2023 saw the Midwinter Revels go on tour for the first time in Revels North history! With our usual home, Lebanon Opera House, closed for renovations, we took the show on the road to three incredible theaters in NH and VT.

This year's Midwinter Revels show is a celebration of Revels North, past, present and future, all building up to our 50th anniversary in 2024. We explore songs from productions across our 49 year history, celebrate Revels traditions new and old, and most importantly celebrate our incredible community.

This show was recorded on Saturday 16th December 2023 at the Mascoma Valley Regional High School Auditorium and features our special guests Wheezer & Squeezer (Jeremiah McLane & Timothy Cummings) and narrator Chris Levey.

"We are thrilled to be taking The Midwinter Revels on tour this year. As we approach our 50th

anniversary next year, this is the perfect way to spread the Revels’ message of community and unity and share beloved cultural traditions. I want to thank the Revels artistic team, Alex Cumming, Sharon Groblicki, Laurel Swift and Alice Kaufman, for making this (ad)venture  possible. Of course, we would not be here at all without our wonderful audience! Thank you for attending our show and sharing this special experience with us. And thank you for supporting Revels throughout the year. Without our patrons we do not exist. Please keep Revels in mind as you contemplate the spirit of giving this season. Now, more than ever, we need your support to keep Bringing Traditions to Life. Happy Reveling to All!" - Julia Hautaniemi, Executive Director
