The Royalty of the Renaissance

England - 1598  The Royalty of the Renaissance creates a glorious depiction of court life during Elizabethan England. 

Lady Celia Beaumont is betrothed to the Duke of Burgundy in France.  The night before her departure, the Queen throws a feast in her honor.  In attendance are Lady Celia's dear friends, The Earl of Essex and the Countess of Shrewsbury.  While their repast is being served, Queen Elizabeth's ascension to the throne and her royal lineage are recreated.  A majestic court dance using period music and dance techniques is taught and performed by Master Wessex (using audience members to portray the royal court dancers.)  Just after a Shakespearean sonnet beguiles the royal audience, the Queen knights a clever young squire who becomes the newest knight in Her Majesty's guard.

Lady Celia Beaumont - is a fictitious Elizabethan Lady-in-Waiting.  She speaks in the eloquent Elizabethan dialect of the Renaissance Era.  An extravagant blue velvet gown is worn with hoop, bum-roll and a ruff.  A jeweled headpiece and veil complete the elaborate hand crafted attire.
