Twelfth Night Revels
Weather-shmeather! That snow was nothin’. Looks like were in the clear for all of our Week 3 shows.
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 plotline.
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. Presented at the OC clubhouse at 254 Van Pelt Street, evening dress is requested (except at any matinee, when the dress is business attire).
Following the show, refreshments and a light buffet are served and 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 2017 Show:
She Soups to Conquer – or – Un Oeuf is Enough
A once-storied Parisian cooking school is faced with imminent extinction. Can it be saved by Gordon Ramsay’s monstrous ego? Or will the machinations of a spicy ragout (half-baked mélange?) of culinary would-be’s and has-beens prove once and for all that too many cooks spoil the broth? Will L’Ecole Gastronomique go down in history as a Michelin three star triumph? … or just as a recipe for disaster? You be the judge, as the 2017 Orpheus Club Twelfth Night Revels serves up un peu d’esprit, a soupcon of good music, and the usual bubbling cauldron of madcap nonsense. Be sure to make your reservation! We promise: You will roux the day if you forget!
