Reedfayre ’12: a play for peasants

The Reedfayre Play Setting: The year is 2012, and Reed College is concluding its centennial year of celebrations. The noble king Rex is desirous of a memorable finale and an auspicious beginning of a new century for his college kingdom.


Rex: Serve me up an event befitting the end of a glorious centennial year!


Humble (Alumni Relations) servants:  My Lord, here is a mere sampling, a taste of what is planned and what participants can expect at Reunions ’12: Reedfayre, May 30-June 3.

  • Decorate Reed’s first-ever Rose Festival Float–it will make Eleanor’s boat look most puny.
  • Feast on food and drink at Gastronomy Northwest: a showcase of foodie (and drinkie) Reedies. Pass the mead!
  •  Dance, tap, or simply relish the sweet sounds of all the Reed musicians who will share their talents.
  • Don a pair of lace-up boots and twirl around as Kaul Auditorium is magically transformed into a roller-skating palace.
  • Nourish your mind as Reed’s gentry gather and share their intellectual prowess in a multi-faceted Alumni College.
  • Partake in the parade of classes. Represent your class and/or cheer those who have come before or after in an energetic celebration.


And much more is planned, sire. Does his majesty approve? What are your entreaties?
