The L.A. icon Bob Baker Marionette Theater has partnered with thematic party package service, Of the Night, on a Dracula’s Disco Halloween experience brought directly to front doors this Oct. 23 and 30.
Of the Night has been dropping off colorfully themed at-home soirees to households across L.A. since early July. These party packages have all the makings of a perfect night out, translated into a perfect night in. Each package includes thematic food, drink, décor, costuming, activities and music, with 10% of proceeds benefiting various progressive nonprofits. Dracula’s Disco Of the Night offers parties of two the opportunity to transform their home (and their evening!) into a vampire-approved discothèque, while providing financial support to the Bob Baker Marionette Theater.
Inspired by the Dracula’s Disco performance showcased at Bob Baker’s yearly “Halloween Spooktacular” revue, Dracula’s Disco Of the Night marries classic Halloween necessities with the glamour of late ’70s disco.
The package includes a bottle of rosé from Vampire Vineyards, cans of Disco Queen from Two Pitchers Brewing Company, Dracula-approved nibbles, fiercely sharp fangs with bejeweling kit, a blood red disco ball, lace chokers (for hiding bite marks), red glitter lipstick to accent their fangs, Kryolan fake blood, bat puppets, holographic hair and body glitter, red tinsel curtain, spiderwebs, accoutrement to transform their space into Dracula’s lair, activities that harken the glory days of nightlife, and a curated Spotify playlist.
For an additional fee, package recipients can request that their party package be delivered via theatrical performance. In this case, that means a marionette show. For $100 extra – and with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Bob Baker Marionette Theater – Dracula himself will perform to his namesake track “Dracula’s Disco,” with party package in tow.
Recipients can also add-on, for another $100, a kid-friendly package that includes pumpkins, candy, a carving kit and copies of “Goosebumps.” A five-course fall tasting menu from Chef Laurent Quenioux of LQ Foodings is offered for $75 per person.
For over 55 years, the Bob Baker Marionette Theater has provided unique theatrical experiences to intergenerational audiences with the mission of educating, celebrating, and rejuvenating puppetry and the allied arts. It is Of the Night and Bob Baker Marionette Theater’s goal to bring all the whimsical magic of the Halloween season to the safety of living rooms, allowing parents and children to continually embrace moments of wonder and play, even amidst this fragmented year.
