Return of the King
Victory! The year is 1513. Our brave King, Henry VIII is
returning home in triumph from his glorious victory over the
French in the Battle of the Spurs, an aptly named battle that sent
the French cavalry fleeing in fear. A tremendous victory, indeed.
Meanwhile, back in England, who should think this the perfect
time to take advantage of Henry's absence and invade, but
the treacherous Scots to the North! Obviously, our northern
neighbors had no idea that our Queen, Catherine of Aragon is no
blushing bride, but a strong and fearless leader, for as soon as
our Queen heard news of the Scottish invasion, she immediately
suited up in armour and rode north to speak to her troops
before what would be called the Battle of Flodden Field. It was
a rousing speech, which led to a glorious victory! King James
IV of Scotland himself was killed at this battle, and our Queen
stood over his broken body, removed his bloodied robe and
cavalierly had it sent to her beloved Henry in France to inspire
him to victory. It must have worked, for now King Henry VIII
and Queen Catherine of Aragon are both returning from war
and have decided to meet here, in Mount Hope, for the victory
celebration! And a glorious celebration it shall be! Victory!!!
Henry VIII
Catherine of
Aragon

Storyline Shows
KING'S COURT
Join us for some merriment at the Endgame
Stage as our Lady Mayor and her husband, Sir
Reginald, welcome our King and Queen to the
Shire and officially begin this victory celebration!
HUMAN CHESS
There's nothing like a rousing game of Human
Chess to get you in the spirit for a victory celebration! Some of England's finest will face off
at this grand event.
TOURNAMENT JOUST
The Knights of the Realm meet on the Joust
List to determine who amongst them is the
best. Witness their skills being put to the test
as they try to outdo each other and lay claim
to the title of Best Knight in the Realm!
ULTIMATE JOUST
What was to be a joust of sport and tourney
to entertain our King and Queen this day, has
taken a most dark and mortal turn. For when
a Knights' honour is questioned, the answer
may only be given with blood. Therefore let
this joust be...TO THE DEATH!
FINALE IN SONG
It just wouldn't be a festival day without music
and merriment, so join us at The Globe Stage
where King, Queen, court, and peasants alike
will send you off with good cheer!
Stage Shows
* THESEUS & THE EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVE MINOTAUR • THE PENNYBRIGG
PLAYERS BLOODY BEST SHOW
Blood, death, and mayhem abound as a hero
with a sword meets a King-sized monster.
Greek mythology at its hilarious worst! Don't
worry, you won't learn a thing!
3
THE FARCE OF THE DREADFUL DEAD MAN
A fat friar, a cowardly knight, and a lazy knave
contend with a deeply creepy legend. You just
might laugh yourself into the grave.
* DOUBLE ENSEMBLE
Join our Shire folk as they take your suggestions and use them to create an entire,
full length, longish epic play that might be
hilarious and possibly inappropriate.
WHOSE JEST IS IT ANYWAY?
This improvisation extravaganza completely
made up with suggestions from the audience
will make you laugh, smile, giggle, and guffaw!
* RAKISH ROGUES
These four pirates are the only (sober) survivors of a shipwreck somewhere near Mount
Hope. Since His Majesty was feeling generous,
King Henry has promised to provide these
salty dogs with a brand new ship... but only
if they entertain his subject on this festival
day! Join the Rakish Rogues at the pub as they
trade stories and songs about wine, women
and... well, really, what else is there?
BOARSHEAD BRAWL
The groundbreaking celebration for the new
Boarshead Inn is rapidly approaching and Sir
George Talbot has spared no expense to ensure its rousing success! There will be music,
dancing, a feast, and of course lots of wine!
Add in a jealous court rival, a few soldiers, a
thieving beauty and a crazed Scot...the party
is sure to be a "blowout!"
THE QUEEN'S VARIETY SHOW
Come help our beloved Queen escape her
troubles, relax, and let her hair down. In this
musical comedy show, Sir Reginald has but
one mission: to show the Queen a good time!
* THE PEEBLES' COURT
What thou art about to bear witness to is real.
Those that shall be upon this stage are not
actors. They be litigants in a true case. Hereupon there shall be settled a dispute as to the
whereabouts of the Boarshead Inn. This is
Abby Peebles' Court.
* A FEAST OF FOOLS (A ROLE GAMING PLAY)
Here there be dragons... or possibly dungeons? Join Xavier the Jester and Detert the
Butcher as they roll up an improv fantasy
adventure! It's bawdy fun for the whole party!
JOYFUL NOYSE
Queen Catherine of Aragon has decreed that
there shall be madrigal-singing upon the Shire
of Mount Hope, and she has chosen the best
singers in her own court to perform. Turns out
those singers consist of three court nobles
and... the rat catcher?!? Come laugh with
these four characters as they share their love
for some of the prettiest (and silliest) music
written in the Renaissance.
Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire • manheim, pa
* THE SIRENS
Mysterious, tantalizing, and possibly… dangerous? These four beauteous wenches who
sing like angels may claim to be ordinary girls,
but are they really the Sirens we've heard of
in ancient legends who devour the souls of
men!?! You decide.
Children's Shows
CHILDREN VS. PEASANTS
The Lady Mayor needs your children! Her
husband has made the laughable claim that
he can train the peasants to be warriors for
the game of Human Chess. Not to be outdone, the Lady Mayor has claimed that she
could train children better than he could
train adults. Bring your children over to the
Chess Arena to help prove her right and have
some fun for the kids in the process.
PUNCH AND JUDY
Come one, come all to our puppet shows all
about the wild adventures of Mr. Punch and
his wife Judy! Enjoy the interactive experience
and get lost in the comedy of slapstick. Nothing says fun like puppets hitting each other!
TRUNK SHOWS
What is a trunk show anyway? A trunk show is
a story told by actors who have a trunk full of
props and costumes that allow them AND YOU
to become the characters needed to tell the story. It's great fun for the whole family, and who
knows? Maybe you'll wind up playing a princess,
a knight, a faerie, a pirate, or even a dragon!
King's Royal Performers at time of print. Performer run dates vary. Visit PaRenFaire.com for a full list of performers and run dates.
The King's Royal Performers
ARCHERY THROUGH THE AGES
Bringing the history of archery and its worldwide application to life. Demonstrating not
only how English longbows and wood arrows
are made, but how and why they were such
effective tools and weapons of war.
BARBY HOLDER
Traditional and original songs and instrumental
music—vocals, guitar, and hammered dulcimer.
BURLY MINSTRELS
From wild instrumental improvisation on
medieval themes to sweet, traditional
ballads, their music leaves your toes tapping
and makes you want to sing along.
CAST IN BRONZE
The only musical act of its kind in the world: the
carillon is played by a silent and masked "spirit
of the bells" that appears only to breathe life
into the instrument for the performance.
CHASTE TREASURE
This trio of upper class ladies brings a unique,
soulful sound to sassy songs and modern parodies alike. Truly a "treasure" but questionably
"chaste," their audience interaction is comical
while their tight harmonies mean business.
CIRCUS STELLA
A one-ring family circus featuring a husband and
wife and their performing puppies. All of the
dogs featured in the show are mixed breed rescue dogs from various humane societies - raising
awareness of the plight of shelter dogs and
encouraging people to adopt rescue animals.
DON JUAN & MIGUEL
Don Juan, the gallant and romantic Prince of
Spain and his ever-faithful manservant Miguel
bring a rare blend of improvisation and variety
skills together to create one of the most popular shows ever to grace a festival stage.
HARPER LEE
His Majesty’s Harper, Mary-Kate Lee, can be
found throughout the Shire playing Celtic, traditional, and original music for all who pass her way.
JOFFREY THE GIANT
Joffrey uses stilt walking for his theatrical comedy music and balloon twisting.
LONDON BROIL
The perfect juggling show blend; the kind of
show that is visually fascinating with some real
good stupid giggling—proving that you can be
family-friendly and hip at the same time.
* LOONEY LUCY & PLOPPY
Looney Lucy & Ploppy have three, count
'em three, X-rated (that's a ten for the little
nippers) comedy shows. These shows are
steeped in double entendre and linger with
odors of innuendo.
MIRANDOLA FANFARE
Enjoy the sounds of an all brass ensemble
during the Gate Opening and throughout the
grounds during the day!
THE MUD SQUAD
Three shows, three completely different
stories, and three idiots in the mud! “Splash
Zone” seats optional at the raucous shows
that prove children should stay in school!
NEIDFYRE FEATURING LONGSTOCKING
Neidfyre serenades on a fiddle, signing with a
genuine passion, Scottish, Irish, English, and Russian folk songs. She infuses vivacity and sheer
joy into her love of music and storytelling.
NOBLE CAUSE PRODUCTIONS
Specializing in jousting, stage combat instruction, fight choreography, and horse stunts,
Noble Cause is continually striving to reach
new heights with breathtaking new shows!
PASTIMES
A Medieval/Renaissance music consort, exploring and performing music and dance from the
Middle Ages to the Renaissance on authentic
period instruments and in historical costume.
RICK THE HYPNOTIST
The Amazing Art of Hypnosis will have you spellbound! Be amazed as you watch Rick Stratton
use phenomenal mind-bending techniques, totally harmless of course, on volunteers for the
audience. Hilarious antics and side-splitting
comedy are the result during every show.
RENAISSANCE VAUDEVILLE
Comedy! Juggling! AND a trained pig! What
more could you want in a variety show? Rick
and Jan will keep you laughing as they juggle
flaming shiny stuff while balancing on unusual
objects. Then Snorkel The Pig steals the show
with his precision stunt pig tricks! This is a
must-see for the whole family.
ROYAL FALCONER
Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire’s Royal
Falconer, Ash Cary, will be on hand at the
Aviary next to Endgame Stage displaying his
majestic birds of prey including falcons, an
Eagle Owl, and more.
RUKUS
This band is full of energy and will knock
your socks off with hilarious banter, amazing
music, endless talent, and high spirits. This
mixed mash-up has gathered together at the
Renaissance Faire to raise a "Rukus"!
SAXON MOON
These high-energy instrumentalists are the
rockers of the Renaissance, honoring the
traditions of the old world with music that
resounds in our new one.
SIR CHARLES BRANDON, MASTER OF
THE HORSE • Brandon is the complete
courtier: athletic, fun-loving, fashion-conscious, arrogant and unprincipled.
SIR ISAAC FAWLKES
Not your usual idea of a magician. He combines outrageous comedy and unusual magic
to create a hysterical show that leaves audiences in tears of laughter.
TARTANIC
Imagine one dancer, six drums, six drones,
18 notes, fast fingers, high comedy, flying
bagpipes, death-defying stunts, and scorching hot music played at over 120 beats per
minute with driving speed and high-volume—
all brought to you by five men without pants.
TILDA MORNING
This violinist can be found throughout the
Shire using her musical powers during Peasant Dance or separately serenading you on
the streets!
WASHING WELL WENCHES
Good, clean fun... Wet, dirty women. The
Washing Well Wenches are an all-female
comedy troupe that performs at various venues across the nation and beyond. Live, Love,
Laugh, Launder... Repeat.
WHIPS AND KNIVES
Adam Crack and Dakota throw knives and
crack whips within inches of each other in
this exciting, high-energy show. Adam has
set 16 Guiness World Records with whips and
has performed around the world. Dakota has
been performing since childhood with her
father in his show, Don Juan and Miguel.

Bacchanalian Cast
GREG RAMSEY
HENRY VIII, BY THE GRACE OF GOD,
KING OF ENGLAND, FRANCE AND
LORD OF IRELAND
Boisterous and energetic, lover of
sport, mirth, and merriment; our
handsome king is an athlete, a warrior, a musician, and poet. Henry is
the most charismatic man to ever
take the throne, but don’t let his love
of festivities deceive you. Our king is
a military lionheart with a surprisingly keen political mind. Henry was
the first King of England to use the
title “His Majesty.” If the lion knew
his own strength, hard were it for
any man to rule him.
KRISTEN SPANGENBERG
QUEEN CATHERINE OF ARAGON
Known for her graciousness, her compassion, and her charm; Catherine is
the epitome of nobility. Her courage
and piousness earned for her the love
and devotion of the English people.
This daughter of Spain and paragon
of virtue is our Queen.
SHEILA BARTON
LADY DOLORES PENBURTHY
LADY MAYOR OF MT. HOPE SHIRE
Perennially cheerful and socialite
supreme. Essentially runs the town.
DAVE GOLD
SIR REGINALD SMYTHE
PENBURTHY IX - HERALD
Retired and addled knight, married to the
Lady Mayor. Assists his wife (not always
well) in her mayoral duties, and serves as
the town herald upon necessity.
TODD SMITH
LT. GENERAL SIR GEORGE TALBOT,
4TH EARL OF SHREWSBURG, 4TH
EARL OF WATERFORD, LORD STEWARD AND KNIGHT OF THE GARTER HERO OF THE BATTLE OF THE SPURS
In case he hasn't told you, this
auspicious, swaggering Lord's
latest victory was in France.
JACOB MUNDELL
LORD HIGH ADMIRAL SIR THOMAS
HOWARD - HERO OF THE BATTLE OF
FLODDEN FIELD
Lord Howard is certainly no diplomat
or courtier—this angry warlike Lord
seeks to restore his family name and
his rightful title as "Duke of Norfolk"
through true patriotic service.
ANDREW TROTTER
HENRY "HAL" BOURCHIER - EARL
OF ESSEX
A member of Henry VIII's privy
council and also Mary Say's loving
husband (or so she makes sure to
tell everybody), Hal's passion lies in
speaking, which his wife mostly does
for him. Catch him alone, however,
and he will wax poetic about the
Pythagorean theorem, the price of
wheat in Northumberland, and why
little green men were responsible
for the Second Muscovite-Lithuanian War of 1500.
13
MELISSA PIPHER
LADY MARY SAY BOURCHIER
COUNTESS OF ESSEX
Stunningly confident and surprisingly
loud, Mary Say Bourchier enjoys the
simpler things in life, especially bearbaiting and hen-pecking. All she wants is
to live in the wide-open country where
she can be as loud as possible and there
are no neighbors to complain.
TAYLOR GRACE SUMNER
LADY ELIZABETH STAFFORD
COUNTESS OF SURREY
BRANDON DENNISON
XAVIER LAROACHE - FRENCH FOOL
Sir George Talbot himself discovered
this vagabond cowering behind a
tent at the Battle of the Spurs. The
manner in which he begged for his
life was so hilarious that Sir George
saw it fit to present him to the
Queen as her new jester.
CAITLIN CAMPBELL
SIR JOHN (JOAN) MAYWEATHER SOLDIER
A fifteen-year-old girl and good
friend of Catherine of Aragon, Elizabeth Stafford lived at home until
seven years ago and is suffering
from a massive case of sheltered
child syndrome. She is currently
fed up with her husband's (Thomas
Howard) constant swordplay and is
now trying to play the field… so she
has a crush on all the men in court.
It’s an old story. Boy meets girl. Girl
loves boy so much that she cannot bear
to see him go off to war. Girl then dresses up like a man so she can be a soldier
with him. Girl becomes a better soldier
than boy, so she advances in rank and
respect, leaving boy behind. As it turns
out, girl loves being a soldier more than
girl loves boy. Poor boy.
DOUG WALLACE
ALFIE DUNSTON - TRAVELING
REGIONAL EXECUTIONER
SIR ROBERT ASKE OF AUGHTON
NEAR SELBY
This brave Knight fought most
fiercely for King and country at the
Battle of the Spurs. A carousing lover
of wine, gambling and all things creative, this warrior earned his victory
holiday and he’s going to enjoy it.
EZEKIEL JACKSON
CAPTAIN BERTRAM POWELL
Captain of the Kings Yeoman Guard.
Bertram has seen it all. Were it not
for his undying loyalty, he could tell
stories that could start wars!
JAKE DAILEY
YEOMAN RANDOLF WARD
Guardian to the King and Queen. Randolf is green, eager to please and delightfully unburdened with intelligence.
Randolf may not have a rapier wit, but
with a broadsword or halberd in his
hand it’s quite clear why he’s trusted to
protect our beloved King and Queen.
JEFF WOLFTHAL
FINLAY MUIR - SCOTTISH WARRIOR
For most people, having ones' hands
shackled on a festival day would be
downright depressing. Then again,
most people aren’t Finlay Muir!
Since being forced to yield by his new
“frenemy” Thomas Howard at Flodden Field, Finlay has decided that as
long as his hands are bound, he might
as well smile and have a good time.
Of course, if anyone were to remove
his shackles, he’d be forced to kill every last one of us! Perhaps we should
just leave them on.
MATTHEW SMITH
FANRICH BARTOLD VON HOLTZ
LANDSKNECHT (GERMAN MERCENARY)
This overly hospitable and amicable
soldier is a veteran of over a hundred
frays. Just ask him, he’ll tell you all
about them (every detail) and he won’t
let his lack of English skills stop him.
Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire • manheim, pa
NATHANIEL BARBER
As a traveling executioner, Alfie
is not always greeted with a high
amount of enthusiasm, except of
course, in Mt. Hope where executions are so rare that no one fears
old Alfie. His greatest fear (besides
being deathly afraid of sharp metal
objects) is having to actually perform his duty in Mt. Hope and lose
the hospitality there, he has grown
so accustomed to.
EMILY LYNN
MISTRESS AGNES CHADWICK,
SHERRIF OF MT. HOPE LAW ENFORCEMENT
Our sheriff knows right well that without the dark there can be no light.
Pragmatic through and through, Agnes keeps the shire’s undesirables in
check. She knows how they think. After all, she and notorious thief, Penny
Posch used to be partners in crime!
TAYLOR SORREL
MARTIN STRANGEWAYS RAT CATCHER
The Shire rat catcher was minding
his own business when the Queen
"invited" him to come sing with Joyful Noyse. But now that he has an
opportunity to poke fun at the nobility with the barrier of "The Queen
invited me here," he's going to take
every advantage he's got.
ALI FOLEY
AMETHYST CUTHBERT - GOLDSMITH
As the daughter of one of England’s
finest goldsmiths, to say she was
born with a silver spoon in her mouth
just doesn’t seem right… yet you get
the picture. She’s part goldsmith,
part jeweler, and since she can afford
it, part banker! Always in good spirits, this playful mistress wishes only
to beautify the shire with her wares
and her love of merriment.
ARIEL DE MENT
PENNY POSCH - THIEF
This beautiful and dangerous thief is
so good at her trade that unless her
nemesis, Sherrif Agnes Chadwick
is around, she will often announce
herself and her intentions. Otherwise it’s just too easy!
JILLIAN BARRON
ABISHAG PEEBLES - ALE WENCH
Hard-working and ambitious, Abby
has the gift of gab and that "can do"
attitude that a good wench needs to
get ahead in life. Abby is certain that
one day, she, and all who work hard
like her, will get to enjoy the fruits of
labour. As it turns out, today be just
one of those days, for at six of the
clock this very e'en, the owner of The
Boarshead Inn will be handing over
the keys! But wait… isn't The Boarshead supposed to be right… ne'er
mind, I must have made a wrong turn.
JENNIFER BRUNKER
URSEL PFEIFFERR GERMAN FUR TRADER
As a fur trader, Ursel spends most of
her time off in the wilderness. Her social skills, as a matter of course, directly reflect this. Be not mislead though!
Underneath her harsh choice of words
and odd choices of conversation topics lies a heart full of sweetness who
just wants to be your friend.
TIM HARTMAN
DETERT FLEISCHKOPF GERMAN PORK BUTCHER
Thankfully Detert’s enthusiasm for
just about anything is positively
infectious, otherwise his poor understanding of social cues and his
blunt, unintentionally crass nature
might be downright annoying. But
we love Detert, really we do.
ROSSER LAMASON
TEMPLETON GIBB PENNYBRYGG PLAYER
Nervous and eager to please, this
young thespian is anxious to earn
a reputation as one of England’s
respected actors. Tell him you’ve
heard of him and watch him explode with excitement.
SABRINA BLACKBURN
DELILAH LOVE PENNYBRYGG PLAYER
At first glance Delilah is sweet, kind,
and lovable. Look a little deeper and
you’ll find her thrill seeking need for
excitement, which can often get her
into trouble.
MATT EBLING
THURSTON WRIGHT PENNYBRYGG PLAYER
The pride and prestige of the Pennybrygg Players. How the Pennybrygg
Players were able to afford an actor
of Thurston’s caliber is difficult to
understand. His fame and public adoration are simply unprecedented.
CATE KESSLER
MEREDITH LOXLEY PENNYBRYGG PLAYER
Elegant, mysterious, captivating,
alluring, mesmerizing, enchanting,
graceful, powerful, and brilliant…
these are the words she would prefer you use to describe her.
ANGIE FENNELL
PETUNIA PENNYBRYGG PENNYBRYGG PLAYER
After the mysterious disappearance
of her parents, it was positively astounding how quickly and efficiently
she took over the family business…
perhaps… too astounding?… Nah!!!
Well, just in case, we should all treat
her with a good deal of respect.
PATRICK CROCE
HARCOURT FENTON PENNYBRYGG PLAYER
This con man turned actor found
the perfect long con when he met
Petunia Pennybrygg. But is he actually developing an affection for
Petunia and an appreciation for
the art of acting? Or is this all a
part of his scam? You decide.
DYLAN COLLINS
LORD RAULPH PLUMBCRACKERS PENNYBRYGG PLAYER
When casting a play, sometimes
one must settle for those who are
willing. And so we have Lord Raulph
Plumbcrackers. A strange character
indeed, but is he a Lord, an escaped
bedlamite, or five ducks in a man
suit? We just can’t tell.
NOAH BERRY
CAPTAIN TOBIAS BRIDGE - PIRATE
Captain of the Black Barnacle. We
are not sure where he came from or
how he acquired his vessel but from
an outside perspective he appears
to be a flamboyant, drunken fool.
He always does seem to "Bridge" the
way at the last moment to fix each
of his problems with great flair and
performance. He is fond of obnoxious singing and bright colors, lover/
disappointer of women, and when
coinage and drink is to be found, he
stumbles in that direction.
ANDY DENNISON
GAVIN “THE CANNON” BLOOD PIRATE
Gavin is the Gunner and "muscle"
of the Black Barnacle. He is, well…
not the brightest gem in the treasure chest. He is sweet, however,
and cares deeply for Les. He will
often "hulk" out if he ever loses his
temper but usually he is sweet, shy,
and a lover of small, cuddly animals.
He has a pet rat that has been dead
for several weeks. No one is brave
enough to break the news to him.
EVIN HOFFMAN
HENRICK ST. IVES - PIRATE
Navigator/cabin boy/anything-thecaptain-needs man of the Black Barnacle. Originally from the icy Viking
waters, he was picked up by Bridge
as a teenager. He is bright and full
of youthful energy. He is an overachiever and way too enthusiastic.
He is deeply hurt if he does something that is not perfect.
VANESSA STERLING
ASTRID NOORDEN SIREN OF THE NORTH SEAS
Astrid is as cool and calm as the glacial
waters from which she hails. Many
have tried to thaw her icy exterior,
but only the most worthy (and hairy)
Viking warrior can melt this Siren's
heart. Beards are her weakness. Little
known fact: Astrid can speak fluent
whale, dolphin, and a hint of seal.
KIMBERLY FIFE
NADIA SOUTHWALL SIREN OF THE SOUTH SEAS
Fierce, fabulous, and a little vain,
Nadia is the "diva" of the Sirens.
Her hot-blooded passions are boiling just beneath the surface; even
though her temper can flare in an instant, it can dissipate just as quickly.
Her tastes run towards the rich and
powerful men (she and Odysseus
were very close, regardless of what
the stories might have you believe).
JULIA HOFFMANN
TALIA ESTION SIREN OF THE EASTERN SEAS
TOBY O’BRIEN
Talia is the Siren who most often has
her head in the clouds. She thinks
her reflection is actually her long
lost twin, Tulia. Some might think
Talia is a few guppies short of an
aquarium, but she still manages to
lure naïve and unsuspecting young
men to her side!
Les (don't call him Leslie) Moody has
been under the thumb of Captain
Bridge for far too long, in his opinion,
and longs for the day that he can captain his own ship. Unfortunately, he is
deathly afraid of water, so he is stuck
with the one captain in the world who
actually appreciates his usefulness on
a ship. He spends his free time knitting, appreciating fine art, and plotting the demise of his fearless leader.
MORGANE WESTERLY SIREN OF THE WESTERN SEAS
Wild and unpredictable, Morgane
craves adventure and excitement at
every turn. The few sailors who have
dared to venture into the unexplored
Western waters have caused her to develop a particular taste for both pyrates
and ale. Unfortunately, the more she
drinks, the more sober she becomes!
