SwordPlayer New Member Workshop

The Sterling SwordPlayers are looking for new members for our troupe. This year we will be performing a new selection called, The Riddle, featuring a queen, many noble knights, and a fearsome dragon. We will be performing at Scottish Festivals, European Festivals, and Assisted Living Communites across the region. There is no experience necessary for we will be conducting a workshop to teach you what you need to know. The workshop will be conducted on two days:

  • April 25 from 9:00 am-Noon in the Gazebo of the Sterling Community Center
  • May 2 from 10:00 am-1:30 pm in Room B at the Cascades Public Library in Potomac Falls

The workshop will focus on basic sword play and some unarmed maneuvers. The cost is $15/person. Payment can be made through PayPal, Check (made out to the Sterling Playmakers), or cash.
We look forward to seeing you there.

Sterling Swordplayers is an organization of Sterling Playmakers created and maintained for the purpose of performing stage combat performances for entertainment or historical recreation. Professionally trained in the art of stage combat and theater, the Swordplayers combine sword play with comedy, providing fun entertainment for families and children of all ages. If you are not careful you might just learn a thing or two about sword play and history from one of the troupe’­s performers! Sterling Swordplayers offers unique entertainment for the whole family. Our activities are centered around our Sword Fighting shows, which many across the State of Virginia have enjoyed.
