Join the Washington Revels December 10-12 & 17-19 for The Christmas Revels back to the stage with a story rooted in the history of our region and our nation. After almost 40 years, The Christmas Revels will be staged in a new venue – the historic Spanish Ballroom at Glen Echo Park.
Featuring an all-new theme rooted in American nineteenth-century seasonal traditions, this year’s Christmas Revels transports audiences back to December 1870 in Washington, DC. The holidays have arrived and in the elegant parlor of Senator Hiram Rhodes Revels – the first African American to serve in the U.S. Congress – the household is preparing for a party! Hiram and his wife Phoebe have invited colleagues and friends from near and far to celebrate the turning of the year.
