As conspiracies are common at Court, His Majesty’s men are attempting to ferret out other schemers.

Join the Adventure: Save the King! Help Captain Wolfe by participating in the King’s Crusade Interactive Game, asking members of our cast for clues to solve the intrigue! Ask for more information at the House of the Three Sisters, located next to the O’Malley Stage. The sisters will explain the King’s Crusade Interactive Game and Award Prizes to those who participate, when your Crusade is completed. Why we do what we do.
