“YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!  YOU WERE TREMENDOUS!!  Thank you so much for helping to create a playful atmosphere today.  It’s great to take a business event and make it an “experience” for the participants, and you did just that.  Your "cousin of" persona was a lot of fun, and I thank you for working it up for me.”

Sales Adrenaline, Nautical Character Theme Event

“Wow, Julia, the show was a HUGE SUCCESS!!  Everyone just loved it!  I can’t tell you how many compliments I received on the show.  Many were pleasantly surprised at how interactive, entertaining and creative it was too.  Oh, and the acronyms that Dorothy rattled off – people are talking about that even this morning!  That was unbelievable!  Please relay this again to your crew, they truly made the event a success!”

HNTB So Cal, “Hollywood Confidential” Full Show

“THANKS!!  All I can say is you guys Rocked!!  We had such great feedback from our guests from the party this weekend.  It was fun to see them trying to figure out "who these people were" and then start enjoying it when they caught on.  I love the little mini stories we keep hearing about from different people and The Partners.  The Partners reactions were the best because they had no idea we hired you all.  Marcus and Mike can't wait to have you at our party next year!  The Timeshare Salesman was awesome and fit perfectly into our business.  His costume was perfect!  I loved to hear his "Yahoo" just randomly throughout the night.  And Virginia, she was great with the running the gifts to the prize winners.  That was priceless!!  Everyone also loved the song that you put together for us. It was so clever.  Really, everything was great and we really can't wait to work with you again.  Please send people to me if they would like a referral.  I'd be happy to tell them how great you all were.”

TG Events (Trading Places), Character Theme Event

“You two did an AWESOME job on Friday night! You met and exceeded all of my expectations! I could not believe how much you incorporated into the show about Letty's job, family, and must have done a tremendous amount of research (and impressive memorization). The entire evening was perfect, you two included! I will HIGHLY recommend you to family and friends.”

K. Sherman, “Hollywood Confidential” Mini-Show

“I thought it was great fun ... the actor's understanding of our business, acronyms, and organizational nuances as reflected in their script was outstanding ... their ability to respond with this level of "performance" on a very short notice, was superb.”

Abbott Vascular, Mini-Show

“I wanted to say how much everyone enjoyed the show.  WOW, you two did an awesome job, remembering all those engineering terms, titles etc.  I cant even remember them all, not even close.  Thank you very much for doing such a great job.  It was nice to see people that work so hard actually enjoy them selves."

Disney Engineering Dept, Mini-Show

“Our group is still talking about our evening out.  We had a wonderful time and I don't think it could have been better.  It was amazing that the two of you used all of the information that I fed you and used it perfectly.  I had told you that it was a tough group, but you managed to bring them all together.  I got several notes from people saying that was the most fun time they ever had.  I can't thank you enough and I told the whole California group that if they ever needed an event to call you.”

National Square Dance Convention, Mini-Show

“I was so impressed with the job that you and the other actors did for our closing dinner that I don't even know what to say.  I know you said you would research the organization and customize the skits, but really, I was just awed by the time you must have spent looking at who ASHRAE is and what we do.  Our group is difficult to entertain sometimes because engineers see the world with a different view but you captured their attention.  Not only did you capture them, you actually made them laugh.  Kudos for a most impressive performance and for providing an evening that our members will not forget nor one that will be surpassed for many years to come.”

ASHRAE, “Hollywood Confidential” Full Show

“ Julia and the cast were AMAZING.  They mingled with our guests before the show and then managed to quickly incorporate their names into the performance in a way that perfectly matched their personalities.  No one was embarrassed, though some wondered how the cast knew so much about them.  Although our group included a broad mix of corporate personnel and third-party suppliers, everyone felt involved and included.

The show was hilarious, and the performers were outstanding.  They also did an incredible job of customizing the Hollywood Confidential program to match our program theme, company facts and business initiatives.  One of our guests commented that this was the best entertainment that we had ever had at one of our conferences.”

Smart n' Final, “Hollywood Confidential” Full Show

“(Everything) was perfect!  It was just what we needed to break the ice, set the mood, get everyone laughing, and make the night a huge success. The girls were amazed at how much personal information the actors knew about them.  They laughed for hours.  I will definitely use you again in the future.”

Boswell High School Cheerleaders, TX,  1920s Character Theme Event.

“All of your actors, especially Miss Ruby West, were terrific and really picked up on the accounting terminology and names of our folks, which was impressive.  That added a great deal to the intimate feel of the room, and kept us giggling throughout the evening.”

Ronald Blue & Co., “The Password is Murder” Full Show

“The audience participation was the best I have ever seen!  The actors took the time to get to know their guests on a first name basis and they were so funny.  Thank you for the memories!”

Bastian Material Handling, “Alibi Aboard” Full Show

“Thank each of you for the phenomenal job that brought to life an amazing and very memorable wedding and reception!  The passion, courtesy, time, and talent you all invested in 'our night' is demonstrative of how much you all love your jobs and your undeniable talents.  Start to finish the script was great.  Truly we cannot speak highly enough about you.”                  

T&J Scott, “White Wedding Blues”

“I can't say enough to tell you how pleased I am with last night's theme event.  Your professionalism from start to finish was phenomenal.  I greatly appreciate the many hours you spent in fine-tuning the script; and working with me and my client to create a truly specialized event.”

Pacific Events, San Diego, CA, “Mission Possible” Full Show

“Everyone had a great time.  It was a wonderful way to unwind after a long day of meetings.  They especially loved the creative way you wove in the film titles.  That was an excellent idea.”
