Kids Birthday Parties in Westchester

Dress-up!  Create Original Characters!  Be Silly!

Dress-up! Create Original Characters! Be Silly!

Kids ages 3-13 are guided through fun theater games where they can stretch their “imagination muscles” while playing and performing.

After arriving at your home or chosen location, I start the group off with warm-up games, including a name game so I get to know everyone quickly. Then,we play a few age-appropriate theater games like “Human Machine” and “Zig-Zag-Zog.” Finally, the kids perform an “actable” tale or an original story based on characters the kids create – complete with dress-up and props.

Everyone receives a star sticker for performing. Of course the birthday child is always the STAR!

What people are saying:

“Thank you for the great acting party! I loved it and so did my friends!” – Madeline, age 7, Hastings-on-Hudson, NY

 

“Ellen – You were a huge hit!  Kate and her friends had a great time!  And many parents came up to me and commented how you did a fantastic time keeping the kids engaged and having fun for such a great stretch of time. We’ll be sure to share any photos that capture yesterday’s fun.  Thank you so much for helping make Kate’s party a memorable one. ” – Julie Kehoe, Katonah, NY

“Thank you so much for making Emily’s 5th Birthday such a huge success. When I asked her how she liked it she said, “it was GREAT” with such enthusiasm I wish you could have heard. Truly the best compliment (and what every parent wants to hear as well). I was very impressed how engaged the kids were the whole time. It was original and entertaining. Thanks again, and I look forward to more parties together”. – Randi Odesser, Hastings-on-Hudson, NY

 

“Ellen Flaks is a wonderful party hostess…Not only was the drama party a blast for the kids, both male and female, it was fun for the adults too. The genius of Ellen is that she is able to quickly draw kids into a fun fantasy world, while still being in control, but not overbearing. She made it look easy. However, don’t be fooled. It is a skill that requires finesse and practice to master. Also, she was prompt, professional, and of course, courteous. I was so grateful for her services and would highly recommend her!” – Jen Cadenhead, Dobbs Ferry, NY

 

“I just wanted to say thank you for coming to my Valentine’s Day party. You were the Masterpiece of the whole party. I loved it when you came to my party. You were ‘before the cake’ – that means I liked you more than the cake!” – Jamie, age 8, Dobbs Ferry, NY

 

“The kids really enjoyed dressing up and putting on “Hot, Cold, and Delicious”. They are still talking about it and I have received several phone calls from friends asking me where in the world I found you? Thanks again.”  Dana G.
