Frequently Asked Questions
1.) Where is my show link?
We will post the show link on this page on the day of each performance. Please bookmark this page or save the URL so that you can come back on the day of the show.
2.) What can I expect from the virtual Christmas Revels?
Sign-in 15 minutes before showtime. You’ll see a countdown, which will tell you when the live show will begin. Please enjoy the music and a photo slide show from the last 25 years of Portland Revels to set the tone for our 2021 show. At performance time (7:30 pm or 2 pm), your host will come on live to greet you. We will follow that with a short discussion with our special guests. Next, we’ll watch the approximately one-hour film together before we end the evening.
3.) Do you have tips for watching the show with friends and family who aren’t in my home?
We encourage you to pick a show time that allows you to watch the show together virtually. Some people have told us they plan to text and Facetime their loved ones during the show. Others are setting up a second computer or tablet where they will Zoom with their friends. We recommend muting each other during the show so that you don’t hear feedback from multiple devices but love the idea of you finding a way to connect with your friends and family in this way.
4.) How do I let you know which show I’m attending?
You don’t! You can come to any show you like. You can even come to all three! Just follow the link posted on the day of each show to come to any performance (or performances) that you like! The on-demand link will be posted after our final live-streamed performance on Tuesday, December 21 at 7:30 pm.
