About

History

Upon A Dream was founded in September of 2014 by Janae Trotter, a girl who has been playing princess since she could walk and talk, and teaching theatre and dance since she was in high school.  Since then we have grown from two princesses to nine, and are continuing to grow as princess demand increases.

After working with Janae for over a year, Madeline Clem became the new owner of Upon a Dream in June of 2018. With a Bachelor of Arts in Music and Theatre, Madeline’s passion is lifting characters off the storybook pages and bringing them to life! Madeline has moved to Las Vegas to pursue her dreams with her husband. 

In November of  2020, Kourteney Halksworth took over Upon A Dream and currently owns this flourishing business! She has a fierce love for children and the magic they possess. 

All of the princess performers at Upon A Dream are hand-picked to provide not only a fun event for your child, but also to uphold integrity in everything they do. If there’s one thing we love most, it’s seeing the faces of each child when their favorite princess shows up at their door, ready to play!

Our Parties

We believe that parties should be fun for the kids AND adults, so for the duration that the princess is there, parents can feel free to sit back and just enjoy the fun.  We bring music, games, and provide options of princess face painting and party favors. Guests will learn from the professionals how to be a prince or princess, take photos with the princess, dance and sing to their favorite songs, and play games based on imagination and fun. Our character line up is achieved with the highest quality wigs and costumes available in our industry. Our costumes are custom made to fit to our princess performers and upgraded regularly for the most authentic appearance possible. Our performers go through regular training sessions to be as “in-the-know” as possible with their characters. From the perfectly styled wigs and makeup, to character inspired poses, from emulating the character’s mannerisms, to singing and speaking like them, not one detail is overlooked. Our performers spend hours in and out of work learning to perfect their performance in an effort to truly bring the magic to you!
