Bauerovi Josefov Puppet TheaterRoman Bauer and Libuška Bauerová have formed the Bauerovi Josefov Puppet Theater, which performs classic family marionette theater. They perform shows for children and adults with puppets they create themselves, playing around 150 performances every year. They have performed all over the Czech Republic as well as abroad. They have toured in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and throughout many cities for the fourth time around the United States.

Bouček Puppet TheaterThe Bouček Puppet Theater in Jaroměř was established in 1921. The founder was Rudolf Bouček, whose name the theatre bears. In 1924 the theatre was offered a small unused garden house, which was gradually restored and extended and in 1928 it became the largest permanent puppet theatre in the Czech Republic and maybe in the entire Europe. The group still seeks to maintain the tradition of classical marionette theater performances. The theatre is currently managed by Roman and Libuška Bauer.
