Lolly contributed to many facets of the faire community throughout her years on the circuit. Angus and the Kilt, written by Lolly and Betsy Smith as WenchWorks, has become a staple of many festival acts. Lolly played queen at the Arizona, Minnesota, and Carolina Renaissance Faires and has many a loyal subject. She has retired from her role as Queen to pursue a Master of Fine Arts in Acting at Minnesota State University and, in her first year, placed 36th of 400 nominees at the Region V Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival. Our best wishes to Lolly as she pursues her dreams.
