|Why Join Castle Wall?|
Would you like to be a part of the premeir live steel theatrical combat troupe in Colorado? Would you like to fight, die, and live to fight another day? Who would you side with; the forces of the tyrannical Prince John and the Sherrif of Nottingham, or the defiant and noble Robin Hood and the chivalrous knight Ivanhoe?
Castle Wall Productions has members that are male and female from age nine and above (our current oldest member is 67). Castle Wall Productions welcomes members from any background, talent, ethnicity, religion, and level of skill. Members can choose between multiple participation levels, such as full time, swing shift, auxillary, or extra, depending on time available, and desire to fight and/or act. In addition, non-fighting support members assist with a variety of tasks, such as photography, web management, sales/marketting, and other such tasks.
We train our members in theatrical choreographed combat with safety as the prime concern. Several of our weapon forms include English broadsword, axe, heavy weapons, short sword, dagger, staff, spear, shield, hand to hand, and stunts, both in and out of several types of armor. Our combat trainers are Castle Wall Certified in their respective areas of expertise and strive to train our members in the best possible live theatrical combat east of Hollywood.
Castle Wall Productions produces most of its own gear, and as such its members also have the ability to learn several medieval non-combative "lost arts" such as chain weaving, leather working, and several sewing techniques. As always, participation is on a volunteer basis, but strongly encouraged, as the contributions of our members are essential in order to create and maintain the equipment we need. Castle Wall also welcomes your particular talents, as we have a merchandising, public relations, fully certified medical, and a motorpool team.
Our group's full time members meet every Sunday, year-round, rain or shine, to practice at 11AM - 3PM, currently at Mission Viejo Park in Aurora CO, with individual teams meeting on unique schedules designed around their respective needs and members. As our show season comes closer, usually in April, all our members don full wardrobe for full practices, and get ready for our performances for the season.
Currently our main performances venues include the following:
OPUS Fantasy Arts Festival
Colorado Tartan Day
Elizabeth Celtic Festival
Highlands Ranch Scottish Games
Cherokee Strip Renaissance Festival (Arkansas City, KS)
Sioux City Riverssance
We do a number of other events throughout the season, such as birthday parties, demonstrations for the Boy Scouts of America, weddings, parades, company picnics, ethnic diversity gatherings, community service events, and church events.
