Lisa K Cohen: Director
My backround as a dance and drama teacher is the inspiration for our entertainment style. I am influenced by Piaget and the theory of dramatic play. I think that events should involve the adults as well....parties are a time when there is "Permission To Pretend" - whether it is a caricature artist drawing a grandma on a motor-bike or a princess fantasy tea party....this is the time the time we can escape and enjoy the best in life.
We are all very well trained in theatre. Most of the entertainers on our team have degrees in or are studying dramatic arts.
What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 60 - 120 minutes
We provide a creative and theatrical approach to children's entertainment. The focus of our children's parties is on involving the children on a creative play level. I created this approach many years ago when I staged an Alice in Wonderland Tea Party for the CBS Home Show. For example, such thematic games as looking for a white rabbit, playing flamingo croquet or painting the roses read are organized into fun theatrical large group games.
We do many kind of events and parties, and always start with what the client wants- whether it is a Super Hero Event at a Country Club, or like our recent appearance at a Taco Bell Employee Breakfast. We love to do holiday events, such as Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, Carolers, and The Easter Bunny. Lisa Cohen can also organize Judaic Community and Family Events. She has worked with The Jewish Community Center of OC for many years.
Our clients can expect talented, lovely caring entertainment with a creative and custom approach...all supervised by our director, Lisa Cohen, who has spent years as a drama, dance and music teacher for young children. She has a B.A. in Theatre and Dance and completed her coursework for her Masters in Educational Administration.
We have been doing parties for many years. We have liability insurance.
We do magic shows, facepainting, characters, storytelling and balloon decor and balloon art.
We also coordinate large events and have a photographer and videographer on our team.
