Enchanted King and Faerie Women
Lesser known stories of the Round Table
November is the time for remembering and a time of telling stories. The Arthurian legends emerged during a time when our ancestors gathered during the darkening nights to pass the time by telling each other stories. They told stories of what it was like to be a hero, to struggle with life, to love and to let go.
Enchanted Kings and Faerie Women tells some of the lesser known tales from the Knights of the Round Table. Come hear the tale of Igraine who must dig deep to find the courage to let go, Merlin who gives everything for love and Ragnell whose breath could flatten a hundred knights! These stories will lead you into a mystical world filled with stories, music and enchantment!
Tickets: $20 per person OR $35 for two
Children 12 and under: $10 each
