Community Calendar July 5-11, 2018

You can experience the wonders of The Fratello Marionettes at the Mesquite Library on Wednesday, July 11.

The Fratello Marionettes have been entertaining audiences through the art of marionettes since 1989.

Founder Kevin Menegus became intrigued by puppetry after receiving a puppet as a gift, at age six. He went on to apprentice with some of the leading puppeteers in the country, including Tony Urbano, Bob Baker, Randal Metz and Lewis Mahlmann, learning from them while developing his own unique styles of puppet making and performing.

The company continues the tradition of classic marionette performances. All the puppets you see in The Fratello Marionettes’ repertoire are conceptualized and built by the puppeteers themselves, with painstaking attention to detail. Each marionette takes two to three months to create.

The company also collaborates with local symphony orchestras to produce unforgettable performances blending live classical music with the storytelling art of puppetry.

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, The Fratello Marionettes has performed in locations around the world.
