My Story

The love of performing began for me at a very young age. I always wanted to be an actress or a big Broadway star. However, when I got to NYC, I took a left at Broadway and found myself in children’s theatre.

My path in life changed with the next audition: a play program for children wanted actors. Hooray! I got the job!

I loved teaching young children so much, I decided to go back to school for a Masters in Early Childhood Education.  The lucky thing for me was that I did NOT get a job teaching public school!  Instead, I had to get creative and make my own job.  It was the best thing that ever happened to me.

Parents at the play program began asking me if I did parties.  After the fourth request, the opportunity was knocking so loud, I ran to answer the door!

I bring a theatrical approach to kids parties.  As your party director, I make sure everyone has a good part, even the parents.  My props are fun, colorful and musical.  I even created puppet characters that make everyone laugh and dance.  I sing familiar favorites as well as a few original songs while accompanying myself on the guitar.  I bring tons of energy and enthusiasm too.  The trick is to do short activities for short attention spans.

Now I am training and building a team of talented entertainers to do what I do, which is provide a unique party experience for our under five fans!  Our job is to make children happy!  How cool is that?!

We are more than entertainers.  We are teachers, musicians, and parents. We understand how to motivate young children to feel like they can sing, dance, play, and just have fun being who they are.  We create a positive atmosphere that enables children to feel safe to play together enjoying games where everyone can be the best they can be.  We bring the energy and the inspiration – the children do the rest!

Our company is here because we want to bring joy to the party celebration and facilitate activities which engender success for children. We don’t need prizes. Everybody wins because they all get to have FUN!

And guess what?  My second CD “Roller Coaster Ride” won a 2013 Parents Choice Approved Award!

“…it was just awesome to see how much fun they had!”

Miss Dylan, an overdue note of thanks for the best birthday party we’ve had!! All the kids had a ball, especially the birthday girl! The kids loved the music, the dancing, all the different activities, it was just awesome to see how much fun they had! The best part is that every time the kids have come over to play since then they ask if you’ll be in the basement singing again. We hold playgroups to your CD! Robyn F., Scotch Plains, NJ
