Fairytales Entertainment is a boutique company that provides the most enchanting and engaging character experiences in the greater Los Angeles area.
Devotion to character integrity is the core of every one of our performances, because we believe attention to details is what keeps the magic alive in those young and young at hear. Our performers carefully study each princess's voice, mannerisms, and story to ensure their authentic portrayal. Our princesses will have even grown-ups believing she's stepped right out of a fairytale!
A great performance is nothing without the perfect dress! And we at FTE pride ourselves on the quality of our costumes and wigs. Each of our gowns is lovingly crafted by our in-house costume designer, and every fabric, trim, and detail are chosen to reflect what children imagine their favorite princess would wear! Our costumes and wigs are impeccably cared for - they are washed, repaired and steamed weekly to ensure we look 'princess party perfect' at every event!
Our party curriculum is specific to your parties age group, and we offer a variety of games and activities so that the children are always active and engaged. Activities also vary with each character, making every party unique. Whether the children are playing hide-and-seek with Rapunzel, learning a royal waltz with Cinderella or participating in our incredible and interactive storytelling with Belle, your child and her royal guests will always be having fun!
Most important is our passion for working with children. Our performers' years of experience in children's entertainment ensures that we are ready for anything a party may throw at us! And more importantly, we encourage every child we meet to use their imagination, creativity, kindness and courage to become real princes and princesses.
We can't wait to step out of our fairytale books to create magical memories and enchanting experiences that you and your family will remember for years to come!
Founder Morgan Gannes started working with children when she was 15, nannying for many wonderful families. She’d always dreamed of being a princess, but only in the way of fairy tales, never as something she might actually be able to do. But one day, one of the little girls Morgan nannied was about to turn three, and her mother asked Morgan to come to her daughter’s birthday party dressed as Sleeping Beauty.
Wanting to create the most magical experience possible, Morgan dove into the role, studying up on the character, learning to imitate her voice, and designing all kinds of Sleeping Beauty–themed games and activities. But when it came time to buy a costume, Morgan realized none of the dresses she could find were realistic enough that children would believe she was truly a princess. So…
She taught herself to sew. Hunched over her mother’s sewing machine, she stitched and restitched until finally she had a dress she knew would dazzle the young girl, and just in time for her birthday.
The party was a success, and after seeing the immense joy she brought to the children, she knew this was her calling. Her lifelong love of fairytales, years of childcare experience, and new-found love of sewing led her to create Fairytales Entertainment, where she could continue to bring fairytales to life and make magical memories for families all throughout Los Angeles.
Fourteen years later, FTE has grown, adding additional, incredibly talented performers and providing even more characters than ever. As for Morgan, she now works as a Costume Designer for film and television, but even still, she continues to run FTE, hand-sewing every single costume herself. With each performance, Morgan remembers why she does this: to help children experience the magic of fairy tales, and to show everyone young and old believe that dreams come true.
