  1. Revels

    Revels is a contemporary series of American seasonal stage performances, initially given at Christmas time as the Christmas Revels at Town Hall in New York City in 1957, which involve singing, dancing, recitals, theatrics, and usually some audience participation, all appropriate to the season. Performers are usually local, often non-professional, and frequently young. The events were founded by John Langstaff as Christmas entertainments and the present organization, Revels, Inc., produces events in ten cities across the United States, including many others in the spring and summer in many locations. Langstaff and his daughter Carol started producing "The Christmas Revels" again in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1971, at Harvard University's Sanders Theater, where it has frequently played to sold-out houses. Revels troupes are active across the United States, with four in the northeast region of the U.S.
