The Christmas Revels
An English Celebration of the Winter Solstice
SAVE THE DATE! December 21-23, 2019
NEW LOCATION! Lebanon Opera House, Lebanon, NH
It is December 26th in a small town in Northern England at the height of the Industrial Revolution. Workers at the textile mill are enjoying the last hours of their Christmas holiday. The factory owner, none-to-pleased with the celebratory mood, brings his workers back to the reality of their lives inside the factory walls. Despite his controlling presence, the workers are hopeful and resilient. Helped along by the hands of Fate, their ability to celebrate life’s beautiful moments prevail in the 45th Christmas Revels.
Join us for the first time at historic Lebanon Opera House in Lebanon, NH, for a raucous, romantic, and inspiring celebration, with all of the pageantry and tradition that defines The Christmas Revels. Audience singalongs, children’s singing games, a mummers play, the mysterious Abbots Bromley Horn Dance, and Susan Cooper’s poem “The Shortest Day” will weave together with an engaging story of struggle and the strength of the human spirit in this original production by Revels North.
