Renaissance Festival

Visakha Ho, Staff Writer

On Oct. 9 and 10, the Rolla High School Choir performed at the Renaissance Festival in Kansas City.

“The Renaissance Festival is kind of just a thing where people get to dress up and walk around a renaissance-esque themed area. It’s really fun and I’m glad I get to do it,” junior, Hannah Holton, said.

The Choir performed a play about a King finding his son a Princess, but there is a twist involved.

“I play the villain. I think it’s a lot of fun. The best thing about performing is probably how people always laugh at our jokes or whatever. Or when people appreciate how well we can sing,” senior, Christina Woelk, said.

Not only do they perform, but also they also get to experience the Renaissance culture.

“We eat giant turkey legs and perform in a thousand degree heat or pouring rain. We do it all! There’s also the one stand that I always go to and make a candle every year.They also have jousts and parades and stuff. It’s really cool,” Woelk said.

Many more activities were available at the festival.

“If you ever get the chance to go to the Renaissance Festival in Kansas City, I highly suggest it because it’s a lot of fun!” Woelk said.
