The Golden Vanity

Skit Synopsis

A young sailor volunteers to sink an enemy ship, but what happens after he successfully completes his mission?

This traditional, fictional song was popular through the 1600s. It has many variations in the text.  Sometimes Sir Walter Raleigh is depicted as the hero and other times, the villain.

While the soloist performs, actors seamlessly move through the scenes using freeze pantomime or pantomime to tell the story.  This is a fantastic piece that always grabs the audience!
