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.
Join us in keeping
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!
