Audition for the 37th annual Christmas Revels and help Washington Revels bring to life a timeless fable of the Winter Solstice! As the days grow short, a trio of traveling players from far-off lands arrives in a small European village, sharing the rich tapestry of their cultures’ music, dances, and stories with the townsfolk. But when the darkest night finally arrives, these visitors reveal themselves to be far more than simple entertainers and they embark on a celestial journey to reclaim the light and restore its warmth to the world.
