Revels Traditions Day
w/Community Potluck and Family Dance
Revels Traditions Day with Community Potluck and Family Dance July 9 East Thetford Pavilion 140 Pavilion Road East Thetford Starts at 2:30 p.m. Since its beginnings this past January, Revels Traditions has become a much-loved part of Revels North’s year-round programming, offering an opportunity to sing, play and perform for all ages in a relaxed atmosphere with folks who just like to make music or theater for the fun of it. Every season, Traditions Day pumps up the volume, adding a community potluck supper and family dance to round out an afternoon of music- and merrymaking! From 2:30-4, join in with Revels Singers, an impromptu chorus for experienced performers and shower singers alike. Led by Revels North Artistic Director Nils Fredland, Singers explores simple harmonies in the folk tradition, with and without accompaniment. After Singers, choose between the Band of Fools or Revels Mummers workshop. Bring any instrument you like to the Band of Fools--or choose from those on hand--to create a short repertoire of tunes for dancing and marching. If you don’t read music, that’s not a problem--the songs are learned by ear! For those of a more theatrical bent, head over instead to the Revels Mummers, who will have a script and props ready to put on a Mummer’s play! Directors Skip Cady and Danielle Cohen will bring their combined experience in stagecraft and showmanship to lead workshop members. At 5:30, we will all gather together for a community potluck supper before hitting the dance floor for a family dance! Revels Mummers and Singers will perform the pieces they’ve worked on during the dinner hour; the Band of Fools, with Chris Rua, will provide the music for all-ages dancing in the pavilion! Revels North provides opportunities for communities to connect, and we’d love to connect with you!
