Summer Solstice Greetings
from Santa Barbara Revels!


Santa Barbara Revels engages today’s audiences in theatrical and musical experiences that bring the world’s cultural traditions and celebrations to life.


As the weather warms and the days become longer, we watch the sun’s path rise higher and higher above the horizon. When the sun reaches its highest point in the sky, we gather to celebrate the longest day of the year: the Summer Solstice.

Here at Santa Barbara Revels, we're looking far ahead to the very shortest day of the year, when we present our annual production of The Christmas Revels: In Celebration of the Winter Solstice. For this year's 10th anniversary, we are crafting a new and original show set in the mid-1830s during Santa Barbara's Rancho period. We will join Richard Henry Dana, author of the classic book Two Years Before the Mast, as he attends the wedding of Anita de le Guerra and Alfred Robinson. It's the event of the season, so don't miss it!
