After a 9 year hiatus, Greg returns for his 17th wonderful season at Mount Hope. Starting as a member of the acting company in 1989, Greg rose through the ranks even as he pursued an Equity acting career across the country.

Greg’s recent interests include sword cutlery, and blacksmithing.

Eitri Jones

Bends the elements to his will to make mad, beautiful creations.

Eitri made his first knifes and swords when he was but a young lad. After his first taste of the steel he was hooked, and soon took to learning welding and other forms of metal working. Eitri graduated from California University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Chemistry. Recently he has been giving blacksmithing demos at the New Jersey and Pennsylvania Renaissance Faires.

He is a builder and fixer, but mostly mad scientist. He likes to make beautiful powerful things. Slightly obsessed and always ready for a the next crazy project, we are never sure if he is drunk or just crazy.
