SEPTEMBER 3Abbots Bromliad (People’s Park, Tacoma – 1:30 to 2:45pm)  Dancing with antlers—FREE! All ages! People who come to The Christmas Revels are fascinated (or mystified!) by the Abbots Bromley Horn Dance.  So we join the California Revels  and have a Bromliad. Come learn the dance and participate in it. Or bring a penny whistle, recorder or fiddle and play the tune. We’ll teach the steps and general concept. Bring your own (branches can make pretty good antlers – look around your yard). Or just bring a picnic and watch. We’ll provide musicians and a caller. We’ll also play some fun games and sing some rounds.

We’ll sing fun songs various places on the bridge and wrap up with a few lovely rounds in the amphitheater beside the History Museum. Bring a lantern if you want. We’ll light them as the sun sets. Beautiful.

The Christmas Revels – December 15 – 19, 2018   Rialto Theater, Tacoma

A mid-winter Celebration of Traditional Music, Dance, and Drama

This year, we’ll be celebrating in a rural English village where the doings of the wee folk – fairies, hobs, brownies and such – were part of everyday life. They could be helpful and kind or mischievous, or downright troublesome. Caught in their world, it takes magic to escape…  Join us for such an adventure.

Expect singing, dancing, and storytelling. Expect beauty, mystery, and hilarity. Bring family and friends to this lively concoction of folk tradition and high art that plays to sell-out audiences of all ages from all over the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
