Established in 2007, the Krewe of Sirens grew out of the bond of two friends wanting to contribute more to Pensacola. “We wanted to create something were we could enjoy our friends and contribute to our community,” says Krewe co-founders. “We have a lot of fun, too — we can cut loose and dress up every once in a while. It’s great to just be friends and have camaraderie with other women.”
Friendship comes in all forms and the Krewe of Sirens was founded to strengthen bonds of friendship by providing a haven for women to laugh, socialize and give back to their community. As women we tend to hold our friendships close to our hearts and in this Krewe we wanted to share those feelings with others.
The Sirens support the American Heart Association in the “Go Red for Women” campaign.
Our Queen is known as a Soubrette and King as a Rogue.
In theatre, a soubrette is a comedy character who is vain and girlish, mischievous, lighthearted, coquettish and gossipy—often a chambermaid or confidante of the ingenue, she often displays a flirtatious or even sexually aggressive nature.
