The Christmas Revels Festival
Come dance with daffodils, play with puppets, and lend your voice to our chorus as we present “Lighted Candles in the Winter Trees,” December 17-19 at Colburn Park in Lebanon, NH, a free performance that is part of The Christmas Revels Festival.
This year’s show is presented entirely outdoors at Colburn Park. We’ll have a mainstage event at 4 pm and 5:30 pm each day, preceded by sideshows that include a band of roving singers, jugglers, storytellers, mummers and dancers, and concluding with a display of the fire organ.
Our mainstage show is a collaboration between Revels North and No Strings Marionette Company. This show brings to life some familiar (Dona Nobis, Lord of the Dance) and new (Bells of Norwich) music of the Revels canon through images and puppets brought to life by the No Strings Marionette Company. We’ll pass the wassail bowl, ring out the bells, dance Lord of the Dance and harness the power of the dragon to fight for the good of all.
Meet the Jack Langstaff puppet created for last year’s film version of the Christmas Revels, All Shall Be Well Again, along with a host of other characters created by the No Strings Marionette Company. The show is narrated by the Revel North chorus, providing all the vocals through song.
