On Wednesday, November 6, 2013, the FHS Theatre Company Theatre II and III classes participated in the School Days event sponsored by the Texas Renaissance Festival. During this educational event, students are encouraged to step back in time as they enter an authentic recreation of a 16th Century English Village. Students were able to interact with King Henry VIII and his queen, as well as William Shakespeare and hundreds of other costumed characters representing the culture, art, science and literature of the Renaissance Period. In addition students had the opportunity to learn courtly dances, the ancient art of falconry, and the history of arms and armor. Artisans in period dress illustrated the technological advances of the Renaissance age through live demonstrations in pottery, glass blowing blacksmithing, armor making and other arts and trades of this amazing period. The Theatre I and II students were able to participate in the festival through performances of monologues, duets, and group scenes prepared in class for this event.
