California Revels Performance and Panel

Workforce Opportunity Services (WOS), a leading non-profit organization connecting individuals from underserved populations with transformative career opportunities, is hosting a free online, fun-filled, educational Q&A panel with the cast and crew of this year's Christmas Revels!

This year California Revels is presenting La Sirène, visiting folklore and traditions from 19th Century London, as well as the Gullah and Caribbean Islands. Together we embark on an odyssey across the Atlantic. From sea chanties, mermaids, and Christmas carols to Jonkonnu and Papa Bois, we'll celebrate the Winter Solstice through the eyes of La Sirène and Joseph Johnson, a sailor who lived his life in all these traditions.

Come meet people close to the show and prepare for the adventure that awaits you! Join us on Monday, December 13, 2021 from 6:00-7:00 pm EST for Behind the Scenes of La Sirène with the California Revels Panel.
