One day my acting coach asked me out of the blue if I would play Cinderella at a kids party. I agreed. Not knowing how to talk to small children or how to do parties my journey began.
My 1st gig I talked to the kids like little adults. I am a mother of 2 but my children were grown. It had been some time since I had been around small children.
Next time around my agent asks if I would play Barney. For those of you who don’t know Barney is this huge purple dinosaur 🦕Living in NYC we mostly take trains everywhere. So now I’m carrying this huge costume in a garbage bag looking like a homeless person. Not as glamorous as the previous princess 👸🏼 party 🎈 but I made the best of it.
For 2 years I continued to do numerous parties with several different characters. I had so many costumes I had to dedicate an entire closet to it. Nyc apartments are small. Losing a whole close space is a lot.
I loved working with children. The smiles on their faces when they see their favorite character is priceless.
I was never formally trained how to do parties. When a complaint was received the owner would call screaming & cursing at me on the top of his lungs. Instead of explaining to me maybe do this or that next time. After a few times of his behavior I had to call it quits. I returned all his costumes & decided to go on my own.
He soon found out I was doing my own thing. His exact words “I am going to be a thorn in your side til you die” My response “Bring it On”
