About Casting

All children auditioning will be cast in one of two productions, the 2017 Christmas Revels or our 2018 May Revels. The children who are invited to perform in the May Revels rehearse on Wednesday afternoons starting in late March or the first week in April. They join the adult and teen choruses for 2-3 rehearsals in the two weeks prior to the performance, which takes place on the first Sunday in May.

The 2017 Christmas Revels will take place at Lisner Auditorium in Washington DC on the weekends of December 9-10 and 15-17, 2017. Please visit The Christmas Revels pages to learn more about previous shows.
