Twelfth Night Revels
What Is Revels?
The Twelfth Night Revels are part of a long-standing tradition that highlights the Orpheus Club season year after year. An irreverent and humorous musical production staged by a select group from within the Club, our Revels feature original arrangements (and sometimes lyrics) to songs loosely linked by a topical plot line. The music includes a wide variety of styles, and all roles are played by OC men in stunning and sometimes outrageous costumes and make-up.
What Do I Need To Know?
PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY!
Presented at the OC clubhouse at 254 Van Pelt Street, evening dress is requested (except at any matinee, when the dress is business attire). Evening shows begin at 8:30pm so please arrive early to grab a drink and take your seat in time for the curtain to rise at 8:30pm. Following the show, refreshments and a light buffet are served while the cast (along with other Singing Members present) put on an impromptu “Round Table” performance.
Each Associate Member receives an invitation for two to a Revels evening of their choosing, subject to availability.

Our 2018 Show:
Hollywood’s celebs are worried! A year of scandal has badly tarnished Tinseltown’s glitzy façade: the public isn’t buying tickets, and the movie business is in big trouble. All hopes are pinned on making this year’s Oscars a blockbuster that will return some desperately needed luster to Hollywood’s fading star…
But one man’s crisis is another’s opportunity. The long-overlooked and disaffected grips, gaffers and other technical “nobodies” realize that they have the power to ruin the Oscars show, and with it the celebs’ best chance to rehabilitate their industry and careers… and that this gives them leverage to demand recognition in the form of the one thing the celebs would die rather than share – the spotlight!
Will the two sides work out there differences? Will there once again be no business like show business or just be no show business? Find out as the Orpheus Club presents “Oscars Wild! – or – Lights! Camera! Factions!”
