STAGES St. Louis is a musical theatre and performing arts company. They put on shows and also offer drama camps and classes. On the first Wednesday of ever month they offer a unique story time. They read the story first, and then split the kids in 2 groups- one group goes to act out the book and the other half does a craft related to the story. Then they switch. This is all free but they do require you to register which you can do online. The lady that runs it is amazing and really tries to get all the kids to participate. Sometimes it's been really packed and other times we were in and out in 30 minutes.
