Dave Herzog’s Marionettes

Bring the whole family and see the amazing Dave Herzog and his marionettes perform in a variety show. Dave Herzog’s Marionettes are colorful marionettes, or string puppets, that sing, dance, walk the tightrope and perform on the trapeze.

Herzog has been involved in puppetry since receiving a toy marionette from his father when he was four years old. As a full-time professional puppeteer for 44 years, Dave has performed in thousands of shows in theaters, amusement parks, schools, and libraries nationwide. Dave is best known in the Chicago area for performing at the world-famous Navy Pier for 19 years.

Herzog has been a guest performer with Chicago’s acclaimed Hystopolis Productions and made his New York stage debut in 1991 at the famed Joseph Papp Public Theater. Herzog creates all of the hand-carved marionettes featured in his touring marionette productions.
