About Us

Behind the Scenes at Occasions with Character:

Mother-daughter team Linda and Melissa (also now a mother) created Occasions with Character LLC to spread smiles and joy to the young and young-at-heart. Both Twin Cities natives, they enjoy putting University of Minnesota degrees in Child Psychology, Music Education and Performance, and English to work creating heartwarming storytimes and events with entertainment, educational, and inspirational value.

A background in theater and costuming allows them to provide one-of-a-kind, top-quality garments (each lovingly created over dozens or sometimes hundreds of hours) for many of their character friends. An enthusiastic and talented cast completes the picture, all dedicated to providing as many magical memories as they can.

Our cast thanks you for inviting us to be a part of your occasion!
