#RevelsConnects Storytime

Gregory Maguire, author of Wicked, reads The Wild Washerwomen by John Yeoman and Quentin Blake.

Once upon a time there were seven unhappy washerwomen. They had far too much washing to do and the owner of the laundry, Mr. Balthazar Tight, was simply dreadful!

See what happens when these feisty washerwomen decide to escape from a very large pile of laundry and go on strike!

In 2004, Revels produced Benjamin Britten's opera Noye's Fludde with 116 local school children as the animals, a 40-piece youth orchestra, Paul Guttry as Noah, Lynn Torgove as Mrs. Noah and Revels founder John Langstaff as the Voice of God. Noye's Fludde is a retelling of the Old Testament story of the "Great Flood," with music set to the Chester Medieval Mystery Play. Costumes inspired by Vermont artist Mary Azarian.
