What to Expect - Characters
*& Frequently asked questions
What to expect from your event:
Your event is a special, magical occasion - and we are here to make it that way, each and every time. Below are some important FAQs to help you understand what we do, what options are available, and how we stand out.
What will the character(s) do at my event?
Our performers are improvisational actors and do not work from a script - this is not a show, it is a special visit from the character(s) you requested. They interact with you and your guests, perform activities, and play games in character.
Characters have a variety of available activities / games / interactions based on the type of package you select. For a full list of potential options, please see “What types of games / activities do you provide?” below.
Every performer is different, and every character is unique; no two visits will be the same. We do our best to accurately portray these characters. If the character is typically more reserved, then you will receive a different performance than a character who is more bubbly or bouncy. But don’t worry - they all love to have fun!
What can I expect from your performer(s)?
Whimsy! Our actors live to bring joy and amazement to every event. They are the character(s) they portray from the moment they arrive, up until they depart.
Because these visits are unscripted, we try not to have a strict itinerary, but instead gauge the reaction of the kids. For example, If we have an outgoing group, there’s usually more play, more bouncing around, and less structure. But if the group is more shy, the visit may be more of a meet and greet style with more organized games.
We do our best to honor your special requests, but we find it’s best to let the party flow naturally based on the attendees.
Our Goal: to bring merriment and wonder to your special event. We will do our best to satisfy your needs and bring your vision to life.
Do I need to plan my own activities?
You do not need to plan activities on your end, but we recommend having someone available to organize the space for any games / activities, and to encourage any shy guests to participate.
*Please note: adult supervision is required at all times.
What type of games / activities do you provide?
Activities and games vary based on both the type of package and character(s) you have selected. Not all actors can perform the same activities. However, general activities and/or games may include the following:
