KNOXVILLE – Darkhorse Entertainment, LLC, invites you to participate in the 6th Tennessee Medieval Faire in Harriman. The festival is seeking professional performers, costumed street characters, and period-related vendors to recreate the High Middle Ages (circa 1000-1300) in a theatrical way. The theme is “Live the Age of Chivalry,” performed by interactive characters from the legend of Robin Hood.
Professional comedy, dance, and acoustic musical stage acts are encouraged to audition by February 22 by emailing performance details and video link(s) to DarkhorseLLC@comcast.net.
For those interested in participating as street characters, open auditions will be held on 2 – 5 p.m., Saturdays, Feb. 15, and 22, at 150 Culton Lane, Kingston. New auditioners are asked to bring a recent printed selfie. All should come prepared to demonstrate their outdoor performance talents, such as singing, juggling, playing an instrument, telling a story, speaking with a European accent, and participating in theatre games as directed. Agile adults are preferred, but mature and talented minors will also be considered. Having theatrical experience and an outgoing and friendly disposition are helpful.
The Faire is also seeking vendors to help bring the village of Nottingham to life. Vendors must make and sell their own wares. All work will be juried to ensure quality and fit.
