Note: Due to the school schedule of both Corwin and Virginia, their
availability for the 2011 season is extremely sparse. The majority of
the events will be done by Eric and Susan as was the usual in the traveling historical troups. Thanks!

Faire Wynds Players-Humanity At It's Best
Ye Olde Medicine Show and Flea Circus
or: The Doctor is REAL In!
Join us as we travel back to th Quack Doctors and Amazing Medicinal Cures of the past! We can ail what cures you...or something like that...Got worms? No problem! Got Eye Thrombosis? We got a cure! Got a need for something TOTALLY different? Then look over there at Virginia's Vermin-Yep, along with the cures and potions we have 6 HIGHLY TRAINED FLEAS! Ready to perform for Your Amusement! Your Amazement! Your Entertainment! and Our Contractual Obligations! So join us for a fun-filled famly show as Professor Chalmer's Bodkin-Childs' and his assistants present Ye Olde Medicine Show and Flea Circus or, The Doctor Is Real In!
This show-like all that we do-is a family comedy show. Not designed for children, not designed for adults-but designed so that everyone will enjoy it, and no-one will be worried that the little ones will get a better education than they get on TV!
The travelling entertainers were very much jacks of all trades, often performing for 3+ hours. We have designed a show that enables us to add and subtract different bits depending on the venue and other performers on site so as to be different, and to also enable us to perform multiple shows per day and not repeat our act. Another reason for the patrons to stay longer!
In the show we can offer fire manipulation, magic, mentalism, contorting, big and small illusions, circus arts, music and more.
Who remembers the words?
Virginia's Vermin and her Amazing Flea Circus
6-Count 'Em-6 Highly Trained Fleas for your Pleasure And Amusement!
FLEAS that BREATHE FIRE! FLEAS that lift HUNDREDS of times their OWN WEIGHT! Fleas that are FIRED from a CANON!
Introducing the Fleas
Preparing the Canon
Did I remember to say we were different from anyone else?
There were 27 different types of Doctors traveling around with the entertainers, we just aren't sure which ones we are!
We do use the audience for a lot of the bits, making sure that no-one is forced to join us, nor are they made to feel that they are the butt of any joke.
We cannot stress enough, however that we are a family show. All of our bits are appropriate for all age groups. Tho you might have to wake gramma up. We are not responsible for making her late for jell-o time back at the Home because YOU were having a good time!
Diagnosing the Problem
Selecting the Cure
Yep, this is one of our audiences...
Did I remember to say we'll perform for ANYONE???
So...what are you waiting for???
Hey, Hire Us!
Humanity At It's Best
or Arlequine's Nightmare
Most of the traveling troupes of the past were families, and this one is no exception. Consisting of Dad, Mom, Son and Daughter, they make up Faire Wynds Players. And between them, they are a prestidigitator, Ledgerdemain, Gully-Gully, Montebank, Equilibrilist, Conjuror, Charlatain, Jongoulier, Escompteur, Fakir, Samnimbulist, Musician, and Juggler.
Historical "Egyptian" Entertainments
The "Human Salamander"
Beginning of the show
So, what makes them different from all of the OTHER "danger", "fire", or "magic" acts out there? For one thing, they are a family. And as such, they do a family act. Their goal is to create a show that will be enjoyed by all age groupes-whether that is gramma and the kids, or a couple of cynical teenagers. We want the whole crowd to walk away feeling like they saw a good show!
Smile at the fat guy!
Striking a 'manly pose'
Preparing to walk up the swords.
Because the traveling shows lasted up to three hours long, when Faire Wynds performs at an event, they usually request 3-5 30-45 minute shows per day. Each show highlights different things, so that the audience sees something different each time. It keeps us fresh, the audience interested, and a reason for the public to stick around 'cause the next show is going to be different from the last! And between the acts, if a location is arranged, the glass harps are played for the passers-by in the street, helping to keep a festive aire-and us busy!
Thanks for watching!
So give us a call, and let us tell you more about Faire Wynds Entertainments and what we can add to your next event!
