The Mitchell Showboat Marionettes
The Mitchell Marionettes represent a long tradition of entertainment excellence at the Eastern States Exposition. They have made life-long happy memories for thousands of fairgoers. Founders Howard and Marjorie Mitchell are standouts in creativity and are extraordinary human beings.

The Yuma County Fair is proud to have been the very first to have the Mitchell Marionettes, way back in 1969, and we've enjoyed having the troupe back in the years since. Your shows are unique and always entertaining.

WOW! What a fabulous show! Great for 'children' of ANY age. It was a delight to have you back for the third consecutive year at the 2008 Georgia National Fair.
Ashley Brown, Georgia National Fair, Perry, GA
We have thoroughly enjoyed having you over the years -- every performance a 'sell-out!' All four of you -- Nancy, Jack, Annie, and Millie the Monkey -- have become an important part of our extend fair family.

When I presented the entertainment options to my fair board this year, they responded, 'Whatever you do is fine, just make sure the Mitchell Marionettes are at the top of the list!' We're excited to have you coming back in 2009 for the sixth year!

A most entertaining show and a craft very few offer! Nancy and Jack are very professional and very accommodating... they are so easy to work with!

Your wonderful puppet characters, spectacular Showboat theatre setting and fast-paced, entertaining shows are a wonderful feature for any fair striving to celebrate the very best in family fun! For ten years, you have delighted Marin County Fair guests of all ages with your magical puppetry.

The Mitchell Marionettes show is the biggest, most wholesome family entertainment that we've had in the 12 years I've been here. Everybody loved it! And the repartee between Millie the Monkey and the kids was wonderful to see. We're having you back!
