A letter from The Lost Boys:
- We do have a bit of disappointing news. We are sad to announce
that negotiations with the Carolina Renaissance Festival have broken
down for this year, and we, alas, will not be able to return for this
coming fall season. We do have every hope for the 2008 festival, and
in the meantime we're looking to book an all ages show in the
Charlotte area sometime this fall. Have no fear; we will be back in
some shape or form very soon... :End Lost Boys message.
Please remember that this is a family friendly faire and that the management has only recently become tolerant of rennies and the Guilds.
