Welcome to my Renaissance Faire blog.

•January 26, 2010 • 4 Comments

This blog is an addition to Renaissance Faire Pictorial.com. The site focuses on my visits to Renaissance Festivals and events in the south eastern USA. I post pictures, links, and information on faires in TN, Ky, Al, and Ga. In addition I have calendars for Renaissance, pirate, and fairy festivals. I do not list them all, there are several sites that do that. For information on others faires visit Faire Folk or Renaissance Festival.com.
I will use the blog to post festival news, audition notices, site update notices and more. Early each month I list the events for the coming month. Please drop in a comment, rate a post, or use the share this blog link to the right.

Thank you.

Open Call – February 8th, 2014
The Tennessee Renaissance Festival is casting for its 2014 Festival. Actors will portray the townsfolk and nobility of Covington Glen, a 16th Century English Village. The Festival invites actors (18 years or older) of all types and experience levels to our Open Call on February 8th, 2014. Please dress comfortably and come prepared to move. Actors will be asked to participate in improvisational exercises and anyone wishing to demonstrate specific skills (character or theatrical monologue, singing or period musical instrument, stage combat, or other skills) may do so, though this is not required.


• We are looking for Peasants, Nobility, and Fairies.
• Rehearsals are every Saturday and Sunday starting the last weekend of March through April. There will be additional rehearsals in February and March for fairies, stage combatants, and the Shakespeare cast. In addition, we will have specialty rehearsals as needed during the weeks leading up to the festival.
Please consider the time commitments needed for these more demanding roles prior to agreeing to you casting.
• Rehearsals will cover: guidelines on how to build a period-looking costume, character development, interactive and improvisational theatre, and language and dialect skills.
• Performance Dates are: May 3, 4, 10, 11, 17, 18, 24, 25, and Memorial Day Monday May 26th, 2014. Festival hours are 10am to 6pm; call time for some performers is as early as 8am.


Event dates: Weekends in may plus Memorial Day
