Elizabethan "Star Wars" adds fun to Walla Walla ren faire.

For 44 years, players, dancers and merchants have gathered on the campus of Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington for the Annual Whitman College Renaissance Faire. Alfred Diaz of the Union-Bulletin has the story. (photo)

A highlight of this year's faire was a production of three scenes from a Shakespearean version of Star Wars: A New Hope, both in iambic pentameter and using the vernacular of the period. “We acquired a copy of it and thought it was a really fun script,” Cole-Jansen said, explaining that a week of rehearsal wouldn’t allow for them to perform entire play.
