Established in 1991 by renowned performance artist, Marla Mase, PARTYpoopers was launched out of a raw downtown-Manhattan loft in TriBeCa.
This theatrical venue was the first (and last) of its kind - with an over the top dress-up area filled with hundreds of costumes, face and body paint, boas, gloves, make-up fit for thousands of princesses, hand-crafted backdrops designed by local Tribeca artists, as well as a Haunted House 'stolen' from an off-Broadway show.
Yet, it was the performers who brought our venue to life - fusing a passion for entertaining along with a fearless commitment to making "it" happen. These clever and sophisticated actors enchanted both children and their parents, and eventually the PARTYpoopers vibe expanded out of its venue and into a full-service event planning company, and the creation of our adult division, partySWANK.com.
Marla Mase has produced over 2,500 parties since founding PARTYpoopers in 1991. She is a playwright, performer, producer, poet and songwriter. She recently launched True Groove Records with legendary guitarist and Global Soul Pioneer, Tomás Doncker. She holds an MA from NYU in writing/performance and performs around the world. Most importantly, she is the mother to two beautiful souls.
It's Marla’s love for theatre that has made PARTYpoopers one of the premier children's party companies in NYC; it is also what gives partySWANK.com parties their dramatic flair. She has an astute eye for casting entertainers that love what they do, and therefore, excel at what they do.
The PARTYpoopers philosophy is that "a party needs to be dramatic. Not necessarily in a 'big' way; it can be subtle. Every party has its own energy, and every event is a story that we try to tell or let unfold. The parties I do are entirely about the client’s vision and the event itself, each with its own heart, mind, and individual flavor. Of course, that means, they can never be replicated." Marla believes that first and foremost parties are about "FUN." When clients are stressed, she reminds them, "It's all good. It's a PARTY!"

“Marla and her team coordinated our entertainment and décor for Pajama Program's last two annual fund raising dinners at Capitale. Marla transformed our ideas into reality even when they seemed quirky and undoable. Our events wowed our crowd and people still talk about them. Marla is a true professional- she eliminated the stress normally associated with party planning. PARTYpoopers made our party ‘dreamlike”
- Susan Brown, Board of Directors, PajamaProgram.org
“I hired Marla and PARTYpoopers when my eldest son was turning five. It was pirate themed and they transformed our space into a genuine Pirate’s Lair; the entertainers were so funny and engaging that people talked about it for years. So when it came time to do his Bar Mitzvah I knew immediately who to call. Marla and her partySWANK team did both of my sons’ bar mitzvahs, each one was completely different and reflected the personality of the boy. Both had impeccable design, world-class entertainment and a great energy of fun and sophistication that cannot be surpassed. Once again, people are talking.”

“I’ve been using PARTYpoopers for nine years now. They have done everything from children’s birthday parties, where they have given me “soup to nuts” to a bar and bat mitzvah which I did myself, and only had them rent dancers, airbrush artists and a magician for the night. They are easy and fun to work with and have a great understanding of the clients needs and desires. I would recommend them to my best friend…Oh and I have!”
- Sandy Tabatznick, Board of Directors, LaLeLaProject.Org
“I’ve been using PARTYpoopers for both my kids parties for years. Marla always comes through brilliantly in executing all my crazy theme choices.”
- Jodi Schwartz, lawyer and mom of two
“We had a GREAT time! The kids were completely in awe of the entertainment and the adults were laughing hysterically. I received tons of compliments for the entertainment. A smashing success!”
Best, Sandra Jovicic
"I''ve been using PARTYpoopers ever since my kids were babies. They do the best parties, hands-down. And I continued to use them as partySWANK for my grown-up parties- Work parties, networking parties, my 40th, my 50th, holidays, you name it -- creative, easy-going, and stream-lined -- what more could you want?"
