In Celebration of Patrick “Paddy” Swanson

For over 34 years, Patrick “Paddy” Swanson has uplifted Revels as Artistic Director, infusing every production and community event with his creativity, vision, and dedication to cross-cultural artistic traditions. Now join Revels as we celebrate Paddy’s legacy in Harvard University’s historic Sanders Theatre, the home to 34+ Paddy-helmed productions of Christmas and Midwinter Revels. 

We will start the evening in Sanders Theatre for Swansong, a celebration of performances from Revels’ fan favorites. Experience extraordinary revelry featuring David Coffin, Keith Murphy, Becky Tracey, Mark Jaster & Sabrina Mandell, and the Revels Chorus!

Directly following Swansong, join us at Paddy’s Pub to eat, drink, dance, and be merry with Paddy! Enjoy sweet & savory food, a bar, personal tributes to Paddy, dancing, and music provided by The Gaslight Tinkers.

Tickets are available for Swansong alone for $50/ticket ($30 for children/students). Add on access to Paddy’s Pub with our Songbird package at $350/ticket.

All proceeds from the Swansong fundraiser support the Artistic Success Fund, in honor of Paddy Swanson.
