Capn’ Hook and his new first mate: the birthday boy!

You’ve sent out the message-in-a-bottle invitations, made the seaweed wraps, and organized the treasure hunt. These are all festive ways to create a pirate party theme, but how will you make your child’s party stand out from all the other parties? And how will you entertain the huge group of six-year-olds… coming over to your house?!

The best way to both entertain your wee scallywags and make your son or daughter’s party unique, is by bringing the party theme to life with a children’s character entertainer.



At Papillons Entertainment, we have cast members who are at the top of their field in children’s party entertainment, having performed at hundreds, some of them at thousands of special events and kids parties all across Los Angeles and Southern California.

Pictured here, for example, is one of our actors portraying ‘Captain Hook’. In this video of a recent party performance, you’ll hear his English accent, see the detailed costume in action, experience some of the corny jokes and witness Jr. Swashbucklers (a.k.a. children) having a funtastic time!

Along with Neverland games and perhaps dancing the jig, your Papillons pirate party performance also includes a mini magic show, background music to enhance the excitement of the activities, and swords made out of balloons (choose a Pirate Lass and she’ll transform little landlubbers with her face-painting “tattoos”).

I'm Jenna Bryson and I'm the "queen butterfly" and lead expert performer at Papillons Entertainment, a children's special event company. I've been working with children for 13+ years and still get a thrill out of making kids happy. I'm also a classically trained actor with a B.A. from Univ. Maryland (Baltimore County), a budding children's book author (see 'Grace from Outer Space'), wanna-be comedy improvisor (graduate of Upright Citizens Brigade L.A.), and actual singer-songwriter. My music has been heard in feature films, promos, and on shows such as 'Hellcats', '90210' (the new series), 'Life Unexpected', and 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians'. My debut album, 'make/believe', is available on all major internet retailers.
