The Christmas Revels 2011 will transport audiences to Medieval England for an engaging and participatory show filled with music, spectacle and delight. Our festive new show will bring audiences the wonderful music, dance and traditions of Medieval and Renaissance England, delightfully presented within an accessible narrative rooted in historic tradition.
The Christmas Revels show guarantees fun for all ages in a colorfully costumed audience-interactive pageant full of cultural history and traditions. The “King and the Fool” script takes audiences to a wonderful winter feast in the castle of a King who might be King Henry V returned from his great victory at Agincourt in 1415. There is much merriment and festive entertainment, especially headed up by the Kings’ Fool, who tests the king’s patience while uproariously usurping the royal role.
Cultural traditions dictate that life is topsy turvy at the medieval solstice and so the King must put up with the insubordination. An auditioned 60-person chorus, plus the Portland Brass Quintet.
