Tucked in the hills of Greenbrier County sits a castle-esque enclosure where for four weekends out of the year, Hanlon-Lees Action Theater presents the West Virginia Renaissance Festival– a place where people can dress up in medieval fashion, don an old English accent and be transported in time to a land of kings, queens, fairies, jousting and more.
Country Roads, Episode Three takes listeners through the gates of the festival so they too can experience the magic of the Renaissance.
Listen as performers and actors share their stories. Ichabod Wainwright Master of Momentum- who spends the majority of his day performing feats of insanity on a 30-foot-tall Wheel of Death- discusses why he chose a life of full-time performing, how performing fulfills him and how he overcomes the physical and mental struggles of his “9 to 5.”
He may even share the secret as to why the West Virginia Renaissance Fair has been such a success.
Weave through the village- past the chickens, goats and pigs, the mermaid lagoon, and the many tents filled with food, drink and wares- with hosts McKenna and Gailyn as they take you to a time long past.
