“Two Noisy Knights” Return to Evergreen Park for Show Saturday Night

Though the Annual Bristol Renaissance Faire is months away from opening in Wisconsin, the audiences in Evergreen Park can get a taste of the medieval comedy this coming weekend in the Performance Hall of the Evergreen Park Senior Center, 9547 S. Homan Ave.

“Two Noisy Knights” is performed by local residents Julius Fassl and Danny Sommers, who are mainstays at the summer festival and have created their own comedy team show of comedy, music and slapstick mayhem.  They will perform this show for the Evergreen Park Recreation Department Candlelight Theatre for one night only on the evening of Saturday, March 7 at 7:30 p.m.  

This is their second visit to Evergreen Park, as the show was originally performed to a packed house on Valentines Day, 2019.

Tickets for this 70-minute interactive Renaissance comedy experience are $12 for adults, and $10 for seniors/students. Kids under age 9 are admitted for $5. Though the Knights’ humor can be somewhat bawdy, they have created a very family-friendly show, and will encourage kids to join them on the stage after the show.

Tickets are available now at the Community Center, 3450 W. 97th St., which is your best idea in order to get priority table seating; or can be purchased at the Senior Center on the night of the performance.
