February 29 – “Leap into Spring” Luncheon

Photo by Kristen Adair

Leap Day comes but once in four years — but when it comes, it brings good cheer!

What better way to make the rarest calendar day even more special than by celebrating with Washington Revels?

Join us for our third annual luncheon at the award-winning L’Auberge Chez François! Chef Jacques Haeringer has planned a Springtime repast to lift our spirits as we look ahead to warmer weather. Special guest Sabrina Mandell of Happenstance Theater (and many Christmas Revels) will join us to add to the merriment as we raise a toast, and songs of Spring, in anticipation of the greening of the year!

Come for fabulous cuisine and a welcome break from Winter, plus an auction featuring a one-of-a-kind piece of “Celestial Fools” memorabilia and a fully-costumed onstage appearance in one 2020 Christmas Revels performance!

You may peruse the Springtime menu at the link above!

Featured Auction Item

Win a Christmas Revels Onstage Role!

Revel with us on the Lisner stage for one performance during this year’s Christmas Revels. One lucky luncheon guest will win the (perhaps once-in-a-lifetime!) opportunity to join our cast — in full costume and makeup — as an honorary member of the Revels chorus. You will get to sing on all audience sing-alongs and be part of the onstage community during many non-singing moments. Help us lead the audience out of the theater during “Lord of the Dance” and join hands with the cast as we encircle the hall and sing “Sussex Mummers Carol!”

Item Value: Priceless
