Please help make The Christmas Revels
available to all in 2020!
In 2020, Revels North is producing a short film that will keep the annual Christmas Revels tradition alive for our audience. All Shall Be Well Again will be a surprising, entertaining, and safe alternative to the live production. Revels North will provide a range of ways for people to view this film in their homes, including for free through local media resources such as CATV and on social media platforms such as Facebook. We recognize that many families have felt severe financial hardship due to COVID-19, so creating free opportunities to view The Christmas Revels will help bring joy to their holidays. Our vision is for this film to appeal to people who have never attended The Christmas Revels before and want to get a sense of why it has been an Upper Valley tradition for 45 years, and for the film itself to become a new holiday tradition in our community for years to come.
You can support the creation of this film and help make it available to all through a crowdfunding sponsorship or a business sponsorship. Please support us by October 19, and your name or the name of your business will be included in the credits of All Shall Be Well Again!
“My husband Peter and I, along with daughters Natalie (12) and May (7) moved to the Upper Valley from Miami in 2017. We didn’t know anyone here; didn’t know how to find our place. It was especially hard on Natalie, who found it hard to make new friends, and felt like she wasn’t good at anything. But she liked to sing and wanted to try Revels. Peter joined, too, to support her.
"They have been with Revels ever since, and it has been transformative for them both. As Natalie put it, “Revels was the first place I ever had a feeling of community,” and May added, “It’s something that I thought Sissy could never do, but she could, and she’s amazing at it!” Peter not only found a welcoming and open-hearted community, but was able to rediscover a love of music and theater that he’d not engaged with since high school. Now, after joining to support Natalie, it has become a central part of his life, too. He will be playing Mr. Wigglesworth in this year’s Christmas Revels.
"The Revels is a real treasure for the Upper Valley—I’ve never known another group like it—and has been a treasure for our family.”
