The Marie Hitchcock Puppet Theater has long been a mecca for children and is located in beautiful historic Balboa Park, San Diego California. The Puppet Theater was originally part of the California Pacific International Exposition in 1935. The Exposition was organized to celebrate the completion of the Panama Canal. The theater still runs weekly live performances for thousands of guests each year.
