AVAILABLE NATIONWIDE, we are a full service event planning & entertainment company that specializes in unforgettable moments, 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 throw a party, host a party or crash a party!
2. We offer everything you need all in one place (no need to hire extra vendors).
3. We are on time, polite, and adaptable to ensure your event goes off without a hitch!

Some background about us:

The Great Surprisal (TGS), a Singing Telegram and Event Planning company began just over 3 years 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, team building activities, children's games, living statues, costumed characters, magic, balloon twisting, event photography, 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.

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 into 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.

*Auctioneering 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 a absolute pleasure to work with! I wanted my sister and future brother-in-law, to have their breath taken away with something incredible for their restaurant's 1-year anniversary. TGS was-hands down-the perfect fit. Amelia wrote an amazing song and performed it magnificently!! Everyone who witnessed the surprise came away enchanted and utterrly delighted!! Thank you so much TGS!!!
