Virginia Dennis has been a performer, entertainer and actor for over 15 years and is a graduate of Sheridan College's Music Theatre Program and Second City's Conservatory Program.

Virginia has been a part of many children's touring theatre company shows, including Barney, Toopy and Binoo, and Fifi Forget Me Not with Kidomo; and Hansel and Gretel with Little Red Theatre. Virginia is an ACTRA and EQUITY member.

Virginia is always working on her face painting skills and has participated in facepainting workshops with Lucie Brouillard of Calgary and Margi Kanter of Making Faces Chicago.

Why hire Mabel Moon? While anyone can paint a face, Virginia's qualities of professional attitude and service, entertainment experience, patience with children and adults alike while retaining her childlike sense of fun have been the corner stone on which Mabel Moon has grown over the last 7 years in Simcoe County. Word of mouth referrals are where 80% of Mabel's work comes from!

She also comes complete with insurance, first aid certification, and a vulnerable sector check, and only paints with the industry's highest quality paint available. Kids feel comfortable with Mabel as Virginia ensures she is a lively character without being overwhelming. Being 5' tall DOES have it's advantages!! :)


"Virginia is a treat to work with! She's very flexible and accommodating - and her face-painting creations are AMAZING! The children felt so special with their unique designs! We will definitely work with Virginia again soon!"

"Hello Mabel Moon! Just wanted to tell you how happy you made my little guy the other day at the Elmvale Zoo! Each year when we go he's gotten his face painted by you and it's honestly his favourite part of the zoo other than seeing the lions as you can tell by his face - his favourite animal! Thank you for your amazing artwork and memories that will last a lifetime! You're amazing!"
