Halloween this year is certainly different from what we’re used to, but the pandemic is no reason not to have some Halloween fun, but in a different fashion. So, here are some Saturday “Gayle on the *VIRTUAL* Go!” Halloween suggestions. Enjoy! Please stay safe!


 Bob Baker’s Halloween Spooktacular 

PlayhouseLive Streaming Now 


The Pasadena Playhouse Producing Artistic Director Danny Feldman announces the continuation of Family Entertainment on PlayhouseLive with the Bob Baker Marionette Theater’s production of Bob Baker’s Hallowe’en SpOoKtAcUlAr.
Filmed in front of a live audience, this wonderous Halloween offering – an eye-popping and unforgettable musical variety puppet spectacular not to be missed — launches online at Playhouse
Live today, and is part of the Fall line-up of pay-per-view streaming theatrical events. 
Gather your Goblins and Ghoulies and settle in for a haunting night of family fun, streaming exclusively on Playhouse
Live. Bob Baker’s Hallowe’en SpOoKtAcUlAr will send chills down your spine as you delight in this spectral showcase of sweet, spooky spirits featuring beloved characters Purple People Eater, Dracula, the Invisible Man, and nearly one hundred of their closest puppet pals.
A beloved Los Angeles tradition, more than one million children of all ages have experienced a Bob Baker puppet performance since the Theater’s establishment in 1963. In addition to in-house performances, members of the Bob Baker puppet family have appeared in motion pictures, on frequent television shows, and, through a robust traveling company, at the Hollywood Bowl, community centers, backyards, parades, and anywhere there’s fun to be had. 
For the upcoming holiday season, Playhouse
Live will exclusively bring Bob Baker’s Holiday on Strings directly into homes for the first time.  

Additional information about PlayhouseLive and its programming, including new announcements and pricing specials, are available at www.playhouselive.org.

It was a radio series that became television and motion picture classic. “Dragnet.”  The creator, the star, producer and director was Jack Webb.
