This is my performance schedule for Commedia, Shakespeare, and improv for 2020. Subject to change, but this looks very likely to be it. If you want to join in my fun, please do! My email is at the bottom!
1) March 7 – Kingdom Arts and Sciences Festival – https://raerosado.wixsite.com/kasf2020
The autocrat approved a 30 minute performance time for “Shakespeare in Germany” which is 90% i Firenzi people anyway, so I’m calling it “I Firenzi and Friends”. ANYONE WHO WANTS TO is welcome to join in and perform a Shakespeare monologue or short scene. If we need more stage time, we can probably get it, but that is not guaranteed since it needs review and approval by the Autocrat.
2) April 18 & 19 – Festival of Legends – http://festivaloflegends.com/
i Frienzi will again present fun and silliness of commedia at this local fantasy fest at Optimist Farm.
3) April 25 – Gawain and the Green Knight event – http://atlantia.sca.org/137-events/170-event-info?event_id=dfd72f01
We decided, so far, to present the commedia show that we develop for Festival of Legends AND some Shakespeare scenes, AND a Who’s Line Doth It Be Anyway show! ALL OF IT! If you want to join in our fun, please let me know!
4) May 31 – North Carolina Museum of Art Ren Faire & Barony of Windmasters’ Hill DEMO – https://www.facebook.com/events/529187507842244/
Our own Isabella is running this big demo, and i Firenzi is expecting and expected to do something. What we’re doing is unclear. But it’s on my calendar.
5) June 27 – Known World Theater Arts Symposium
YES YOU SAW THE DATE AS JUNE 27! NOT JUNE 20! THE DATE CHANGED SOMETIME IN DECEMBER AND WE ARE WORKING ON AN INFORMATION CORRECTION EFFORT!
If you want to do COMMEDIA or SHAKESPEARE with me at this event, please let me know!
6) July 25-August 9 – PENNSIC! Again, I’m running the Commedia All Stars, and it’s my 20th Anniversary of doing commedia. Yes, I’ve been studying, producing, promoting, teaching, and performing commedia for 20 years now. PLEASE let me know if you are coming to Pennsic and want to do commedia with me! (I can also give you suggestions on how to do commedia at Pennsic WITHOUT me if you want. 😉
7) September 26 – Midnight At The Oasis (MATO)
This is an old event The Canton of Nimenfeld put on at Optimist Farm that used to be fun years ago. Sir Alain is resurrecting it. Performing Arts is on their list, but specifics are TBD.
8) October 16-18 – War Of the Wings (WOW)
On Friday night, October 16, I hope to again do our traditional Naughty Show.
9) November 14 – Buckston Birthday
No idea what to do, but it’s local and friends run the event. It’s an opportunity for fun. I *think* this year’s theme is Alice In Wonderland. 🙂
10) December 5 – Unevent. No performing, but the business of drumming up support for performers is always done here, so I’ll be there.
I will be adding in some opportunities to do IMPROV COMEDY and audition new non-SCA folks for i Firenzi. My goals for 2020 include broadening my scope for playing myself and finding new friends who *genuinely* enjoy the same fun that I do. If you want to come play with me, please let me know.
