Reviews from character event hosts:
I have worked with this organization for two library programs. We did a Princess storytime and meet and greet and also a super hero meet and greet and the programs were wonderful! Well attended as you can imagine given the popularity of princesses and super heroes but the people playing the characters were phenomenal and the company itself is easy to work with and I think cost-friendly. Highly recommend!

A few of the princesses visited my daycare class. The kids absolutely loved it! They did a storytime reading (which included fun interactive elements) and after gave the kids lots of time for interactions. I know the preschool kids loved it too. The princesses were completely in character the whole time, and it was nice that they had someone to accompany them and help out with the interactions. Definitely a special day for the children.

Reviews from parents:
Occasions with Character has been a delightful joy in our lives! At any event with them we see great friends and beloved favorite characters who are always kind and happy to see us.
I have been to several events similar and was blown away with how well it was done. There were so many characters and the kids really got to enjoy them. It wasn’t just take a picture and move on. They got to interact and I never felt rushed. So well done. I will definitely be doing your events again! My daughter loved it!! And the characters were 💯 on point!
It is truly like walking into a magical world where the characters come to life in their charming and warm way. They touch the children’s hearts as much as mine.

“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.”

“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!”
