The Christmas Revels
An English Celebration of the Winter Solstice
SAVE THE DATE! December 21-23, 2019
NEW LOCATION! Lebanon Opera House, Lebanon, NH
In a small town in Northern England at the height of the Industrial Revolution, workers at the textile mill are looking forward to their Christmas holiday. The factory owner, none-too-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 prevails 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.
Lebanon Opera House is located inside City Hall on the Lebanon Green at 51 North Park Street, Lebanon, New Hampshire, right off of Interstate 89 and only minutes away from Hanover. There is plenty of free parking on nearby streets and in the large public lots behind the theater, and several excellent restaurants within walking distance.
Save the date! Tickets go on sale in September, with advanced “Preferred Seating” sales starting August 27.
