The Christmas Revels, a winter-solstice celebration of folksong and dance, began 39 years ago this season–long enough in the past that some kids who sang in the first Revels productions have appeared later on stage as adults, while others have seen kids of their own join the chorus. For years, extended families have made the show an annual pilgrimage; friends in the audience return each December to the same rows and seats, organize reunions beforehand at the same restaurants, or go out afterward to the same coffee shops. Originally designed to celebrate authentic, communal traditions, the Revels by now has itself become an authentic, communal tradition in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

There will be 16 performances of the 40th annual Christmas Revels from December 17 through 29, including seven afternoon shows.
