Bay Area Holiday Tradition, “The Christmas Revels,” Returns with its 28th Annual Musical Pageant, Dec 13-22 at Oakland Scottish Rite Theatre
SFEMS email subscribers are invited to purchase tickets to the 2013 Christmas Revels and receive a 20% discount off your purchase. This Year’s Revels, “The Spirits of Haddon Hall,” is set in an English country estate just after World War I. The Lord and Lady of the stately manor can no longer afford the cost of upkeep and the staff necessary to run it. As they make plans to sell their ancient home, the ghosts of past generations appear to celebrate the winter solstice one more time. Can they convince the current owners to find a way to remain in the Hall, or will this be their final Yuletide at Haddon?
Traditional music of the season abounds, along with joyous comedy, lovely costumes and country dancing. The 65-member cast includes adult and children’s choruses, a brass quintet, and the Deer Creek Morris Men. “The Spirits of Haddon Hall” preserves the long-ago winter traditions that join us together in humanity and community. Once again, eager audiences will play a part in welcoming the Yuletide.
