About California Revels

Location:

2501 Harrison Street, Suite U8, Oakland, CA 94612, US

Mission Statement

The mission of California Revels is to promote the celebratory and community building power of the performing arts through a unique and innovative form of musical theater that embraces diverse cultures and ritual traditions to connect an audience of many ages and varied backgrounds.

Description

Since 1986, California Revels has brought the unique theatrical, participatory arts-form founded by singer, author, and music educator John Langstaff in Cambridge, Massachusetts, more than twenty-five years ago to the audiences of the Bay Area. Crossing religious and ethnic boundaries and appealing to young and old alike, Revels blends traditional music, dance, ritual and folk plays, presented by a large volunteer chorus of children and adults drawn from the community, and a number of highly talented professional actors, musicians, artists, directors, and "bearers of tradition" from many cultures.

Every December, California Revels produces "The Christmas Revels," a joyous production welcoming the return of the light back from the darkness of winter. Decorating homes with lights for midwinter, for example, is an ancient ritual for "calling back the light" that predates Christmas by centuries. "The Winter Solstice falls on the shortest day and brings on the longest night of the year. Across the centuries, people have chosen this time to acknowledge and celebrate the cycle of light and darkness, good and evil, life and death, that governs all our lives."

Throughout the year, California Revels holds a series of community-based performances, celebrating the seasons and highlighting our professional actors in musicians in more intimate settings.
