Welcome Yule 2023

Welcome Yule returns to the Shea Theater Arts Center in Turners Falls, MA on December 8, 9 and 10. When we move into the dark time of the year, we keep our spirits alive through community, connection, and tradition. This year in Welcome Yule, we are focusing on that recurring cycle of dark and light, Sun and Moon, life, death, and rebirth as the wheel of the year marks its repeated turning. Our village is drawing together in this dark time, maintaining itself and its sense of community through song, dance, story-telling and a mummer’s play. Join us in singing; touch the Yule Log for good luck; feel a chill with the eerie Abbots Bromley Horn Dance, and join us in laughing away the dark!
