This comedy-adventure show is filled with thrills, chills and heroic hijinks. Meet the dynamic sword-fighting duo, and join in on the fun as they are looking for new heroes to make it to one of their Guild Recruitment meetings! Or at least helping them settle some Dueling Disagreements! Adventure onward!
FAN FAVORITE RETURNING – MooNIE the Magnificent
MooNiE the Magnificent is an immersive silent comedy experience that engages the audience by using whistles and gestures to put everyone in stitches. Adding to the comedy is MooNiE’s mesmerizing balancing and juggling skills, creating an enjoyable family-friendly show that has something for everyone.
FAN FAVORITE – The MooNIE and BrooN Show
When MooNiE teams up with the edgy & sarcastic BrooN, there’s no telling what you’re in store for! MooNiE and BrooN are a perfect double act that clash as well as compliment, creating the ideal recipe for painfully good comedy where no one will know what they’re going to do next, including them.
RETURNING! – Wolgemut
Prepare for an adventure – Wolgemut performs historical music on original instruments such as the medieval bagpipes, shawms and bombastic drums as well as quiet instruments like the flute, medieval fiddle and harp. Playing at international festivals around the world, Wolgemut promises to leave everyone “in a good mood” which is the translation of his name!
FAN FAVORITE – DeBracy Productions – Joust
Come witness this heart-pounding medieval live action stunt show. Debracey Productions combines trick riding, vaulting, chariot racing, death-defying stunts, full-contact jousting, and a gladiator style spectacle. Experience a spectacle where the winner takes all, princess, kingdom, and treasure, but is it all worth it?
