Hi, I'm Loni 


I've enjoyed dressing up as characters ever since I was a little girl. My heads always been in the clouds and I've surrounded myself in the world of art, imagination and fantasy. I had been working behind the scenes as a makeup artist for the past 19 years, having not one clue that I would one day be living my dream portraying a variety of cartoon characters. I started my acting career working for a princess party company in 2013 and have put my heart into it ever since. I also have worked as a special needs assistant teacher for Benicia Unified School District, & well as my new business as a Magical Health Coach.

Hi, I'm Adam

Hi! I’m Adam. Ever since I was younger, I enjoyed acting. I graduated from an actor’s training program to refine my craft. I have been in countless musicals and plays, most often landing leading roles. I have a great deal of experience with film acting as well. One of my strong suits is improvisational acting, and I’ve been in an improvisational acting troupe since 2009. As a current  substitute teacher of Fairfield-Suisun Unified & past Special Needs educator, I have worked with kids of all ages. I am always thrilled to bring smiles to peoples’ faces, whenever I perform.

In college, I continued this passion, both performing in several plays and taking various acting classes. I’m an experienced singer, a well versed actor and an ameateur acrobat.  

I love being a part of My Once Upon A Time because it brings so many of my passions together. Working as a cast member has been the accumulation of so many of the things that I enjoy in life, whether it be acting, or bringing joy to a child’s day.

I've been dreaming of portraying fairytale characters I admire since childhood. Making costumes since 2011 it was an excellent creative outlet for all my favorite hobbies, (sewing, painting, crafting, sculpting and modeling.) But my favorite part is getting to share the wonder and joy that with meeting your fictional hero in real life. I am so thrilled to be working with My Once Upon a Time to make every special event a little more magical.

I am currently a high school senior based in the Bay Area. I have loved to sing and perform since I was little. In middle school I joined SingOut musical theatre, and I’ve been there ever since, playing roles including Ariel (The Little Mermaid), Lily (Anastasia), and Val (A Chorus Line). I’ve been working with kids for years as a nanny, teacher’s assistant, and camp counselor. About two years ago I started doing character events and kids parties and immediately loved it. Seeing the smile on people’s faces when they see their favorite character always brightens my day, so I am thrilled to be a part of this cast bringing joy to kids.

Danny Headshot

 Growing up I always knew I was a performer. was inspired by the characters I saw on the big screen and those who brought them to life in reality. I picked up theater at an early age, got into stage performance, stunt work, martial arts, choreography and improv, which eventually led me to find my niche in Cosplay. 

Although it’s cliché, I still believe in the magic of meeting your heroes. Everyone deserves a chance to feel like the hero of their own story. That’s why I am so excited to be a part of this incredible ensemble!

Hi, I'm Charlie

Hi, I’m Charlie! I’m a college student studying American Sign Language, and I’m working towards my AA in ASL Interpreting/Deaf Culture. I’ve always loved playing dress up, singing, dancing, and acting, and I started to really get into cosplay and costuming when I was fourteen. I worked as a princess when I was a teenager, and it was one of the most rewarding things I ever did! Being able to combine my love of music, theatre, and costuming into working as a princess brings me so much joy, and I’m delighted to be back in business as a part of My Once Upon A Time!

Hi, I'm BJ

IMG_1744.JPG

Ever since I was a kid, acting was what I just did. I would perform during recess and do my own version of “Stand-Up” Comedy, and kids would literally form a circle and sit down to watch me entertain them. As I got older I went into Acting in High School, and told several Drama Classes in College. For me, performing is another way for me to utilize my God-given gifts! It’s fun, I enjoy it, and I LOVE putting smiles on other people’s faces and seeing them laugh! This is simply another way to become another character and have fun with it! And let’s face it, we all still have a little bit of kid in us all! That’s why I love My Once Upon A Time and love just being a kid again.

Hi, I'm Courtney

CourtneyB.Headshot.jpg

Hello, I'm Courtney! I am a recent graduate of San Jose State University with a degree in Forensic Chemistry. When I am not in the lab, I love to perform and dance with various independent color guard groups around California including In Motion Performance Ensemble and Imbue. It combines the art of acting, dancing and musicality that I love to put into my performance as a princess or superhero. When I was younger my mother also ran a daycare where I helped her care for children between the ages of 1 and 10. It has been rewarding to work with My Once Upon a Time because it combines skills that I have learned in my childhood and skills that I continue to learn every day as a performer.
