Support Revels:

Help us in our goal of Bringing Tradition to Life both in Santa Barbara and as part of the national network of Revels companies. Your contributions support our efforts to create community through shared experiences of celebrating the seasons, experiences that are “educational, traditional, and simply fun.” (Charles Donelan, Santa Barbara Independent)

Our annual production of The Christmas Revels: In Celebration of the Winter Solstice has become “a unique seasonal phenomenon.” (Josef Woodard, Santa Barbara News Press)

We are:

  • The only performing arts production that makes exclusive use of local actors, dancers, and instrumentalists, both professionals and volunteers.
  • The only children’s chorus that reaches out to local students – especially from Title 1 schools – and provides training, costumes, transportation, and an exciting performance opportunity at absolutely no cost to them.
  • The only local adult chorus that offers an enriching and unusual theatrical experience and charges no dues or fees to participate.
  • The only holiday season offering that changes each year and features traditional material from various cultures, countries, and centuries.
  • The only theatrical experience that engages audiences in participatory activities, encouraging them to sing and dance with our performers.

Additionally, our year-round activities and events are presented free or at very low cost, so that as many community members as possible can participate. Our programs cannot be accessible and affordable for all without your support. Here’s how you can help:
