Sarah is certainly no stranger to performance. Being a 3rd generation performer (her mother's mother, Robin Good, did Shakespeare at the Old Globe, and her grandfather was an actor, too), it's literally in her blood. Originally from Los Angeles, but raised bicoastally between LA and Rhode Island, Sarah moved to the Bay Area about 9 years ago, and responded to an ad looking for a Jasmine entertainer for a birthday party. She had been a costume shop manager, pattern maker, and wardrobe and fashion designer at San Diego Repertory Theater, and since her father's originally from Jordan, it seemed like a match made in Princess heaven.
When she was little, Sarah dreamed of being an artist, but assumed this meant she had to be a painter. There was also a brief period when she wanted to be a lawyer, but her love of costuming and sparkle won out in the end. The eldest of three siblings, Sarah used to spend hours making up silly songs and playing games with her sister and brother, who wanted be a Bunny Rabbit and a Tractor respectively. That might sound silly, but as Sarah says "With costuming, anything is possible!"
Sarah's done tons of parties for kids ages 4 - 8, but really loves it when all the party guests get involved. She loves working with older kids, too, because "They still want to believe in magic, all you have to do is give them an excuse."
"I was Sofia, and the family had this whole huge hall rented out just for the party. After we did our Princess Procession, the birthday girl did a phenomenal full-on rendition of Let It Go, and I was absolutely awestruck! "Later, when we were playing Limbo, all the women in the family joined hands an formed a giant circle around us and cheered for each guest as they took their turn. I was floored and on the verge of tears the whole time because it was just so beautiful!"
Outside of Fire Pixie, Sarah is a genuine Jill-Of-All-Trades. She's a model and actor, and recently started doing voice acting, too. She frequently works with Mario Chiodo studios doing costuming and photo shoot styling for the packaging for their Halloween costumes and wigs - you've likely seen her work in your local costume shop. She also designs custom costumes for herself and other live performance artists.
She works with a variety of performance groups around the Bay Area and beyond. She's one of the founding members of The New Eccentrics (who brought you the world's first Pop Up Book Musical), and as a long-time member of The New Old Time Chautauqua, Sarah has entertained in underserved communities all over the US. This winter and spring, you can see her performing with the Golden Thread Fairy Tale Players, an educational outreach program which features theater from and about the Middle East. Catch her as Princess Tamar in their their production of "Princess Tamar Rescues Nazar the Brave".
Sarah's also a fantastic roller skater! If you happen to attend the Church of 8 Wheels' weekly family lesson and skate, you might catch Sarah skating around the rink in full Princess garb. Recently, she also teamed up with Fire Pixie's own Erin to debut one of Erin's newest LED creations.
