“The princesses are delightfully entertaining with their authentic costumes and friendly smiles.”

-Marilyn Laulainen, Waconia ECFE

“Occasions with Character offered library visitors a magical performance with lots of audience participation for even the youngest. The actors posed for photographs and stayed in character until the last child left the room.”

-Angela Petrie, Stillwater Public Library

“The Occasions with Character performers were all amazing, and the way that they interact with the children is superb! The interactive storytime was great for promoting literacy and a perfect additional program to draw people to the library.”

-Carol Plocher, Library Services Coordinator, Great River Regional Library-Delano

“The program itself was an elegant touch of fantasy for the whole audience, and the interaction with the audience was priceless.”

-Mary Davis, Youth Services, Hudson Area Public Library

“I can not thank Occasions with Character enough for surprising my daughter on her birthday at lunch! Not every little girl can say that she had her favorite princess/heroine dance with her, read a story with her and sing happy birthday to her. She was in awe the entire time. As her mom it almost brought me to tears seeing how mesmerized she was… She still talks about her. Thank you for making my daughter feel so special and lucky on her birthday. She will remember this for years to come.”

– Rochelle Ladick, parent

“Occasions With Character presented the Midnight Ball Princess (Lost Slipper Storytime) at our Storytime and it was a great hit! The performers remained in character from the moment they entered and the costumes were wonderful. The audience was enchanted and everyone had a great time!”

– Janet Waller, Community Business Development Manager, Barnes & Noble HarMar Mall
