Volunteer at Revels

Revels’ corps of active volunteers help in diverse areas — from building props for The Christmas Revels, to helping with special events, to office mailing parties and computer data entry. Revels volunteers gave over 16,000 hours of their time to Revels in 2019. THANK YOU. We couldn't do this without you!
