The Krewe de la Renaissance Acadienne held its 9th annual ball at seven-thirty in the evening on Saturday, February 7, 2015 in the Hotel Acadiana Ballroom in Lafayette. The theme of the ball was “Hollywood on the Silver Screen”.
Reigning over the festivities were Krewe de la Renaissance Acadienne’s King IX, Troy Mitchell Noel, and Queen IX, Regina Richard Caillouet.
King Troy Noel is the son of Floyd and Millie Noel of Maurice. Troy was married for 15 years to the late Amy Brown Noel of Delcambre. Her parents are Jerry and Estelle Brown of Delcambre.
Troy currently resides in Mouton Cove and has three wonderful children, Jayde, Alex, and Brandon. Troy is employed by Rick’s Transportation, and he enjoys fishing, working cattle, and spending time with family and friends.
His queen, Regina Caillouet, is the daughter of Rickey and Darlene Richard. She is married to Will Caillouet and together they have two children, Amelie and Ella. Regina has been an educator in Vermilion Parish for the past twelve years and is currently a first grade teacher at Dozier Elementary.
Presenting the night’s program was Brian Campbell. Krewe members and their guests were the guests of the Academy of Motion pictures and watched as old Hollywood stars from Marilyn Monroe to Roy Rogers and even Shirley Temple graced the stage. Former kings and queens from Renaissance, as well as visiting royalty, were recognized as special guests for the evening.
The evening began as all of the night’s big stars were greeted by paparazzi, Brandon and Alex Noel. Big winners of the night were Lucille Ball and Ricky Ricardo, played by Stephanie Broussard and Larry Lee, while Best Comedy Sitcom went to The Honeymooners played by Steven and Michelle Caldwell and Karla and Barry Toups.

The award for Best Variety Act went to Abbott and Costello, played by Tommy Terrebonne and Coco Broussard, who performed the famous, “Who’s on first” skit. And because it’s not always glitz and glamour in Hollywood, the Krewe’s Westerners and Saloon Girls took us back to the Old Wild Wild West. Westerners and their Saloon Girls were played by Eric LeBlanc, Seth Comeaux, Scott Backstrom, Dewey Domingues, Alison Domingues, Tammy Comeaux, Jennie Mendoza, Kayla Lucas, Kristin Vincent, Becky Bares, Jessica Roy, Monique Terrebonne, Mike Young (Clint Eastwood), Al Mendoza (Roy Rogers), and Wayne Mouton (John Wayne).
The crowd was in for a real treat when the Best Comedy Trio award was presented to the Three Stooges played by Jason Roy, Blake Broussard, and Todd Lucas.
The finale of the evening included a toast to the new king and queen, followed by the traditional second line parade to Mardi Gras Mambo that was led by the king and queen as the royal court members threw beads and trinkets to the attending guests. Concluding the evening was live entertainment by the Beau Young Band.
