Patrons and Performance

Suzanne R. Westfall

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the so-called Chapel Gentlemen and Children entertainment group in England during the reign of Elizabeth I. This group were deemed worthy competitors of the adult companies and they performed various acts including scriptural and secular plays and elaborate disguisings for their patrons. This chapter analyses the theatrical talents of the Chapel and the types of entertainment they performed and suggests that some techniques of the great household Chapel performance were absorbed into the interlude structure.
