In a time of video games, violent cartoons and toys that play all by themselves, it's reassuring to see your kids enjoying an ancient art like puppetry. At Kramer's, when the lights go down and the music plays, the audience seems to come alive along with the puppets! 

One of the longest running on-site puppetry theatres in the U.S., Bob Kramer's Marionnettes has been enchanting audiences of all ages for more than 45 years.

The stories are wholesome, old-fashioned tales like "PETER AND THE WOLF", "HANSEL AND GRETEL", and "TOYLAND".

It takes about 1,500 hours of exacting work to bring each puppet to life. The head and limbs of the puppets are hand-carved from wood. The costumes are often made of velvet or brocade, trimmed with sequins, rhinestones and metallics. Each marrionnette is a unique, museum-quality piece.
