Olympic Theater Arts organizes a Renaissance fair

Olympic Theater Arts hosts Renaissance era fair

Playing a charming and elated Queen Elizabeth I, Sarah Tucker got excited at the Renaissance Olympic Theater Arts Fair, held over the weekend.

“It was wonderful – absolutely wonderful,” she said, noting that she was “very honored to take (Patricia McArthur’s) place” as a royal figure, and that McArthur had given her “a lot of tips”.

As well as meeting the Queen and telling fortunes, visitors to the annual fair were treated to a wide variety of activities, including sword fighting lessons, storytelling, scenes from Shakespeare’s plays, a puppet show, ancient games such as knucklebones and tossing the rat. , caricature drawings and caresses of goats.

“Our volunteers and vendors threw a great party,” said OTA Executive Director David Heberlin. “They did a very good job.”

Tucker said the Celtic tarot card reading OTA actress Susan Cates gave her was “perfect”.

The children were invited to take part in a scavenger hunt with a prize at the end, but volunteer BJ Stallings said the adults were also on board.

“I gave 100 stickers (to complete parts of the hunt) to little kids and big kids,” she said.

“We have the best volunteers here,” said OTA volunteer coordinator BZ Zabora. “We are so lucky.”
