About

Founded in 2003 in Phoenix, Arizona, Omnipresent Puppet Theater is Bakersfield’s most unique source for quality family entertainment.

Our shows appear at local libraries, schools, community events and theatres, bringing the art of puppetry to the lower San Joaquin Valley.  And we are registered with Young Audiences of Kern County.  Check out our shows page and find out how to bring us to your next event!
