The Christmas Revels

A Victorian English Celebration of the Winter Solstice

London, England, Christmastime, 1883...

When the holiday extravaganza planned for the city's fabled Crystal Palace is suddenly cancelled, friends of the hall's manager rally to save the day. Composer Arthur Sullivan, of Gilbert-and-Sullivan operetta fame, volunteers to assemble an orchestra, and four out-of-work street entertainers offer to stage a holiday "panto" version of the beloved fairy tale, "Cinderella."

Combine those elements with popular Victorian-Era Christmas carols and ballroom dances, parlour and music-hall songs, children's singing games and a Winter Solstice Mummers' Play, and you have Revels Houston's 2019 celebration of The Christmas Revels.

Come join us for this delightful Yuletide treat for the entire family!Read more
