Whitney Reid – Owner

Whitney is a born-and-raised Richmonder who is living her dream!  She graduated from James Madison University with a degree in Theatre Performance, and headed straight for Disney where she received extensive character and improvisational training while working as a performer in the Magic Kingdom!  She has been performing as a princess for over five years. In addition to portraying a number of different princesses, she is in charge of all social media, marketing, community outreach, and performer training.  She is a wife, a mom to the sweetest baby boy, and an eternal toe-stubber.  Be advised – as a princess she is sugary sweet, but you’ll find she is much more of a sassy spitfire when the wigs come off! Though she and Princess Anna could be adork-able twins, her favorite princess is Rapunzel; but she will always have a soft spot in her heart for Cinderella – I mean, who can resist a gorgeous ballgown and a grand entrance?

Caroline

Caroline is a senior in high school who has been singing and dancing since she was 3, and acting since she was 5! Currently at her high school, she is a Cohead for her acapella group and a member of the other two chorale groups.

She has performed in every school theater opportunity since elementary school, as well as several community theater shows. She has attended summer musical theater intensives at Christopher Newport University, New York University, and Syracuse University. She will be auditioning for numerous college musical theatre programs in the next year and will be pursuing musical theatre as a career! In addition to performing, she has always loved babysitting and being around children. This job is perfect because she gets to mix her three favorite things, performing, children, and Disney!
