OTA’s annual Renaissance Faire this weekend

SEQUIM — Back and bigger than ever, Olympic Theatre Arts is gearing up to take the community back in time with its annual Renaissance Faire, slated for 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The entire grounds at OTA’s campus at 414 N. Sequim Ave. are being transformed, with the OTA Main Stage featuring “Tour of Shakespeare,” a show highlighting how Shakespeare’s writing style changed over his career.

The Gathering Hall will host Midsummer Night’s Dream’s Mechanicals, as they perform the hysterical Pyramus and Thisbe.

Outside, a dozen vendors and food vendors will populate the grounds along with renaissance games, roving musicians and actors, fortune-tellers, caricature artists, puppet shows and combat class. Guests are invited to dress up and role play along with the Queen as they turn back time.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for students (ages 13-17) and two youths 12 and younger get free admission per paid adult admission. Tickets are valid for both days.

Tickets are available online at olympictheatrearts.org or by calling the box office (360-683-7326) 1-4 p.m., today.

Sponsors include Air Flo Heating Company, Alder Wood Bistro, All Safe Mini Storage, Anime Kat, Johnathan Jack Insurance, Maple View Farm, Mike Medler and Pacific Rim Hobby.

For more information, visit olympictheatrearts.org or call 360-683-7326.

The two spans, which opened this week, eliminate a long detour for users of the Olympic Discovery Trail by restoring the link across the river. An additional walkway, which is still under construction with an opening scheduled for later this fall, will link the trail to the outdoor patio of the recently-opened Dungeness River Nature Center.
