$150 - $5000 per event
AVAILABLE NATIONWIDE, we are a full service event production company that specializes in unforgettable moments for you, your guests and loved ones so you can all say "That was the most amazing time of my life!"

Hire The Great Surprisal for 3 great reasons:

1. We will plan a party, join a party, crash a party or emcee an event!
2. We will do all of the above while offering a variety of services like face painting, a photo booth, decor and food!
3. We will be on time, polite, and bring any kind of humor you request, whether it be for kids or adults.

Some background about us:

The Great Surprisal (TGS), a Singing Telegram and Event Planning company began just 1 year ago in Seattle, WA. However, the expertise of TGS has been growing through all aspects of the entertainment industry since 1981. Some of the services include emceeing, event planning (including weddings), catering, face painting, professional group ice breaking games, children's games, living statues, costumed characters, event photography and photo booths and more! To sum it all up, we offer a Jack Of All Trades line up, whether it be performing at or managing your most important event. Some of our past "behind the scenes" accomplishments include production management, birthday party planning, stage management and tour management.

We encourage celebration at the best of times (graduations, birthdays, marriage, anniversaries, promotions) and the worst of times (divorces, resignations, and times of loss...like when your favorite device falls in the toilet). It may sound strange but it's ok to celebrate when you finally broke up with that jerk! And we will make sure you do it right!

Some great experiences The Great Surprisal has masterminded:

*Hilarious and raucous New Jersey Housewife emcee, hosting a variety of fundraising events.

*Auctioneer for a Junior Pipe Band annual auction

*A treasure hunt across Seattle for blind-folded party guests in a limo, accompanied by a custom-designed soundtrack. Clues led them to a bonfire for roasting marshmallows, a playground, a deserted parking lot where they had to perform a field sobriety test and finally (still blind-folded), were asked to finger-paint self-portraits. A surprise performance by "Jo Caulker" wrapped up the evening along with homemade carrot cake and more party guests!

*A ninja telegram delivered to a place of business that included a Radio Flyer wagon, origami throwing stars, balloons, 6 bouquets of flowers and two flavors of Teddy Grahams.

*A murder mystery monster ball that included a monster drawing contest, brain eating, a dominatrix and bloody drinks.

*A "Round Clown" birthday party that created custom costumes onsite, face painting, round snacks and desserts, the game Twister, a piñata, limbo and a dance contest.

Whether you need a character or service for 10 minutes or 10 hours, The Great Surprisal will be there singing, planning your party, dancing or cracking jokes in whatever way you choose! Available to travel NATIONWIDE for very special occasions.

The great Surprisal was gracious in her entry to our event. It was my husbands 40th birthday and we arranged to have dinner with friends at our country club. The club was at full capacity and Marilyn made her entrance known, with her stunning arrival. She played into Eric's embarrasment and sang to him directly as we all watched and smiled:-) Many onlookers in the club that night, made it a point to come over to us after Matlyin's exit and tell us they thought it was GREAT too!

We really enjoyed the singing tellagram Amelia performed as Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn sang 'Happy Birthday Mr. President' to the president of our corperation during a board meeting and she was spot on. I wont hesitate to use her service again.
