We were thrilled to have the Pair of Pirates work with us during our world premiere launch of our production, TREASURE ISLAND Reimagined! Our children (ranging from 4 to 15) loved them and the big kids (adults) loved them as well. It was also awesome to have the custom ship that Jack built on hand for audience members to climb aboard and to pose for pictures. The Pair taught pirate games such as walk the plank and pirate says as well as cool pirate sing-a-longs. Plus, their costumes are fabulous. Everyone had a blast. Two thumbs up, for sure!
Response from Pair of Pirates:
Thank you so much, Sandra! It was a pleasure working with everyone at the Dallas Children's Theater. and an honor to be a part of the promotion and opening weekend of TREASURE ISLAND Reimagined.
Given all the glowing reviews on Pair of Pirates, our expectations were already high for the event. We bring in several people/companies each year for corporate entertainment. This was by far one of our favorite events and employees are still talking about how much fun they had. Once Jack Sparrow finished the main birthday event (which involved everyone in the room and was an absolute hit), he then went around the building and had charming/funny/creative conversations with everyone and each person has the pictures to prove it and show their families. He utilizes all the props masterfully and comes up with new ideas along the way. I don’t think anyone stopped laughing or smiling once he entered the room.
It is evident from the first time that you contact Pair of Pirates that they love what they do. The communication is first rate, the event was one of our best and we’ll definitely want to see them again.
Response from Pair of Pirates:
Thanks for the very kind words. CJS
I am always on a mission to find a jewel to create memories in our children's ministry at our church. The Pair of Pirates was truly a found gem! Our month's theme was "Pirates" and I wanted to find a "surprise" for the children....and Captain Jack Sparrow and Elizabeth Swan were beyond my expectations.
The e-mails, phone calls, and texts made it simple to know the night with the Pirates were in good and dependable hands! I was impressed with the communication. Captain Sparrow assured me that I could rely on their preparations for games and other activities. I could relax and enjoy the evening!
The children followed Captain Sparrow around and were entranced by his forthrightness and well, just being Captain Sparrow! He was willing to listen and answer the children's questions as well as being patient with the many pictures taken by teens and parents. Elizabeth Swan is a lovely pirate and a truly a cheerleader for Captain Sparrow. The younger children were drawn to her and her sweet nature made the younger children feel safe.
I wish we had more time with Captain Sparrow and with Elizabeth Swan, I am confident that we will be contacting the Pair of Pirates again.
Thank you for creating a memory within the children's lives, they had a wonderful time and the conversation will be happening for a while about their time with Captain Jack Sparrow and Elizabeth Swan!
They seem to love what they do -- this is apparent in the effort they put into presenting their characters flawlessly! Thank you for messaging back and forth to get the "ideas" pinned down and being open to trying something new. Our party would not have been the same without you both there to help liven things up :)
Response from Pair of Pirates:
Thank you so much for the review and the kind words! It truly means a lot to us. Until next time...
So we were actually unable to book Capt. Jack Sparrow to come to my sons 4th birthday party. However, He and Elizabeth (Swan) were able to record a personalized video for my son! In addition to that, they also sent him a pirate certificate that I was to present him with when he watched the video! Ms. Elizabeth was so pleasant to talk to and was great at communicating with me! I am so thankful that they could make my sons day so special! Would highly recommend them!
We hired Cat Sparrow and Elizabeth Swan for a 4 year old's birthday party May 21st in Frisco. About 15 kids attending. They were quite detailed in their preparations prior to the party date and had some great ideas to help make the party better with pirate entertainment. We have a large yard with chickens and a big dog - they took everything in stride. Great acting/role playing - they fit into their characters with expertise. Beyond that they were skilled party entertainers. It was more than I expected and well worth the money.
What a wonderful experience we had with Capt Jack Sparrow and his mate Elizabeth Swann. Our crowd was captivated, the surprise party for my friend Cathy's 60th Birthday was a success mostly due to the Pair of Pirates. Great fun for the young and young at heart.
I was involved in planning a fundraiser event with a pirate theme. I contacted Pair of Pirates and from our first conversation I knew this was going to be great. They showed up in character and both were very engaging throughout the entire 5 hour event. Thanks guys for an exceptional experience at Diva Cup 2015!!
They went above and beyond! Incredibly professional, very talented, and communicated very well. Would definitely hire again!
A truly dedicated, entertaining and professional couple, who can bring joy to any age group. These people bring more than just a simulation of star power, they are the stars. Hilarious and rapier witted they entertain young and old with their embodiment of the essence of movie pirates.
My daughter begged for Captain Jack and Elizabeth to come to her 11th birthday party and I could not be more pleased with the experience they delivered. I was curious how Captain Jack and Elizabeth would entertain a bunch of pre-teen girls. Let's just say, they are well-equipped to handle any crowd! They made my daughter first-mate, let everyone dress as pirates, orchestrated creative games for the older age group, taught them how to sword fight, and kept everyone engaged the entire time. By then end, when the real sword fight took place, the kids stood in amazement at their performance.
The Pair of Pirates worked so well together, implementing a scripted experience from beginning to end. They truly shined in their performance. They were not swayed by anything the kids could throw at them. They battled hard questions, entertained curiosities, and never skipped a beat in their act. I can tell how much time, thought, work and energy went into preparing for this specific party. I am very grateful for the effort put forth.
Their authenticity? Unmatched! Everything was delivered completely in character. After the party, I saw a Facebook status of, “I saw Jack Sparrow today!” from someone in my hometown. They took pictures with the children that the parents loved and everyone was smiling the entire time. I cannot stress enough how awesome and wonderful the Pair of Pirates are! They helped create a wonderful experience and a lifetime memory for my daughter.
Please book them if you have a chance. You won’t regret it!
I attended a birthday party for two 5 year old boys this past weekend (April, 13th 2013) in which Captain Fred "Jack" Sparrow and Elizabeth Nightly were hired to entertain the children.
I can not even begin to describe how thrilled we all were with the experience! I have attended numerous other parties in which the entertainers charged an astronomical amount of money for 30 mins to an hour of their time for a mediocre show.
This was not the case for Capt Fred and Elizabeth. They arrived early for the party and were one of the last to leave. The kids constantly had something fun to do and it was just as fun to watch.
You will think you literally invited two real pirates to your party or event. Captain Fred impersonates Captain Jack like a seasoned professional. It was just like watching Johnny Depp in the movie!
Not only are they both amazing at what they do. They also truly care about your party and its guests.
I had a fun and interesting conversation with both of them before they left and its obvious that they have poured their hearts and souls into this. I wanted to do it too!
I can not say enough wonderful things about these two people and how authentic they look and sound to what we would think a real life pirate would be like.
I'm 25 years old and am even highly considering hiring them for my own event!
Seriously, don't think about it. Comtact them NOW! You will not regret it for a moment and they are worth every penny and more! The memories you and/or your child will have are priceless! Capt Fred and Elizabeth will make any party an instant hit!
Thank you again Matey's! Hope to see you both again soon!
They even told us that the best compliment they received was the boys inviting them back over later to play. Now, how cool is that? What wonderful people!
We hired Pair of Pirates for our son's 6th birthday party. The kids were so excited and very hyper but as soon as the pirates started games, they were quiet and very interested. In the beginning, the pirates gave each child a pirate stamp and a birthday pin. Then each child got a bandana
To Put on their head. That was really neat!! Kids felt like pirates now! It did get very very hot during the map
Game and the intro. My suggestion, if it's really hot, start the party inside and move out when it's time to do the sword fights. Even the ball
Toss can be done inside with a large entryway or den! When we did the treasure hunt was when the kids were very excited!! They loved the sword fight show and the balloon swords was a perfect ending!! The only suggestions I Would make is for the pirates to speak
MUCH LOUDER!! Hard to hear if any single person was chatting! And the pirates need to be a lot more animated and excited for little kids! Important to be silly and excited for young children to get into the party mode when it's 100 degrees outside! I know the Pirates want to
Seem authentic but important to
Be animated and say lots of "Argh!!!!"
And "Shiver me Timbers" to keep
The kids excited!! It was a great value--the kids each got a bandana, a birthday Pirate pin, gold coins as prizes for games and a balloon sword! We thought the party was perfect! And the show was the perfect length--1 1/2 hours. Never felt rushed and I was glad about that!! We will Definitely recommend "Pair of Pirates" to
Anyone looking for a different party that no ones done!
We all remember those special times in our childhood. Those times that you remember so strongly, that you remember other times of your life as before this time or after this time.
That’s how my Grandson, Aidan, will remember his sixth birthday in June, 2012.
You see, two of his favorite characters came to visit him that day. It was like they came right through the Blue-Ray DVD player to their front door. High Definition turned into Live Definition and the party began. Captain Jack Sparrow and Elizabeth have arrived!
Yo Ho Ho and some Birthday Cake!
The kids were transformed into pirates themselves and Aidan became the first mate!
There were games, sword fights and a treasure hunt.
The kids kept moving from one adventure to the next, still amazed that Captain Sparrow and Elizabeth were spending time with them. He wasn’t pretend, he was real! From his boots to his sword, his compass, his hat and even his motions, He was Captain Sparrow and she was Elizabeth, no doubt!
That was 2 months ago, and every time I see him, he talks about the party. Every time we play the Pirates of the Caribbean movie, he talks about the party. Every time I call, “Granddad! Have you seen Captain Sparrow lately or Elizabeth?” Every time he sees a pirate flag, he talks about the treasure hunt.
I have no doubt that someday when he is watching the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies with his own grandkids; he will bring out the old pictures and brag about how he knew the captain personally! How they found TREASURE together!
There are many presents a Granddad can give his grandchild. The Best of the Best is A Memory.
Dear Captain Jack Sparrow and Elizabeth,
Thanks for the Memories!
The great Captain and Elizabeth made a surprise visit to my sons birthday party in April of 2012 which was filled with special needs kids from his class, and family members of all ages. Picture 5 is from our party. When the sword fight broke out with the captain and my grandsons every head turned. There wasn't a sole in the room that didn't watch, smile, giggle or laugh outright. The pair left a lasting memory with my guests that the class mates are still talking about now that school is back in. The team is spontaneous and courteous! We had a pinata outside and my neighbor was on the phone. He said that he froze in conversation and then stated in disbelief to whomever he was speaking to.... "Jack Sparrow is in the yard behind my apt." That is testament enough to the accuracy of the mannerisms of the impersonation. Definitely highly recommended!
