For children I perform Professor McGonagall from the "Harry Potter" novels, Tinker Bell from "Peter Pan," " Glinda "The Wizard of Oz," "The Queen of Hearts "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"& more!
FAIRY PARTIES! My parties introduce children and adults to the world of fairies through singing, dancing and story-telling. We also go on scavenger hunts and use our findings to make wands!
Carol was an excellent performer and the kids loved being around her! Her portrayal of Ariel was great! Thank you very much, Carol!
Carol did a great job entertaining the kids with making magic wands and the scavenger hunt.
I didnt really interact with her, so I dont know how much of a hit she was
Carol was an absolute blessing to our production. She was very professional, took ownership of her role, and gave us 200%. She was easy to stay in contact with, quick to respond, and made our event unbelievably smooth. I would highly recommend her!
Response from Carol Weakland:
It was a joy to bring Mrs. Claus to life in your video. Wishing you the best! Carol
We hired Carol to do a children's interactive halloween walk through . She made our event truly amazing!! Her performance is very interesting and fun. Such a wonderful actress. She captivated them as she performed a short story that ended with a moral or lesson. I would refer her to anyone for any age or event. She is so easy to work with, very pleasant personality and well versed. I cannot say enough!!! What a wonderful experience for our staff and the participants.
We hired Carol to make a visit as the Queen of Hearts to the lodge we'd rented for our wedding for our two families. There were a lot of kids, and they were totally amazed to have Her Majesty there. She was enchanting, professional, warm, engaging and just wonderful. I am SO GLAD I chose Carol over something like face-painting or balloon animals. The experience was so much richer and more memorable for the kids, who got to participate in something truly interactive, rather than just sitting still or watching.
Carol had tea with the children, told them the story of Alice in Wonderland, then did a wand-making project that they loved so much. Her costuming was astounding, as was her acting. Please, if you're considering entertainment for your next party, choose Carol. She can do a huge variety of roles, is happy to work around your needs and take suggestions, and knows what she's doing.
The kids are still talking about their visit from the Queen, and it will be a memory that will last forever for them. My wedding morning was made all the more special because Her Majesty came to call, and enchanted all the children I love so much.
Response from Carol Weakland:
Her Majesty thanks you and the princesses for an absolutely enchanting experience - one that will linger forever in her heart!
Fantastic performance of "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" at the Vic. I can't wait to see your other shows!

What to Expect
My one woman shows are intimate --even when they are performed on stage --almost as if the audience has come to visit the character's residence.
Past Performance venues have ranged from schools, libraries, historical sites to traditional theatrical stages.
My Children's story-telling programs can be quite elaborate depending on your needs.
