The ancient Canton of Elvegast in the magnificent Barony of Windmasters’ Hill is hosting Performers’ Revel South again!

Workshop Descriptions:

  • Taking the Teeth Out of Stage Fright – Many performers have stagefright, so how do you deal with it? We have some answers.
  • Improvisation Theater Games – Many games are just silly fun and some can actually help you develop your character!
  • Stagecraft Workshops – Voice projection, movement on stage, motivation. Very good concepts to practice for anyone who likes to perform in the SCA so people can hear you in court, in feast, and whenever you want to be heard!


Other activities:

  • Performance Review and Critique upon request
  • Performing Arts Resources Library and Online Search Guidance – Some Very Experienced Performers will be bringing large boxes of resources and materials for anyone to find new material or find documentation for period informed performances!  At least one computer will be there with easy links to online resources.  Want to perform something in the SCA that you can say “Yes! It’s period!”  Come on down here to get help finding your material! Research materials for period performance and consultation with Efenwealt and other Subject Matter Experts.
  • Barring health challenges or Murphy’s Law preventing it, Mistress Dervila will be available for private consultation with individual performers between 4-5:00 or by appointment. Since the site is small, you can find her on the day of the event to decide on a good time of day to chat. Performers will benefit most  when they bring a piece to work on and some specific questions. All levels of Performing Artists are encouraged to meet Dervila regardless of what they’re working on.


This is a donation based event with no set site fee. Donations to help pay for our $200 site rental fee gratefully accepted.

Please email Baroness Sophia the Orange with any questions, concerns, or requests via orangesophie AT gmail DOT com. See you there!
