with sordid tales of love gone wrong, hearts broken and happily ever afters. In the show, these vintage tales are brought to life for the 21st Century along with the classic, show-stopping performances by the Bob Baker Marionettes, who have been making LA swoon for over 60 years.
The show is open to all. Candy and refreshments will be available, even the adult kind. Proceeds go to the Bob Baker Marionette Theater, as it builds plans for its future in Los Angeles.
The program will be held on Saturday, February 11th at 8:00 pm.
