The Grand Melee

At the end of the first day of the PSCW, there is a special event: all the staff and students come together to collectively put together our Grand Melee.  Each year, we interpret a famous battle from history or literature, and in less than two hours put together a massive, sprawling piece of theatrical combat.  This year we are excited to announce the event will be...

Robin Hood'S Rescue

Robin of Locksley stands at the gallows, ready to hang as an outlaw and traitor.  Will his merry band of outlaws be able to save him from the rope and from the soldiers of nefarious Sheriff of Nottingham?


Come find out!

  • The Massacre at Paris
