Christmas Revels 2021 

 Harvard currently has plans in place to fully reopen in the fall. Due to these glad tidings, we fully expect that The Christmas Revels will return to Sanders Theatre for in-person, live performances this December! We remain in close communication with Harvard and will keep you informed should anything change. In the meantime, we are planning our 51st annual Christmas Revels accordingly, including auditions in September.

Christmas Revels Chorus Audition Dates & Times:

Sunday, September 12, and Monday, September 13 (4-6pm children, 7-9:30pm adults), at 80 Mt. Auburn Street, Watertown.

A second location and date TBA

While Revels uses a number of professional performers in its productions, its volunteer choruses, adults and children, are at its core. There is no "standing" Revels production chorus; we audition each cast anew and encourage adults and children of diverse backgrounds to try out for the production. 

Audition Requirements for Children

Children's auditions for The Christmas Revels for the 2020 season will be held Sunday, September 12, and Monday, September 13, 2021, from 4 to 6pm, at The Belmont-Watertown Methodist Church (formerly St. John's), 80 Mt. Auburn Street, Watertown, MA 02472.

The age range for the children's chorus is generally 7 through 12. We try to get a range of ages, heights, personalities and "looks," just as we do in the adult chorus. We ask children to sing either "Happy Birthday," "America the Beautiful" or "Silent Night." These need not be sung from memory; we will have word sheets on hand, but memorization is encouraged!

Returning Children's Chorus Members: We want as many children as possible to have the experience of being in a Revels, so children who have never been in The Christmas Revels will generally be given priority over those who have. The directors may make exceptions to this guideline as they see fit.
