A face character (or character actor) is a performer in a costume with minimal restrictions whose face is exposed and can therefore speak and interact freely with guests. Examples of face characters are princesses, most super heroes, and TV show or movie characters. To portray a face character, you must closely resemble the character, embody their personality, and thoroughly know their story. These roles require extensive studying of the character during your personal time. Face characters typically perform live renditions of their songs, apply makeup, face paint or temporary tattoos, host games, dance, and make speeches. Performers must apply their own makeup and put their hair in wig caps. We require performers to wear special undergarments that must be purchased at the performer's expense. Performers must also assemble their own party supply bag (list of items to be provided). The company will provide all wigs, costumes, accessories, special party props, and music equipment. Most performers will provide their own character shoes and some may use their own personal costumes with management's approval. The training for this role is conducted intermittently during the first three months of a performer's employment during a minimum 90-day probationary period. Trainings are paid and include character development workshops, voice coaching, and other tutorials. The performer must also participate in a required photoshoot and one voluntary event during this probationary period to complete the requirements before advancing into a permanent position with the company.
