The Christmas Revels®

THE CHRISTMAS REVELS®, a musical and theatrical celebration of the winter solstice, returns to Tacoma’s Rialto Theater for six performances in December. Set in Victorian England, this 16th Christmas Revels® invites us into a world of wondrous and worrisome new technologies; a world in which time is money due to the telegraph’s quick relay of information; a world of great riches and deep poverty. Sound familiar? Through catchy music hall songs, a comic rendition of A Christmas Carol, a mummers play and sword dance, authentic costumes, magnificent Victorian anthems, familiar carols, children’s stories, songs and more, the production offers a joyous and timeless celebration for all ages.

Local actor Tony Curry joins the cast, which also includes the Good Christmas Cake Revels Singers, the Ha’penny Children, the Utterly Too Orchestra, the Seattle Brass Ensemble AND a man of mystery who before our very eyes exchanges a man’s small selfish heart for a heart that shines with kindness!

The Christmas Revels® is a seasonal gift to the community comprised of song, dance, magic, foolery and a splash of audience participation. The celebration seems to re-enliven the essence of long ago communities as it weaves the past into the present for our audiences, who gather together from all parts of the Pacific Northwest.
