Olympic Theatre Arts’ “Kings, Queens, and Royal Scenes Renaissance Faire,” is set for noon-5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 21-22. Tickets can be purchased ahead of time on the OTA website (olympictheatrearts.org) or at the event: adults $12, members $10, and children $5.

Producer/director Richard Stephens said that event will be, “all outside, a true English country faire.” Activities and fun are offered for a “bit of coin”: Attendees can use their credit card in conjunction with a numbered medallion to make purchases, or they can buy a bag of coins for $5 each, four in a bag.

On Aug. 9, organizers, including Richard Stephens, director, of OTA’s “Kings, Queens and Royal Scenes Renaissance Faire” touch base at the end of a day of preparation at Olympic Theatre Arts in Sequim. They are surrounded by potential costumes for auxiliary actors to choose from to wear as they participate in the OTA’s Renaissance Faire. Sequim Gazette photo by Emily Matthiessen
