Santa Barbara Revels Presents: The Christmas Revels: An Irish Celebration of the Winter Solstice

December 20, 2014 from 2:30pm - 7:30pm

The Christmas Revels:

An Irish Celebration of the Winter Solstice


For our seventh annual production, we invite you to join our group of intrepid Irish emigrants on a voyage between the Old World and New World. In December of 1907 on the S.S. Furnessia, our of Londonderry and bound for New York, the passengers aboard feel a combination of nostalgia and eager anticipation. Leaving behind loved ones and everything they have known for the challenges ahead, they take comfort and joy in sharing the warm and melodious music, lively dances, and engaging stories of their native country. They celebrate their rich culture and heritage as they embark on their adventures as Celtic Pioneers. This imaginative, entertaining theatrical production is a favorite Santa Barbara tradition for all ages.
