Meet the Wenches
Will Wash for Food
* 2003 schedule to be determined. Keirra is giving birth (again)
so we'll see how that goes before planning our new season. Meanwhile,
Sheila has made the first partial wWw appearance at a Siouxland
Renaissance Association event and we
Although nothing is set in stone until the laundry line
is up, here is a list of places we think you might be
able to find the wenches in 2002*. In most cases, the events
ones the wenches performed at last year. They might not get invited
back this year (or, more likely, their egos will be so swelled
won't accept the gig without their own private dressing room)
so don't just show up expecting to see them without first writing

because you just have to see the wenches ;-) (Hey, it
All appearances listed below are tentative and subject to change!
(In some cases, the event listed may not even know we want to
perform there yet...)
"pending acceptance" means we have auditioned/applied
but have not heard back yet.
"we plan to audition" means we plan to audition.
"Huzzah!" means they have contacted us and told
us they will be sending us a contract. THIS DOES NOT GUARANTEE
we will be there.
"contract received" means we've received a contract
and, barring any unforeseen circumstances, we will be there.
Private corporate event (Festivals
Downtown - Des Moines, IA
(This was an evening themed party where John-Paul handed out
flowers while the wenches mingled and got men in trouble.)
Script writing and promo pictures. (No snow! Go figure...)
More script writing and rehearsals. (Still no snow...)
Dress rehearsals. Most likely without any snow. What a winter!
Huzzah! (contract received): 11-12
St. Louis Renaissance Faire

just a short drive outside of St. Louis, MO.)

Sioux Falls, SD

seem to really "get it" when it comes to throwing
a great event. We have good expectations from them, and are
looking forward to performing there.)
PG-13 Stage: Both days at 11am, 12:30pm, 3:15pm
(contract received): 22-23
Q-Pond Park - Osceola, IA

they are indoors with air conditioning. Wanna
13-14: Willa, John-Paul and maybe Sheila will be visiting
Great Lakes Renaissance Faire in Ironwood, Michigan.
Over the next months we also plan to visit Bristol, Shakopee
and Kansas City.
Too hot. (And I'm not just talking about Sheila...)

Still too hot, so we wouldn't mind some indoor gigs.

|| Huzzah! (contract received):
31-1-2 (Labor Day Weekend)
Iowa Renaissance Festival & Harvest Faire
Middle Amana Park - Amana Colonies, IA

some of the best crowds and tips at any festival we've attended.)
|Huzzah! (contract received):
28-29 (two days this year!)
Richmond Hill Park - Geneseo, IL
(This was an excellent one day event last year, and this year
they are expanding to a full weekend. Huzzah!)
Huzzah! (contract received):
River Renaissance Faire
Hancock Memorial Park - Hancock, IA
(This is a brand new event. Mistress Willa is the merchant
coordinator, and John-Paul is the entertainment director.
But that had nothing to do with the wWw being hired. Really!)
Too cold. Must eat turkey.
Off for the holidays.
