I first attended a Revels performance when I was a young girl. It was in Cambridge, MA, and I loved it. I loved the music, poetry, costumes, and dance. I resolved that somehow, some day, I would get to be involved.
How happy I have been that there is a Revels organization here in Vermont. The girls have been involved in the Summer Solstice celebrations since they were young.
Here is Liz singing her heart out on the summer solstice as part of the Revels cast.
Being part of the crew has been a fantastic experience for Helen. She has learned so much about what it takes to put on a performance. She's had to interact with a lot of great adults and teens, including some folks she met while on tour in Canada this summer. She's had to use her French with the guest performers who don't speak English. How do you say "hold your breath" in French, anyway? She also still gets to be on stage to sing for a couple of key songs.
