With their annual Renaissance Fair is interrupted by contractors from the Department of Buildings, a troupe of intrepid re-enactors use what little time they have to mount their best fair ever including an archery contest, juggling jesters, a jousting match and not one, but three rivaling queens. They manage to save one lost little boy, but can they save the future of the Renaissance fair? The fourth wall is merely implied in this family show where donuts are served up along with the fun. (Comedy with music.)
