It's hard to believe, but Bob Kramer's Marionnettes are celebrating 50 years of pulling the strings in this town. To mark the occasion, the group teams up with Elsie Parker and the Poor People of Paris for a special night of music and puppetry, The Poor Puppets of Paris
. Kramer and company have crafted a series of marionettes representing the great singers Charles Aznavour and Edith Piaf, as well as St. Louis legend Josephine Baker; these figures will perform their signature songs, with music provided by the Poor People of Paris. This is an event 50 years in the making, so don't miss it. The show takes place at 7:30 p.m. at the Sheldon Concert Hall (3648 Washington Boulevard; 314-533-9900 or www.thesheldon.org
). Tickets are $10.
