Our Promise to the Community

At Portland Revels we are committed to the values of inclusivity, equity, diversity and accessibility (IDEA.)  We continue to work everyday to find ways to realize these values across our programs, productions and day to day operations.  Portland Revels celebrates creating connection and cultivating a vibrant community, which is impossible without a robust commitment to IDEA principles.

What’s New?

Don't forget - the digital capture of MIDWINTER REVELS: EMERALD ODYSSEY is posted and available, free of charge, on Youtube!

Check it out and share far and wide (link in our bio!)

Offering the show digitally to you, our community, is part of an effort to broaden the accessibility of our productions to those who are not able to join us at the theatre. And it gives those who joined us in person the chance to experience it again!

But it will only be available until the end of February, so catch it while you can!

the music alive

The Portland Revels offers our community a unique experience of performing arts – song, dance and storytelling are woven together and offered up throughout the year through our large-scale productions, pub sings and community performances. Year after year, audiences return for the special ritual of celebrating together and raising our voices in song!
