Lords and Ladies,

Thou must comest and enjoyest two full-days of activities and entertainment as CSM presents its fourth Renaissance Festival!

Renaissance festivals are popular throughout the country because they instantly propel visitors back to a time when lords ruled and peasants pleased, and they did so in the language and costumes of Shakespeare.

CSM’s festivities commence on Thursday, April 21, 2016, at 7:30 p.m. with an evening of madrigals and other vocal music in the Fine Arts Center Theatre. Join us on Friday, April 22, at 7 p.m. for The Last Days of Judas Iscariot by Stephen Adly Guirgis. Two full-days of revelry (sans alcohol) will take place on Saturday, April 23, from 10 a.m. through 4 p.m. and Sunday, April 24, from 11 a.m. through 4 p.m. Festival activities will take place in two locations. In the FA Theatre, the CSM Theatre Company will present performances of The Last Days of Judas Iscariot. All other activities, musical performances, face-painting, games, etc., will be on the lawn in front of the FA Lobby. Activities are either free or priced by the vendor.

Prepare thyself to revel with master revelers at CSM’s Renaissance Festival, where pleasures of the ear and eye reigneth!

Thou please comest!
