Where the dream started...


About the Owner...​

Lisa Capasso attended Mundelein High School, where she holds the indisputable all time record for hours dedicated to the theater program while garnering Thespian of the Year honors on multiple occasions. She also performed in the perennial award winning MHS show choir for all 4 years of High School.
Soon after her May 2015 graduation from Millikin University with a bachelor's degree in Theater Arts, Lisa Capasso has been delighting children with her personal warmth, beautiful singing voice, and passion for putting smiles on the faces of all the young people she encounters on a daily basis.  Her classroom experience as a north suburban Montessori school teaching assistant in her first post-graduation year has strengthened her desire to bring children's fantasies to life with her newest venture - Once Upon a Time Entertainment.
Her many friendships in the theater community have provided fertile ground for her to attract and hire talented colleagues to perform with her as different characters that will continually wow the children AND their parents.
