Petite Princess Parties was created with one simple goal in mind, to recreate the magic we once felt when we were young children. There was nothing more magical than watching Peter Pan fly into Wendy Darling’s window, or when the Fairy Godmother, with just a magic word, changed Cinderella’s torn dress into a beautiful gown fit for a royal ball. And to be able to provide a bit of that special pixie dust at your daughter’s next party is what drives us to be the best at what we do!
We merely aren’t children’s entertainment, or people in run of the mill costumes, we are the storybooks come to life! With the help of custom designed costumes, professionally styled wigs, extensive princess training and research, and a little bit of pixie dust of course, our performers can truly become that princess straight out of your daughter’s dreams!
Petite Princess Parties not only prides itself on it’s exceptional attention to detail and quality, it also prides itself on finding the brightest stars of local theatres and universities to bring these characters to life! Each performer was hand-picked by the owner, and each performer brings their own special skill-set to the characters they play. Our performers have graced the stages of Broadway, National Tours, Cruise Lines, The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati, The Ensemble Theatre of Cincinnati, The Know Theatre, The Carnegie, The Commonwealth Theatre of KY, Northern Kentucky University, UC’s College Conservatory of Music, CYPT, The Covedale Performing Arts Center, and many more!! Your performers are scholarship students, sorority sisters, teachers, artists, and award winning members of the arts community, who want to share their talents with your little stars and their friends!
When you book with Petite Princess Parties, you are not only getting a perfectly crafted party package, you are getting the passion and hard-work of a group of young thriving artists.
