How to Work Faire
The Northern and Southern Renaissance Pleasure faires (RPFI)
have performers organized into guilds under the performing arts
department (PAD). Guilds are headed up by headmasters or headmistresses
who report to, get information directly from, and receive miniscule
budgets from PAD. For information about working at RPFI, read
How to Work Faire
and How to Work Guilds.
Corrections, contact names or addresses, and urls should be mailed
to John Vinopal.
A few of the guilds at our faire are:
- Criers - St. Blaise: RPFN/S
Pass the advil and pray your hangover is gone by Noon when the Criers pass with their deafening bells and bellows to clear the road. Crowd control at its finest. St. Blaise vanished into St. Cuthberts at RPFN 97.
- Cuthberts - St. Cuthberts: RPFN/S
With the Guild of Parades and Pagents its walk walk walk, act act act. Lots of opportunity to appear on stage! You'll glean the true meaning of sinister and 'love an otter' (hey I don't know what it means, I don't work there...). One of the best lunches in the Shire.
- Dance Macabre: RPFN/S
The procession of the Dead travels faire from end to end refreshing the realization of mortality and celebration of Life.
- Drayers & Innkeepers - St. Albans: (email@example.com) RPFN/S
The functioning tap of the John Barleycorn Inn relies on the stern fist of 'Mother' who, along with a crew, maintain the environmental area of the John Barleycorn. Contact Kimberly Bartholomew for more information.
- Fools - Court of Misrule: RPFN/S
Hop, skip, and jump to a different beat. The rule of the day is Misrule!
- Irish - St. Patrick: RPFN
The Irish fall in daily behind their Clan leader, the O'Neil, and take to the stage in some, ah, Riverdancing.
- Italians - Santa Maria: RPFN
The Italians were cut from RPFI in 1995. A few Italian performers grace Faire through the Guild of St. Albans.
- Jousting - St Annes: RPFN/S
St Anne's was cut in 1994 to make way for REC's Heroes and Villains jousting show.
- Middle Class - St. Ives: (firstname.lastname@example.org) RPFS
St. Ives were cut from RPFN in 1996, but they are alive and well at RPFS. Contact Donna Flood for more information.
- Military - St. Michaels: RPFN/S
The ranks of English and German footmen present demonstrations of martial skills and march in a few parades with a frightful display of weaponry.
- Mongers - St. Swithins: (email@example.com) RPFN/S
These offal offerin' peasants have no shame. They spend their mornings toting the foulest victuals imaginable, march around with the Most Magnificent Fish known to Mankind, and perform some very silly shows.
- Nobility - St. George: RPFN/S
All the flash and all of the finery of the Bless'd Court of Queen Elizabeth Gloriana. You'll wait at Table as part of the Household for a few years while your betters discuss the worldly matters of the day.
- Peasants - St. Helenas: RPFN/S
These sturdy folk are secretly sinners! Or so it would appear by each mornings appearance of the Cart of Shame. They hold small skits and dance in the street!
- Puritans - St. Electus: RPFN/S
Repent, Repent, Repent! These uncouth busybodies make everyone's salvation their own business as they pester and harange, recite and orate, rant and proselytize. God works in peculiar ways.
- Scots - St. Brigid: RPFS
The Scots were cut from RFPN in 1996.
- Sea Dogs - St. Dymphna: RPFN/S
These salty haddocks are unfortunately in permanent drydock and spend their days singing songs, spinning yarns, and taunting landlubbers.
- Washer Women - St. Minerva: RPFN/S
A nastier hoard of husbandless drenched wenches you'll never see. These shrewish harpies spend their days gossiping and pretending to wash clothes. Cover your ears in the afternoons when they sing at the Inn.
