31st Annual Welcome Yule: A Midwinter Celebration
Shea Theater, 71 Avenue A
December 11, 12 and 13, 7:30pm
Welcome Yule celebrates the return of the light with a family show filled with music, dance, songs and stories to drive the dark away!
This year, we join revelers in a seaside village as they celebrate the safe return of their fisher folk on the eve of the winter solstice. Nautical songs and a sailors’ jig add to the revelries as villagers feast and welcome the return of the light.
Welcome Yule’s signature wassailing songs, carols, puppets, stick dancing and mummers play will be included, along with the passing of the Yule log, the Abbots Bromley Horn Dance and a retelling of the myth of Halcyon.
Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and children five through sixteen, age four and under free. Families of five pay $40. Reserve tickets by calling the Shea Theater reservation line (413) 863-2281
