MORE ABOUT US

WHAT MAKES OUR COMPANY SO SPECIAL!

A Child's Dream Entertainment was founded in May 2010 by Charlotte Shipley Valdez, A long time Theater Major and Performer. After moving to Los Angeles to pursue theater Charlotte decided to follow her real dreams of being an Elementary School Teacher. She now teaches 3rd Grade in Mesa, AZ . She is married to her prince charming and has a new baby boy. 

Making Dreams Come True since 2010

We were the 1st Company in Arizona!!  Beginning in May 2010, our Business was started to help students get through College.  Charlotte, the owner wanted to use her Theatre background to help pay her way through school.  Charlotte's Mom wanted to be involved and has loved to sew her whole life and so she started making the costumes.  We became a Family Business.  Many of Charlotte's friends, who were in Theatre with her were amazing talents and made a great cast and most of our cast members have been with us for many years!  We decided to operate as non-profit because we wanted to help other students get through school too!  It became a family business with Charlotte's Father, a Retired Firefighter building sets and helping set ups for big events and building special things we needed.  WE LOVE WHAT WE DO and our CAST IS OUR FAMILY TOO!! 

We are the BEST of the BEST!

DARYA M., TEMPE AZ 2/12/2019

We hired Elsa and Anna for my daughters' 4th birthday and it was an event to remember for every child (and parent) who attended. They were bright and cheerful and fully in character :) Very professional and great with kids. My daughter was absolutely starstruck when they began to sing and I literally had goosebumps. They were amazing!! I am so grateful I chose A Child's Dream Entertainment, and you will be too!


LAUREN C., PRESCOTT, AZ 2/2/2019

Layna/Rapunzel made my daughter's birthday so special. It made my job, as the host, very easy. She came very prepared, and ready to entertain. I received lots of compliments from parents in appreciation of having an hour to sit and relax with other parents while Rapunzel entertained the kiddos. 

From the children's perspective, Rapunzel was very captivating. The kids enjoyed dancing and hearing Rapunzel sing. While she gave attention to all the children, she especially gave focus to the birthday girl when she could. One of our favorite parts was when Rapunzel led the singing of "Happy Birthday." 

We would absolutely recommend this company and would use them again if my daughter's interest remains on princesses in the future.


DUSTIN C. PEORIA, AZ  1/21/2019

We hired A Child's Dream Entertainment for our twin daughters' birthday party and everything turned out great and better than we expected. Anna and Elsa were great and the kids at the party loved all the activities. The company is extremely professional and friendly, and goes out of their way to make sure everything goes well. Would definitely hire again in the future!


LILY R. PHOENIX, AZ 12/3/2018

Wish I could give 10 Starts! Firstly I would like to say I am in no way affiliated with this company.  I found them online searching for a princess for my Daughter's 6th Birthday Party.  

Charlotte as Sleeping Beauty was absolutely Magical!  This made our party! I cannot even described how engaging and magical She was.  She stayed in character the entire time, answering the girls Many questions, signing, dancing, bringing a craft which the girls LOVED.  Doing their make up.  It was the epitome of a perfect touch to a girls first sleepover.  We will not soon forget this magical night!  We would highly recommend.  Our daughter felt so special during the coronation and all the girls felt included in everything. We had 10 for a sleepover so I (mom) was super overwhelmed and I couldn't be more grateful for the Princess coming (15 min early) and engaging all the little princesses for the whole time.  Thank you so much!
