Mission: Out of the Woodwork Productions is an all volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit organization that produces the Virginia Renaissance Faire annually.We pride ourselves on the quality of our educational entertainment, what we fondly call edutainment. We have found that students who attend our seminars and performances retain what they've learned and pass it on to others. By telling the story in a live interactive fashion and guiding each student through the creation of a personal "character" in our focus time period, the student begins to think and experience life as a person from that time. Suddenly, history is now and real. Social Studies is your daily interactions with your neighbor, your employer, your Sovereign. This is the magic of Out of the Woodwork's educational mission. We believe that once a student feels the magic, it can ignite the flame of curiosity for other periods in history or even different present-day cultures.There are numerous ways to partake in this mission and help history come to life.

I love VARF - The Virginia Renaissance Faire does it's best to entertain and education me everytime I do. It's hard to think that they do such a good job considering no one gets paid. For five weeks they brighten up lives with their play.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

are second to none - they time and effort they put in is phenomenal.
