Paul Anthony's Talent Time: Renaissance Faire!
8:00pm - Thursday, Apr 4, 2019
One of the perks offered on our crowd funding campaign at the $150 level was to choose an episode theme that we would HAVE to execute. Nathan Heidecke & Erin O-C are forcing us to present a Renaissance fair. What a perfect episode to have to produce. Come see us try our best!
✓ THE BARONY OF LIONS GATE!
Not just "renaissance re enactors". The Barony of Lions Gate are a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism, an international organization dedicated to researching and recreating the arts and skills of Medieval Europe! Not only are they fun people who are providing a plethora of period entertainment but they have offered to dress Paul, Ryan, the house band and many of the crew! We hit the jackpot!!
✓ COMEDIAN EMMETT HALL!
If we had to pick only one local comedian to guarantee an accurate and hilarious medieval character, it would be Emmett. Happy to have him!
✓ SWORDPLAY DEMO: ACADEMIE DUELLO!
School of Western Martial Arts devoted to teaching the traditional martial practices of Europe. Their programs empower students to meet fitness goals, pursue mastery in martial arts, and engage the mind and body in a fun and unique way. They offer courses for youth and adults from a diverse selection of weapon arts
✓ JOUSTING & MEDIEVAL COMBAT!
With the help of the merry and enigmatic Sarge from The Barony of Lions Gate, you will see some authentic medieval combat!! Sarge is ton of fun! Plus with the skill of our prop team there will be some hilarious jousting.
