Kit’s Interactive Theatre presents “The Colonial Faire”
Pennsylvania – 1730’s
Today is the day of the Colonial Faire! Servant Katie Cotswold invites the assistance of those around her to gather the dye for the wool, prepare the wool to be dyed (including carding) and make deliveries. On her travels she encounters various townsfolk including French trapper, Jean Claude Guillaume, tavern-keep, Mistress Reinhardt, and the Barnaby boys. Finally, she is off to the village square to partake in the Faire with a rollicking and colorful Maypole dance.
All activities are open to the public at no charge, thanks to a generous grant from the Cutco Foundation.
