We were lucky enough to book Sarah for our Membership Meeting on March 5, 2016. For our meeting, we had some very specific requirements, including a giraffe costume to be used in combination with her stilts. When we told her of our unique needs, Sarah reacted with enthusiasm and creativity. In the weeks before our event, Sarah responded to our correspondence regularly, and always communicated clearly. On the day of our event, Sarah arrived on time, fully prepared, and ready to begin. We were extremely impressed by Sarah’s giraffe costume, it was exactly what we were hoping for. Amidst our busy event, Sarah carried herself like a true professional-responding to requests from our members and staff in a kind, and helpful manner. (She posed for photo after photo with patience.) During the second phase of our event, she entertained the children of our members with an outstanding interactive variety show. She had her “box of fun” filled with toys and props that she used to entertain and play with the children while dressed as a fun clown character. The children were engrossed in her performance; not a single one could take their eyes off of her. Overall, we couldn’t have asked for a better performer to work with. Sarah exceeded every one of our expectations, and more. We would be more than happy to provide a reference for her, and would recommend her to anyone seeking a dependable performer. Thank you, Sarah!

Sarah performed/interacted as a mime for an hour at my husband's 40th birthday party. He told me all he wanted for his birthday was a mime to perform, and he absolutely loved the evening! Sarah was right on time, got ready quickly, and seamlessly started interacting with the crowd. She was adaptable, and respectful of those who may not have been as comfortable with mimes as others. Overall, we were very pleased, and plan to hire Sarah again for future events if she's available. I highly recommend her!
Sarah came in for a video shoot and was creative, great with taking direction, and very professional.
Prior to the shoot Sarah was responsive and communicated clearly and often.
During the shoot she was creative and fun and brought her ideas into the mix with the director and made it better than we envisioned.
What to Expect
When strolling as a stilt walker, clown, mime, or other character, Sarah interacts with her audiences, incorporating delightful tricks, jokes, and props, as appropriate, which can include physical comedy, juggling, magic tricks, and more.
If your event includes stage performances, Sarah can bring a hilarious, unique clown act to the show. Whether it's a slapstick umbrella act, a zany trombone comedy, or a comic rubber chicken number, Sarah can find the act that's right for you.
Sarah can bring circus, clown, and physical comedy workshops and games to your event. Children and adults alike can learn juggling, feather balancing, plate spinning, clown routines, and more.
Based in Portland, Oregon, Sarah can travel anywhere to bring professional, fun, zany entertainment to your event. Whether strolling as a stilt character; roving as a clown, mime, mask character, or event-specific character; performing a clown act; or leading games and circus workshops, Sarah is personable, hilarious and interactive.
Past clients have said things like:
"You were such a big hit!"
"Thank you for bringing the joy!"
Sarah will communicate with you personally about the nature of your event, to come up with the best style of entertainment for you - be it the jovial Purple Hatter on stilts, Gladiola the boisterous clown, the Red Bugler, or perhaps a roving French mime, a hilarious strolling chicken, a jocular pirate, a mad scientist, a cowgirl, a jungle explorer, a bouncing bunny, or ... you name it! Almost any character is possible with advance notice. She will be available by phone or email, will contact you the day before your event to confirm all the details, will arrive early to see the space and set up, and will come prepared with numerous tricks, jokes, and moves up her sleeve!
Sarah is also an experienced teacher of kids and adults, and can lead hands-on circus workshops and group games upon request!
Born and raised in New Jersey, Sarah trained in clown, mime, and physical theatre before joining a theatre company in Portland. She regularly performs around Portland, the Pacific Northwest, the USA, and the world - she's played in 31 US states and 8 countries to date!
Additional Booking Notes
If performing on stilts, a staging area/ changing room is helpful - somewhere with a table on which to sit and put on stilts, and keep extra props. If this is unavailable, I can park nearby and be based at my car.
