A Little History…
Once Upon an Occasion was founded by Gina Korte and Caitlin Brand in 2014. The two have a long history of performance experience, and started the company in hopes to fulfill that passion. Gina came to Caitlin with the idea and the pair began to compile a business plan. After multiple meetings and discussions Caitlin and Gina were finally ready to make their dream a reality. With a dream, a couple hundred dollars, and a plan, it all began. With only two characters (The Winter Sisters), Once Upon an Occasion opened for business in November 2014.
Since then, the company has grown immensely. With 18 characters and 7 professional performers on staff, Once Upon a Occasion is equipped to perform at events of all forms and sizes!
