Celebrate the season through music, dance, and drama. An eagerly awaited holiday tradition, the Christmas Revels returns with a show steeped in Irish music, dance and story-telling.
Join us aboard the RMS Carpathia as we share the hopes and dreams of families seeking a better life in America. These hardy souls engage us with foot-stomping jigs and reels, heart-pounding step dancing, and haunting harp music. Our spirited chorus of adults and children will capture your hearts and set the stage for the holidays! This year's Christmas Revels will draw you into the celebration with audience sing-alongs, Mummer's Play and Lord of the Dance. Popular local Irish musicians and award winning step dancers set your blood pumping and your heart singing!
Five performances: 7:00 PM on Dec 22, 23, and 27. 2:00 PM on Dec 23 and 26
Come 45 minutes early to hear a pre-show talk by the directors, telling you some context for this script and music.
