Montague Renaissance Faire Seeks Talent

Mutton and Mead, Montague's Medieval Festival, seeks Actors, Singers, Dancers, Minstrels, and other creative types at an audition and open house on Sunday, January 23rd, 2011, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Montague Grange hall, for "THIEVES OF HONOR" a Robin Hood-themed Renaissance Faire to be held on June 18th in Turners Falls, MA.

Actors should come with a two-minute monologue and be prepared to participate in some improvisational activities. Not looking for a major role? We are also seeking extras for "depth and color" and will provide training. If you sing or play an instrument please bring it and a song to present.

Not an actor, but still interested in helping bring our medieval village to life? Mutton and Mead is also seeking volunteers, crafts-people, merchants, theater crew, designers and carpenters, independent acts, interns and staff. Just contact us or stop by on audition day. There are several Managerial spots available as well, for those who like to work on these types of events.

Are you some other creative type? Our hope is that Mutton and Mead will provide a venue for the community. We welcome your ideas on how we can make that happen. We hope to see you or hear from you too.

Auditions and Open house to be held at the Montague Grange hall, 34 Main Street, Montague Center, on Sunday, January 23, 2011, from 10:00 AM through 4:00 PM.

Inviting all New Salem residents to share their accomplishments with the town!
This year on Old Home Day July 18th, we will be displaying photographs of what our townspeople, young and old, have accomplished.
An accomplishment could be a youngster who has learned how to ride a bike, a teenager who has fashioned a dove-tailed box, or a grandmother who has finished a quilt.

Please forward us a photograph of your accomplishment by mailing it to:
Old Home Day Committee,
19 South Main Street, New Salem, 01355
Or by e-mailing it:

Be sure to include:
· your name
· a description of your accomplishment (15 words or less)

In July, we will announce a local Accomplishment Photographing Station. If you don’t have your own camera, we will have a photo booth with assistants available for you.
We hope you will join us!
