About the Fratello Marionettes

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

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.

Founder, Performer, Builder

Founder Kevin Menegus became intrigued by puppetry after receiving a puppet as a gift, at age six.

Kevin 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.

Kevin holds a Bachelor of Music Degree in Percussion Performance from the University of The Pacific Conservatory of Music. This comes in handy for selecting and orchestrating the right accompaniment for each marionette performance.

Kevin has performed for audiences around the world, including entertaining guests on several major cruise lines.
