Have suitcase, will travel.
Marcy was very professional and engaged at our community event. She was able to bring her own chair and table for set-up which also helped us a lot and very adaptable to our setting. The other event coordinators thought she did a splendid job as well.
Thank you so much again!
"Thanks for being there at our June 21 event! Your presence helped it to feel like a party! "

Response from Marcy Grams:
I greatly appreciate your time in working with me to plan your successful event and thank you for the nice reviews. Creating space for smiles, ~Marcy
I was looking for a storyteller to fill in time slots for our elementary schools “Spring Fun Day” event.
Marcy was very eager to fill the position and responded quickly to communications.
However, I am not satisfied with the service from her.
She advertised herself as a superhero storyteller whose story would discuss a good vs evil theme.
I understood that her story would have the character “over coming personal obstacles”.
However, turns out there was no story.
She came dressed at Wonder Woman, cool. But, even a student asked her, “when does the story start?”
There were several complaints from teachers because her topic turned religious ( I would think an obvious no-no for a public elementary school).
More complaints came after lunch, when the event coordinator asked her to be mindful of religious content in her presentation.
She observed the request, but cut her session from 40 to 20 minutes and released students early.
Parent volunteers and teachers had to scramble to fill the time.
Marcy was a treat to have at our 6-year old's birthday party. She was patient and generous with sometimes rowdy kids. And she made sure everyone was happy and taken care of before she left. A really easy, sweet addition to a party!
Response from Marcy Grams:
Molly! Thank you for taking time to write such a nice review. The generous tip is also greatly appreciated. I really should stop with the party-cake-eating; but yours was particularly yummy! #thirstymoose #greatkiddos #thankyouneverseemstobeenuf XO ~Marcy
Had to cancel my son’s birthday party because of an April blizzard and Marcy was just amazing! She was willing to do whatever it takes to make it to the venue in bad weather and was extremely gracious when we had to cancel the event and the last minute. She issued a full refund immediately with no hassle! I didn’t get to see Marcy perform but I will be calling her up for any future events.
Response from Marcy Grams:
Thank you for your kind words and trust in me! I’m so sorry your event was postponed, but I’m sure the food was good!
I look forward to celebrating with you in the future. ~Marcy / “Wonder Woman” : )
Marcy was amazing. She showed up for our birthday in the middle of the Spring blizzard and never even questioned if the event would be canceled! She gave our twins a cape and crown which was such a sweet special touch. Our daughter went to bed tonight wearing the crown. She did a wonderful job with the face painting and even brought a helper which I was thankful for since more kids came than I expected!
Response from Marcy Grams:
Thank YOU, Kristin. Your family hosted quite the shin-ding! Besides meeting your beautiful family and friends, we enjoyed the entertainment by “Ryan-the-Magnificent”!
Thank you for inviting us! ~Marcy

What to Expect
Marcy is warm-hearted and a natural artist. She has been performing on stage since age thirteen, singing, dancing and acting ever since. She is a worship leader, playing piano and singing in English and Spanish. She can perform, confidently rep your company, or minister to warm souls.
~ For face painting inquiries, please keep in mind that an average of ten faces can receive 1/4 of their face painted per hour. So, one hour should be booked for a party of ten children, two hours for twenty children, three hours for thirty children, etcétera. Two to three face painters are available for bookings through Marcy Grams if you’d like double/triple duty for larger events.
~ For Princess Parties, Marcy arrives as a ‘tan’ princess of your choice. She has actor friends available for dark or light skinned princesses or male super heroes. For example, Marcy can arrive as Princess Anna, with or without Princess Elsa. Photos are available in Marcy’s photo gallery. For entertainment, please choose: a sing-a-long, tell the princess’s story, teach a song or dance, or face paint. Princess dresses are available in sizes 1-6 for dress up, and the birthday child will receive a small crown or gift (for boys).
~ For music, Marcy can sing to digital background tracks or play piano / keyboard, solo or lead a sing-a-along. She has all of her own equipment for groups up to forty. For large venues, please provide professional sound equipment. Marcy sings every weekend with other band members who are also available if you’d like a full band. Simply “Request a Free Quote”.
~ For storytelling, Marcy has a Beauty and the Beast story which incorporates a lesson explaining how love exists in each heart. We choose how to respond to hard times and will act like beast or can choose to act like Beauty with grace and kindness. The story of the eaglet and the ducklings is shared to help bring understanding to this story.
~ Marcy’s superhero story (as a Super or Warrior Woman), incorporates a lesson explaining how love is the super power that exists in each heart. We choose how to respond to hard times and can act like an evil villain, or we can choose to act like a super hero who defends the good in mankind. Two to three examples are shared to help bring understanding. The length is twenty minutes or can be extended up to thirty minutes by sharing how we each have the power to write our own life story. Story is explained as having a beginning with you as the main character. The middle of our story unfolds as we go through life’s challenges. The end of our story is determined by our choices to be an overcomer and side with good or evil in the world. Two to three short story/examples are shared to help bring understanding to the lesson.
~ Travel and Photo Rights are included in the price quote. Thank you for your consideration!
Creating space for smiles, ~Marcy
