The two actors who came to Jonah’s party today COMPLETELY made his day—he had such a blast, they were hilarious and amazing with the kids… he was talking about them all day long, and has been practicing his force moves ever since. They could not have done a better job and the other parents were totally charmed.
Just wanted to thank you for your help with coordinating what turned out to be an awesome and fun filled birthday party for our son Joaquin. Luke and Darth were a hit. Joaquin couldn't stop talking about his birthday party. Cant express in words how grateful and impressed we were with your guys. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Hi! Thank you very much for sending Luke Skywalker and Obi-wan Kenobi our way this past Saturday! They did an awesome job!
Just wanted to let you know that the guys that came to the party were fantastic and I couldn't have asked for it to be better. My sister already plans to call you for her next two birthday parties. :) All the kids had so much fun!
The Ninja Turtles were amazing. As always , they were awesome. They even sounded like teenagers. They were a hit.
My son was in heaven! The cast of avengers were great!! Thank you for another great party!
I just wanted to tell you that my son’s party was amazing. The kids were thoroughly entertained and the characters you had were exceptional - especially han solo. They really kept the kids engrossed the entire time we were there. Thank you again for your help!
Thank you for making my son's birthday so fun. I am really pleased with Garmadon Lloyd and Cole!
First I want to say, THANK YOU SO, SO MUCH!!! My son had the best time imaginable! Your guys were excellent! I cannot thank you enough. The entrance was brilliant, the interaction was perfect. The show was spectacular. Every parent commented on how well your team did. Really amazing and very impressive. Thanks again. I would recommend your company in a heartbeat!
My sincere gratitude.
Oliver’s birthday party was a success - your Jedi Team was simply phenomenal. I have never seen a group of young kids so riveted by something that is not in digital format! Quite a testament to your team’s ability to bring engaging story, physical participation, humor, and believability, all in very coordinated and well-executed fashion. Superb job. Thanks for making me look like Supermom.
Thanks so much for sending the people you did on Friday! The kids had a fantastic time.
Just wanted to send a quick thank you...the guys you sent to be Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader at my son's birthday party yesterday were so fabulous. The kids were overjoyed and even the parents loved the show. Many of them came up to me and said it was the best Jedi show they'd seen! Darth Vader was so funny - he had all of us in stitches! It really made Henry's birthday party a great day. Thank you!!
The party was a success and made even more so by your wonderful Captain America and Wonder Woman. They kept the kids entertained and enthralled for the entire hour they were there. After they left, he said this was the best birthday EVER.
I'd just like to thank you for planning such a wonderful event for Miranda's birthday. We had a wonderful time!
For my Star Wars obsessed little boy, Luke and Vader that came to Beckett's party could not have been more perfect! They were funny, entertaining and professional. But most importantly, they managed to keep fifteen 5 year-olds (and a couple 10 year-old big sisters) engaged! Thank you so much!!!
Nickie (Beckett's mom)
A quick note to thank you for sending the perfect Indiana Jones and Marian to our party on Saturday.
They were really top notch, entertaining and very good at keeping the kids engaged.
Much thanks! Will highly recommend to all who ask.
Best, Francesca Galesi
Just wanted to pass along our thanks for another great party!!

The party went great yesterday. Thanks for everything!
I just wanted to thank you so much for an awesome party. My son had a blast. He said he wants his party there next year too! Also I wanted to send a big thanks to batman and robin. They were incredible.
Our son (and sibs) had a GREAT time with your performers. The other parents loved it. A little girl dressed as a butterfly fairy faced down Darth Vader with light sabers; it was great. Thank you!
I just wanted to say thank you guys so much for providing our son with such an amazing birthday experience. Luke Skywalker & Darth Vader were super entertaining. Both kids & parents loved it! It was an amazing day that he will always remember. Thank you!!
Juliette and her friends had a great time last Saturday at Swordplay for her Peter Pan birthday party. Captain Hook and Peter Pan were really awesome.
Thank you so much to Darth Maul and Luke Skywalker for making my son Austin's 4th Birthday extremely special on Saturday! Everyone is still talking about it! : )
Couldn't have gone better for my son's 5th superhero birthday at Action Events L.A. The entire experience completely freaked him out...in the best way possible. Thanks, guys. We had high expectations, and you somehow managed to exceed them.
"I just wanted to thank you for all your help coordinating the Ninjago Ninja's for Cooper's party yesterday. I am getting texts and emails from parents saying it was one of the best parties ever!
Your Ninja's were so awesome with the kids. They were funny, engaging, really such great characters and beyond all, so good with the children. Thank you so much and please tell them we LOVED them!
"They did an amazing job! Awesome Ninjago party with Kai and Bonszai. The kids loved it!"
OMG. We had a wonderful time. The two guys were really fabulous. The kids were completely entertained (and the parents too)!
Team Avatar rocked “Zarek Nation” for Zarek’s 5th birthday and they had a blast!.. Thank you for employing such high energy actors who are superb with the kids and didn’t skip a beat!
Best, Jodi Fung
The kids had the most amazing time thanks to the power rangers. I can't begin to tell you how awesome they all were.... it'll definitely be very hard to top this one! The adults were just as impressed as the kids and I've already referred you to many of my friends... Thank you for being so helpful and accommodating and thank the power rangers for an amazing performance!!!
I jst wanted to let you know that the party was great! All of the boys had a fantastic time and Kai and Sensei Wu were unbelievable!! They had the kids in stitches. I've gotten a lot of positive feedback from parents as well. Thanks so much! We'll definitely be sending the boys there this summer for Jedi training camp.
Wow, the kids had a total blast with "Katniss & Peeta"! Absolutely an awesome birthday party! The odds were definitely in our favor weather-wise too!
Thanks so much,
AMAZING!! Truly memorable. Well acted/ rehearsed/ performed and we've had nothing but a storm of complements from all who attended.
Thank you Action Events for a wonderful day! My son's birthday was a hit! :-)

"I hired 3 Super Heroes from Sword Play for my son's 4th birthday party. They were AMAZING and exceeded my expectations. Planning with Swordplay was very easy - top notch professionals with great customer service all around. I got everything I asked for."
Just wanted to say thanks again! They guys were great, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment.
Second year in a row we had Action Events at our house and it was awesome....nice job!!!!
Hi Gowrie -- ZAP (Zombie Awareness Program) was a runaway hit -- please give the guys our thanks. Ben's only regret afterward was that "the man who trained me about the zombies isn't still here with me" -- i.e. couldn't stay longer. Thanks so much!
Take care -- Jon Baird
Hi Gowrie! I just want to send my sincere thanks for everything Sword Play did for us for my son's 4th birthday party.This was our first big birthday bash we threw for our son. Needless to say we were a bit nervous, especially putting our faith into various companies and talent we hired. You guys were far superior to any of the other companies we dealt with.
The customer service was excellent. The super heroes who entertained the kids were amazing, fun, super spirited, responsive and really lead the way (something I really appreciated as a host & mom). I don't know what our party would have been like without them. All the kids had an exceptional fun time and it was terrific to see even the little girls get into the super hero play. And it didn't hurt that the moms appreciated the super heroes dashing good looks. ;)
Thanks again. I so appreciate everything and wish there were other companies like yours out there! You guys should give a lesson or two on customer service, spirit & talent.
Luke and Darth were amazing! The show was incredible and had the attention of all the adults and kids! The whole plot line was really awesome and my son absolutely loved every minute. I know this is something he will remember forever. Thank you so much, please be sure to tell Luke and Darth thank you again and I apologize for the hot, hot sun - talk about super stars!
Two very happy birthday boys! Last year, the Star Wars party was great. This year, THE AVENGERS were even BETTER!! So much fun for kids and adults alike. Thanks, Gowrie! See you next year!
We planned on having the entertainment done in our backyard but due to unexpected rain we moved inside the house. Although it got very chaotic, TJ and the "dragon princess" were able to handle the kids. They were SO AWESOME and I couldn't thank them enough for being spontaneous on everything! Not only the kids but the adults also enjoyed watching them and participating with their little games. I would definitely recommend your company to others.
Yes, they are the best. Jack S., Will T.& Barbosa were amazing!! Little and big kids were enthralled. My son is still talking about them after 3 months. I will definitely use la action events again!!
I hired two swordsmen/pirates to put on a show in the midst of a play I wrote for a party. Without much of a rehearsal, they stepped in and did an amazing job. It was an all women party and they flirted with the girls, made jokes, and filled their sword fight with action. It was such a rousing success that they have been demanded for this year's party too (Arabian Nights theme this time around).
I've read other reviews that say they are a bit "pricey" but my response is, you get what you pay for and quite simply, this outfit is awesome. It's worth every penny to see these guys in action.
I highly recommend this group for anyone who wants to add action, humor, and spectacle to their party or event!
We used Action Events yesterday for my son's 6th and daughter's 4th birthday party. It was a block party with a Star Wars Carnival theme, so when I found this company I thought it would be the perfect addition to our party. I was right! These guys were AMAZING! I am a pretty tough critic, but I can't find any complaints at all. The show itself was AWESOME. I cannot recommend them enough and if we ever have another party that we could incorporate this company--we definitely will. Also, Gowrie was wonderful to work with and very professonal. Thank you, Action Events for helping to make our party a HUGE success!
Spongebob and The Pirate showed up for my son's 5th birthday...he was soo surprised and your cast was EXCELLENT!! My son and his friends enjoyed the treasure hunt, the treasure chest and your Pirate was so kind to him on his special day! Thank you Action Events!
I've hired Obi Wan and Darth Vader twice, once for my 40th birthday party, and again for my 7 year old son's birthday. They are that great, and deserve repeat business. They were cracking up everyone at both parties, as they are not only action, but comedy also! Their swordsmanship is top notch. It's like having a medieval times type of show at your house or party venue.
Just wanted to let you know how AWESOME the guys were yesterday at my daughter’s birthday party! They were the hit of our party! Thank you so much! I love your company and will be recommending them to friends.

My son had Power Rangers Samurai for his 5th Birthday. I was lucky to find them here cause I was told that no one had them. All the kids had a great time! The adults had nothing to say but good things about them. Thank you to the RED and GOLD Power Rangers for making our event so special for our BLUE Power Ranger!
My son had a fantastic 6th bday party with U Guys! Thank U very much!!!
We had a Jedi Training party for my son's 5th birthday party and the kids are still talking about it. They had so much fun.
A Knight and a Dragon Princess came for my niece and nephew's birthday party and they were great!
For one whole hour, they entertained the kids, did the games, performed a sworfight did a skit... Even though they had to improvise due to the sudden appearance of wind and rain. "to the castle!" said the knight.
Costumes were amazing, the accent was cool, there were enough references to keep the older people entertained too!
You guys put on last night! My son wants you next month for his birthday party!
You guys did an amazing job at my son's 5th birthday. It was worth every penny! Darth Vador and Jack Sparrow were amazing!!! THANK YOU!
Jackie Harnage Willen
My kids had the best birthday party this past June. Even the next day, the kids were coming up to me and hugging me and saying that it was the best birthday party Ever! Thanks sooooo much
Thank you for doing such a great job at Sid's birthday party this past weekend in Rancho Mirage. Obi Wan, Luke and Darth Vader were amazing. My son's expression in every picture was worth every penny!!!
