Summary: The Harlot Queens were founded in 2017 by veteran Renaissance Faire performers looking to create an act that included music, games, and physical comedy. We have performed at several faires in New England, and we also have been featured nationally online including on the Digital Renaissance Faire. We are available for both public and private events.
Who are The Harlot Queens? We are a troupe of performers who perform unique 30-40 minute “bawdy" shows. Our performances center around singing in harmony backed by instrumental or percussion accompaniment, while incorporating a partially scripted, fully hilarious show all about our Queenly attempts (mostly failed) at love. We specialize in audience participation and impromptu fan interactions. We are at our best when we are in the tavern!
What's a bawdy show? "Bawdy" is defined by Merriam-Webster Dictionary as "boisterously or humorously indecent." These shows are geared towards adults, but not overtly risqué or inappropriate in case there are kiddos nearby.
Do you perform non-bawdy shows? Yes! We have shows featuring traditional music that are family friendly. We customize our shows based on your needs to be either very tame or very wild - we even specialize in after-dark shows!
