Nutty's has been up and running for nearly 11 years now, and depsite some of our oldest themes, like Pirate Dan's Treasure Hunt, for example, still being performed regularly, we never get bored. Why? Becuase no two parties are the same.
Obvously a Fairy party in Kensington is going to be differnet from an Explorer Party in Chiswick. A Disco party in Clapham different from Wizard Dee (Harry Potter friendly) in Hammersmith. But all of our parties can be so diffrent- becuase kids are so different. People are different.
And we can never predict if one is going to go smoothly. or with some, or a lot, of difficulty. If we know there will be 30 kids, (our maximum limit for one entertainer) often we mentally prepare for a hectic party. But sometimes those big numbers can actually provide a bit of 'safety in numners' and can go better than expected. If we know we're having only 9 kids, that can end up being a lot harder than you think. If 2 or 3 are showing signs of not realy getting it, it can steer the rest of the group in the same direction...
And we get so many differnet reactions for elements we do. Some kids find Super Dan's clumsy, haphazard nature, absolutely hilarious. Others are happy and clearly enjoying it, but not laughing out loud. Some have their mouths hanging open when we 'transform' in to Darth Jaw for our Danijel The Space Warrior (Star Wars) party, others are viisbly scared!
The great thing about all of this is it keeps us on our toes. We can't go in to auto pilot with each party, we have to guage and listen to the group in question for each and every one.
This is why we love doing what we do!
