ages & across the globe.
Revels brings together people of all ages and backgrounds through musical and theatrical celebrations of our world’s cultural and seasonal traditions. We believe that songs and stories passed down through the generations embody a collected wisdom that illuminates the past and informs the future. Join us as we celebrate our diverse world through inspiring performances, educational programming, and community participation.
Everything is top notch, from the costumes, to the music selections, the audience participation and the theater itself – so beautiful. This was our first year, we traveled quite a ways to experience it. I can say without a doubt this will now be part of our family holiday traditions. We loved the diversity of the cast as well as the audience – young and old, old school conservative as well as liberal, edgy and alternative.

Revels exemplifies the power of good ideas not contained! By creating its own annual custom, Revels has found a unique way to celebrate the seasonal rituals of the world … to my family, the celebration has become tradition wrapped in tradition

Both my husband and myself were so impressed by the performance Revels put together with our 4th graders. I was so touched, especially when they were singing in Chinese, and I broke into tears. As an immigrant myself, I really appreciate these efforts in helping our kids find their roots and appreciating the diversity our society has.
Thank you so very much for getting me to sing out very loud to my three cats…who didn’t seem to mind at all! What a joyful and informative evening. Thank you for your hard work and persistence with organizing these virtual events!

Tickets are on sale NOW for all live performances of the 51st annual Christmas Revels!
This year, our celebration takes place in the present day at the George and Dragon, a 17th-century English pub famous for its annual Christmas carol party and saved from economic extinction by an American couple. Sadly for the carolers, last year’s celebration had to be canceled due to the pandemic. As Christmas approaches, plans for a new party are being made – with unexpected help from visitors from the past who have some definite ideas on how the festivities should go.
Join us this December as we joyfully celebrate the return of the light!
