"A very VERY special thank-you to our "Actor" and Andi. Both were exceptionally professional and Andi, especially, went above/beyond -- I didn't realize how much I'd need her assistance and she jumped in so willingly. Both of them really represented you guys so well. We'll certainly be calling you again if/when we ever need more character help. Y'all run a great show and we're thrilled to have you as a resource!"
“The event would not have been a success without the participation of you and your team. I look forward to working with you again soon!”
“I would like to thank you and your actors for giving my son the best birthday ever! OMG I can not express my appreciation. When the kids saw the characters come out and perform, They were blown away! The actors were so professional and worked very well with the children.”
"On very short notice Characters for hire provided awesome entertainment for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. People can’t stop talking about the great entertainment!!! Thanks NICK!!"
"These guys did a great job. Costumes were excellent, the actors stayed in character throughout and they were great with kids. Would hire again. Communication and confirmation prior to event were top notch as well."
"I just wanted to thank you very much for all your help and support with Max’s Birthday party on Saturday. We greatly appreciate how accommodating and professional your entire staff was. I must say that everyone was very impressed with just how fabulous the show was. You guys did an amazing job and Max was very happy!"
"Hi, guys! (I'll be collective to the team [grin]) -- I just wanted to thank everyone for helping us rock our event -- hate to be all cheesy but there's no better way to explain it -- Your character was the HIT of the party (hah. party.) and my husband and his team made so many new contacts because of him -- WELL worth all the planning!!!"
"The guys at Characters For Hire were amazing! We hired the characters for my sons 5th birthday party. The training was a huge hit! And all the guys were wonderful with taking photos with the children and making sure that no one was afraid lol. The costumes they use and the sabers all top notch! Characters for hire are worth the money tenfold, for priceless memories the kids (and myself) will have for a lifetime!!!!!! Thanks guys!!!!!"
"Hired Characters for Hire for my daughters 5th Birthday and boy was she excited! Character was great with the kids and all had a great time! Would recommend this company in a heartbeat!"
"Characters for Hire did an amazing experience for my son's birthday. They were very personable and the costumes were excellent. Could be better versed in the storyline but not everyone is a fanatic. The actors were professional and I would hire again for another event should the occasion arise."
"Hired characters to come to my son's 5th birthday party. The kids loved it and made it a memorable experience. He battled them and then they all took turns taking photos with him. It wasn't cheap by any means but in my opinion it was worth the cost. Definitely a great alternative to the magician/clown options out there for kids entertainment."
"Just a quick "thank you" for helping arrange a character to come to my Dad's 60th surprise party this past weekend. It was a huge hit, and my Dad had a BLAST. The actor in costume was hilarious - speaking "funny" with everyone, dancing, giving hugs, posing for pictures, picking up my Dad in a bear hug and bowing to my puppy, who was dressed as a Princess! If we ever need another character for any party or occasion, you'll be the first we call! I'm happy to write a letter of recommendation or website testimonial, whatever you need! Thanks again so much - it was a huge hit and everyone loved it!!"
"I decided to hire 4 characters from Characters for Hire for my son's 5th birthday. The children were all fully engaged for the full hour of training as well as the combat scene at the end. I was extremely pleased with the level of professionalism from all of the actors and the authenticity of the costumes, mannerisms, and voice sound alike from every character. This was a party that the children and parents will be talking about for a very long time. It was worth every penny and more!!! Thank you Nick! You are doing an amazing job and I truly appreciate the time you always set aside for the many, many hours of phone calls and emails with me to make sure everything was the way I wanted it! You went above and beyond and I highly recommend this company and the professional actors that work for you!"
Our performers are fully interactive and never break character. Their creepy presence will add an extra touch of terror that will make your party truly memorable. Zombies, Mummies, werewolves, hunchbacks, ghouls, goblins, ogres, orcs, and some monsters will roam and keep guests titillated for the entirety of your party.
But there is more to creating a truly frightening atmosphere than simply having characters wandering around. Their appearances and disappearances will be part of a carefully choreographed interactive theatrical experience in which your guest will find themselves witness to progressively scarier and more bizarre tableaux from famous moments of horror from history and the movies. This shall lead to a mad climax in which these characters attempt to break free from the doom as and fates which they are forced to enact every year at Halloween. But the wheels of fate do not turn easily, and the horror that is their lives will prove to be truly inescapable!
- Professional actors with fright experience
