Best Place for a Kid's Birthday Party - 2012
Kramer's Marionnette Theatre
Sure, you could have your child's birthday party at any number of bounce-house emporia or arcade-themed chain restaurants. But how about something different, distinctive and very St. Louis-centric in nature? A local tradition since 1963, Bob Kramer and cohort Dug Feltch have performed with his cast of puppets all over the city, nationally and even in Eastern Europe. Kramer and Feltch will bring their cast of caterpillars, bees, ostriches and other random puppets to your venue of choice and make your young one part of the show. Better yet, they'll rent you their comfortably ramshackle studio in the Central West End and even provide themed cupcakes. All this costs less than what you'd pay for the nearest paintball palace or tearoom, and your kid will leave feeling like a star.
