Guest List

 

Madeline Broussard
Beauty Salon Owner and Mardi Gras Queen, Krewe of Pantheon
Madeline Broussard is the Krewe member you can always count on to keep her promises! A hairstylist by trade, she is extremely outgoing and quite talkative!

Marc Boudreaux
Fisherman and Mardi Gras King, Krewe of Pantheon
Sometimes referred to as ‘Captain Dictator,’ Marc Boudreaux is not known for having compassion for people. On his fishing boat, he struggles with an inability to work with others and often has difficulty controlling his emotions! So why was he voted the Mardi Gras King this year? Good question! But there’s at least one person that can take what this miserly grouch dishes out - that’s his long-time girlfriend, Jeanne Trudeau.

COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Semi-formal party attire with a King’s Crown. An optional Mardi Gras mask as a prop.

Remy Castille
Lawyer and Mardi Gras Maid, Krewe of Pantheon

Sebastienne always gets what he wants; when he sets his mind to something…he’s more than persistent until it is done.

Jeanne Trudeau
Swamp Tour Owner and Member of the Board of Directors of the Krewe of Pantheon

She is known to be ill-mannered and argumentative to those around her, and most Krewe avoids interacting with her. Anything you say…she is certain to take the opposite stance and argue about it. So why is she a member of the Krewe? Her father is the largest financial contributor…so everyone is forced to put up with her attitude.
