the midwinter revels a solstice celebration photoThis year’s production will be performed live at Sanders Theatre December 16 – 28 and will be followed by a virtual encore streaming option!

Our 52nd annual Midwinter Revels takes us into the past to a time and place of great change in American history – Ellis Island of the 1920’s. A point of entry to the New World for many immigrants, Ellis Island was a place where many peoples and cultures came together from all over the world…

A holiday tradition for nearly five decades, The Christmas Revels is a joyful theatrical celebration of the winter solstice that travels the world each year showcasing cultural traditions including music, dance, folktales and rituals.

The Christmas Revels performance lasts about 2.5 hours.

3-starInclusive Mish-mash Of Cultures
On December 12, 2009 the showing at 3 PM was amusing after several decades of not going. As a child memories were quite different and much more Northern European with the old familiars from the second half of the Christmas Revels. Still though there was that sense of community through the rough and tumble. The group has gotten larger though it seems the audience has become more select. I remember looking up as a child, but now as an adult I am looking down from the Balcony and bringing all sorts of other experience to the tried and true. I still found it quite amusing, though not what I expected. This is defintitely for those with hearts of children. Heart warming and down-to-earth I find my soul resounding in the new generation of faces in this place, that once was my playground, now the beat turns to an attentive diverse crowd as is the stage players.
