Performing Company

The Scarborough Academy of Performing Arts

SAPA (Scarborough Academy of Performing Arts) is Scarborough’s non-profit performing company that trains the actors that portray our Royal Court, Villagers, and Peasants. They go through 8 Saturdays and Sundays of classes prior to Scarborough Renaissance Festival’s opening and then entertain our guests for another 8 weekends of the festival. Many of the performers also do programs for schools, libraries, and other organizations year around.

Due to COVID restrictions and in the interests of participant safety, Scarborough Renaissance Festival will not be adding any new members to the SAPA cast for 2021. We will still have a fantastic show and please check back with us again in November 2021 for the audition announcement for the 2022 season.

Performers at the Festival wear a medallion bearing the symbol of the season.

This medallion will allow you, our guests, to distinguish the performers from the visitors.
