Sarah Carter Vandever
Studio Creative Development Manager
The Let’s Party Painters Studio is what’s known to many as a chameleon, thanks to the efforts of Alexxa Pastore, who can (in a matter of 2 hours) change the shell of the studio from a Superhero event to a Royal Princess extravaganza. In addition to studio events, Alexxa is also responsible for most external event pre– and post-productions. Alexxa expresses creativity in a multitude of outlets, including playing the classic flute, band leadership and instruction, singing, acting, draw- ing, painting as well as other visual and performing arts. She is enrolled at Atlantic Cape Community Col- lege, studying Criminal Justice.
Cast Member Development Manager
Ever wonder why our cast members are so authentic in their portrayals? Connie spearheads our Cast Development, ensuring each person is trained and prepared for each and every event, from costume to dialect, spot -on signature to song selection. In addition to character development, Connie also works on large production events and showcases for the company. Enrolled as a full-time student at Stockton University, Connie is studying psychology and women’s studies. In addition to her many skills and talents, Connie has been a marquee singing and stage actress for over 12 years.
