Newcastle is the West Coast's premier historic dance troupe, featuring stylish and exciting presentations of traditional Elizabethan country and Morris dance, in full costumes. Now in their third "generation", they have been performing at the Renaissance Faires of Southern and Northern California since 1974. A rustic band of merry musicians playing on period instruments brings the authentic sound of Elizabethan revelry into the 21st century.
