Captain J.P. Boyd (legendary pirate) is played by Allen Huffman.
Allen Huffman attended his first renaissance festivals in Texas back around
1980. These unique visits to the Texas Renaissance Festival and Scarborough
Faire would help foster an active passion towards all things
Allen has worked his way up from being a patron to playtron, and from
merchant (roaming rose vendor) to performer. He spent several seasons as a
street character and performing with the Washer Well
Wenches at regional events such as: Iowa Renaissance
Shakespearean Festival, Renaissance Faire of the Midlands, Greater
St. Louis Renaissance Faire, A Renaissance Affaire, Wybreg
Village Renaissance Festival, Upper
Great Lakes Renaissance Faire, Salisbury
Faire, Nishna River Renaissance Faire, My
Waterloo Days Renaissance Faire, and others. He has also visited and
photo-documented events such as the Kansas City Renaissance Festival, Hamlet
of Slater, Hamlet of Mid-Missouri, and Jubilee
College Old English Faire.
In addition to performing, Allen has helped organize and operate several
festivals, and he started AtTheFaire.com,
a Midwest renaissance festival news and information website that gets tens
of thousands visits each month. There
he hosts 20,000 digital photos he has taken at festivals in the region. He
also designs, maintains, and hosts over 50 renaissance related websites, including
several festival sites.
When not roaming around pretending to be a funny pirate, Allen works as a
consultant for computer software companies.
