The evening will be a benefit and friendly gathering with special guests Oran Sandel (longtime Teaching Artist and lead actor in many Christmas Revels productions), and Roberta Gasbarre (our Artistic and Education Director, and 20-year Stage Director of our Christmas Revels), who are meeting the challenges of Oran’s battle with cancer with their usual style and grace. He is doing unexpectedly well, and working in the garden, sharing stories and songs with his beloved Little Dragons workshop at Revels, and is looking forward to spending this evening with all of you.
This concert is just one example of the Revels community’s creative ways of lending support to Oran and Roberta. Rowyn and Erin will perform original songs, favorite covers, and undoubtedly an audience sing-along or two, to raise money to help with Oran’s continuing expenses. There may even be a fiddle tune by Jamie Sandel, Oran and Roberta’s talented son!
A reception will follow the concert.
