September 9 – Christmas Revels Teen Auditions

Teens and flying canoe
WHO:  Teenagers entering grades 9-12 (about ages 14-18)
WHEN: Saturday, September 9 (late afternoon)
WHERE: Washington Revels Studio Space,
531 Dale Drive, Silver Spring, MD
WHAT: Each teenager is asked to prepare a short song to sing unaccompanied. The song selection can be from any era or genre with the exception of “pop” music or show tunes; traditional songs, seasonal carols, camp songs, folk tunes, and hymns are recommended.  Don’t try to impress with something difficult — often a simple song well sung is more effective than a more complicated one. Just sing something you love and know well. You will also participate in some group singing and dancing.

APPOINTMENT REQUIREDYou must call Washington Revels at 301-830-4407 for an audition slot any time after August 7. Questions? Call or email Susan Lewis at 202-257-4709 or

About the 2017 Production

The 2017 Christmas Revels will take place at Lisner Auditorium in Washington DC on the weekends of December 9-10 and 15-17, 2017. Join us in Trois-Rivières, a charming town in southern Québec. In the late December chill, the glow of hearth fires warms the spirits of the villagers as they prepare for the time of celebration–le temps des Fêtes! This energetic Québécois winter celebration features carols, wild dancing, and foot-stomping instrumentals, blending old French traditions with New World ingenuity. Sing, dance, and revel with our cast of over 100, ages 8-85, in this festive event.
