  • The fair features costumed characters, a “Punch and Judy” show, Cirque du Sewer Rat Circus, several vendors, belly dancing, Celtic music, archery, and unscripted jousting, General Manager Keith Waddoups said. It draws about 10,000 people to Troup during the eight weeks that it runs. Each weekend features a different theme while there is a school day open to any area schools that want to
    arrange a visit.
  • Owner Dustin Stephens used to be part of the Texas Renaissance Festival while Waddoups, who hails from England, had performed at various Celtic weekends. When Stephens decided to start a festival in East Texas, Waddoups asked if he needed any help.
    “We try to keep everything historically correct,” Waddoups said.
    The fair features an English court with King Henry VIII and his last wife, Catherine Parr. The 300-year-old “Punch and Judy” show is authentic as is the jousting, he said.
    “We do full contact jousting,” Waddoups said. “If you take a hit, you take a hit. It’s all real. Nothing is rehearsed.”

 Louise Mosrie is part of the new, young breed of Nashville songwriters making good waves in the music industry. Louise’s songwriting career began after college while living in Knoxville, where she produced two independent, pop/folk albums before moving to Nashville in 2004 to hone her song-craft.

Adept across many genres, she settled on Americana/folk as her most natural voice, ably demonstrated in Home, her most recent CD.
Drawing on the sensual imagery of the Deep South, Louise’s songs are filled with deep feeling and uncommon description conveying a world of lush detail and wide-open emotion. Compared to songwriters Nanci Griffith, Lucinda Williams and Patty Loveless, Louise has been also been dubbed “William Faulkner with a guitar.”
Further kudos include New Folk winner at Kerrville in 2009, second place at Telluride in 2011, and Emerging Artist at Falcon Ridge in 2011..

Complete with vampires, werewolves, mummies and damsels in distress, the laughs erupt in this side-splitting spoof of horror movies, classic literature, Victorian melodrama, Hitchcock and the conventions of theatre itself.
