Today is rough.
Just because my business is built on magic and fairy stories does not mean that it is any less a hard job. If anything, it makes it that much harder.
If you work in entertainment you know that those who hire you or watch you are constantly judging you because that determines your success and if you will continue to work.
This morning I felt like I was sucker punched in the gut. I have bent over backwards for many families and organizations to bring characters to life and magic to this city.
My cast and I works TIRELESSLY to prepare costumes, accessories, songs, scripts, back stories, improv techniques and more for even the shortest appearance.
What’s frustrating is that almost six years later, many do not see that they are receiving QUALITY when booking with us.
We have competition. Many of my friends across the country that do this also have competition. I’m not the only one...I know this.
I also know that I’m not the only one who has paid out of pocket for so much. I can’t get a loan. I work full time on top of my business. I keep my cast small because juggling too many schedules is impossible.
I - and my cast have sacrificed so much. My parents and my best friend have invested so much along with me.
Why do I share this? Quality is vital. Do your research. Also, this isn’t dress up. This isn’t cosplay. This is a real job - acting, singing, dancing, teaching and more.
Respect the fact that this is takes so much work and that when you book with us (I can’t speak for anyone else), you are getting the best for the price we charge.
Today is hard.
Business is hard.
Sometimes I want to give up.
But I will NEVER sacrifice quality.
