Here is your opportunity to meet the key members of the team at The Children's Party Company. We also have many more party leaders who come from very varied backgrounds - some you will find appearing in the West End and in your favourite TV programmes, some have degrees and 'proper jobs', but most of them are just big kids that still haven't grown up.
I have been working in musical theatre from a young age in national tours and the West End so have always loved performing. My love of children's theatre and children's entertaining came from working as a performer on Disney Cruise Lines in America. I was lucky enough to spend a year playing various Disney characters in the onboard theatre. I loved the magic that Disney created and seeing how much the children enjoyed being in the world of their imagination. I decided to carry on working in this field on my return to the UK and spent four years as a teacher of drama and a children's party leader. The Children's Party Company was formed from the desire to create new, exciting and innovative parties for children both big and small. It's also great to call getting dressed up and playing games all day a 'job'!
Torie started her career as a Redcoat in Butlins. It was here that she ran the 6-17 yrs 'stage school', for aspiring singers/dancers/performers which would then put on a show on the main stage each week. Her time at Butlins was documented in a series for ITV, which followed Torie and two collegues for a 'fly-on-the-wall' style programme that is still being aired on Sky Travel. After Butlins she was part of a show team which worked out in the Middle East for a summer performing such shows as Ali Baba, Jungle Book, Pinocchio and Beauty and the Beast, where she played the part of Belle. She still loves playing the part of Belle and other princesses for The Children's Party Company.
