The Summer Revels
Come sing, dance and make merry as together we celebrate the light!
June 18, 2016 on the Norwich Green
The Summer Revels is taking us to a traditional circus, with ringmaster Nils Fredland leading a variety of acts, as well as the audience, in a celebration of summer and the longest day of the year!
The Norwich Green opens at 5:30 p.m. with giant puppets and roving performers, craft activities, and food stalls selling locally-produced fare. At 7:00 p.m., the bugle will sound and the Summer Revels performers will parade in to begin the show! The audience will be encouraged to participate in the almost theatre-in-the-round performance and truly be a part of the festivities. There will be group singing and a lot of dancing–clogging, broom dancing, and even Morris dancing to “Take Me Out to the Ballgame”. A Mummer’s Play will add to the theatrics, and we will end the evening with performers and audience members alike singing and dancing as the sun goes down.
The Summer Revels is a free, family-friendly event.
The Summer Revels is an excellent opportunity for community members to participate in a Revels North production! Each year, we look for singers of all ages and abilities. No audition required; registration begins in April, and rehearsals happen weekly throughout the month of June.
