The Gwendolyn ShowOne half of the popular Steele Sisters comedy sword fighting show, Gwendolyn Steele (Nicole Skelly) is making her way in the world solo. What kind of trouble can she get into? Join in as Gwendolyn explores life, the universe, and how to get a date!
Hilby, the skinny German juggle boyBest described as a show without boundaries, Hilby is the living proof that being German doesn’t mean you can’t be funny. Hilby is an expert in juggling all sorts of objects and subjects. He also is amazing in countless circus and variety skills such as unicycling, balance stunts and more. Performing 10/7 - 10/22.
The Hoop Enchantress Erin Jeannier is a performer with many circus skills: aerial silks, stilts, fire, and hoop artistry. She'll perform her hoop work in the pathways and stages here in Revel Grove, twirling as many as six hoops at a time on her body, feet, and even her nose!
La Dama BobaLa Dama Boba by Lope de Vega, edited and adapted by Carolyn Spedden. Directed by Tom Plott.
The Acting Company presents the fast-paced and funny comedy by Lope de Vega, who is considered a master in the Spanish Golden Age, and second only to Cervantes in the world of Spanish literature.
Octavio, a gentleman in a constant state of exasperation, is trying to marry off his two daughters. All of the fops in town adore elder daughter Nise, who is charming, educated and wise. And then there is Finea, who is beautiful....but a ridiculous fool! Octavio despairs that anyone will marry Finea, but luck is changed when a uncle bequeaths 40,000 ducats to be used as her dowry. This event marks the start of a wacky comedy filled with loyal servants, foppish admirers, disloyal suitors, silly girls turning wise, and wise girls driven mad by love. Of course, there is a happy ending! This one hour adaptation is performed each day at the Globe Theatre. (La Dama Boba translates to the silly or foolish lady.)
Lancelot the BaldAn authentic English gentleman resplendent in tights, this bright character will have you in stitches with his improbable stunts and cheeky comedy.
Watch as he spins plates from his mouth and on the horns of a Viking helmet. Stare in wonder as he balances on a rolling ship and walks blindfolded on a rope. Gasp as he plays with fire, knives and even axes. He often leaves his audience not only thinking “How did he do that”, but also, “Why did he do that”! 9/2- 9/10.
The London BroilA charming and innovative mix of free-flow comedy and fantastic team juggling. AJ, Louie and Matt have performed thousands of shows together nationwide since 1999. Three different shows: “Blades of Fury”, “Juggling well Done” and “Lets Loose” where nothing is planned and anything goes! Visit them at www.thelondonbroilshow.com. Performing on the Royal Stage from 8/26 - 9/24.
Mike AngeloA word from Mike Angelo:
Musical, magicial, paintable, and ‘poetical' too,
Because life without quality art is like Violets (are blue.) Ps--come see my organ
Laughs, oohs and fun- no butts, ands or if's
Appropriate for all ages including kids (if muzzled, gagged, and bearing gifts)
If you were going to see just one show at the Faire, it should NOT be this one.
Unless you'd care, unless you'd dare,
To spend your time immersed in the arts,
at a show for all types (except smart kids and cranky old farts)
Performing 8/26 - 10/01

The Pee Wee Pirate ShowMary Ann Jung.
Avast ye slug-a-beds! Wake up and join Captain Jean the Pirate Queen as she teaches about sailing on a ship. Pirates? Not only pirates are discussed in this fast-moving and exciting show, but ye will learn about all types of sailing information - ships, 16th century history, even how to climb the rigging.
An interactive show for all ages - kids are swept out of their seats as they are asked to pantomime hoisting the rigging, swabbing the decks, throwing out fishing nets, and even looking for land. A chance to clap, move, shout and have fun - like all sailors and pirates want to do. At the Gatehouse Stage.
The Perfect Touch with ColumbinaMichele Schultz.
A courtesan was a well-educated independent woman who was believed to have high standards and very loose morals. That may be true, but Columbina would never tell...for free. Find out what makes this Courtesan the best of the best. Join Columbina for bawdy music, laughter, and more as she shows you how she achieved "The Perfect Touch." PG for mature themes.
Pirate EscapePirates are the scourge of the seven seas and the law is clear that they must be hunted down and captured.
It’s also clear that we all want to see them escape, to sail again.
Horatio Bachsjumpor, aka Captain Nobeard (Matthew Pauli), is always prepared in case he is captured. He will be shackled, chained, and secured in a crate.
Can he slip his bonds and escape?
At the Lyric Stage.
Puke & SnotMark Sieve, John Gamoke.
One of the longest running and most successful acts in the history of renaissance festivals. Intense wit, flashy swordfights, and organic vegetables: the laughs come in waves, often at racetrack speed. Their comedy owes as much to Abbott and Costello as it does to Avon’s Bard. A gallant romp of hysterical fun.

The Queen's Singers : A Royal W(h)ineStephanie Phelan, music director.
