First Annual Renaissance Revel at The Bashful Peacock — Friday, April 25, 6:00pm — 9:00pm SLT

When daisies pied, and vio­lets blue, and lady-smocks all sil­ver-white, and cuck­oo-buds of yel­low hue do paint the mead­ows with delight,” it must be time for the First Annu­al Renais­sance Rev­el at The Bash­ful Peacock.We hon­our our broth­er and hero Willie Shake­speare on (or near) the anniver­sary of his birth. The three-hours rev­el of our stage begins at 6 pm. SLT on Fri­day, April 25. Tune in to the event on http://music.radioriel.org !

What­ev­er the facts of his life, Our Willie wrote words that haunt and inspire us still. He is the poet of love in all its infi­nite vari­ety: of lov­ing both a beau­ti­ful young man and a mys­te­ri­ous Dark Lady; of love for­bid­den, dared, won, and lost; of lovers con­fused and fick­le, loy­al and ruth­less. Across the stage of our minds march cross-dress­ing twins, con­niv­ing fairies, Ama­zon queens, and ass­es that can enchant the most pow­er­ful. And who can for­get those teen-aged drag queens trans­formed into strong, crafty, pow­er­ful women?

Music of and inspired by the Renais­sance will be spun by our Muse: Lady Soliel Snook of Radio Riel. The Great Lawn of The Bash­ful Pea­cock will be trans­formed into a Renais­sance Fairy Gar­den that nev­er was.

The Bash­ful Pea­cock is Caledon’s gath­er­ing place for ladies and gen­tle­men who pre­fer the com­pa­ny of ladies and gen­tle­men, respec­tive­ly. All of Caledon’s cit­i­zens and friends are wel­come at any time to enjoy our hos­pi­tal­i­ty.

The Bash­ful Pea­cock is locat­ed in the north­east cor­ner of Cale­don Well­sian. This SLURL (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Caledon%20W … 215/219/23) will take you to the region tele­hub, where you may fol­low the red bea­con over the moun­tains or take the library trans­port device avail­able at the hub. (We are locat­ed across from the Well­sian branch of the Cale­don libraries.)

So brush up your Shake­speare, grab your favorite lad or lass (or one of each), and dust off your cod­pieces and bodices, your tunics, jerkins, and Medici col­lars: come rev­el among friends with a hey-non­ny-heigh and a hey-non­ny-ho. And out in the moon­light, the fairies will be danc­ing.
