    Christmas Revels, a festive stage show and well-loved Upper Valley institution, returns for its 43rd year. Presented by community arts nonprofit Revels North, this spirited spectacular of song, dance and storytelling celebrates a particular culture each year by exploring its winter solstice and holiday traditions. This year, a cast of 73 auditioned performers tells the story of a young girl, played by Strafford’s Maeve Miller, on a journey to discover her Nordic heritage. Finnish tales, Swedish gnomes, Scandinavian music and dance, and even some Norwegian drinking songs enliven this dazzling display of regional appreciation. at Spaulding Auditorium, Hopkins Center for the Arts, Dartmouth College in Hanover.

    A child’s imagination can provide relief from stress, anxiety and trauma, explains psychologist Charlotte Reznick in a video on the parenting website Kids in the House. For Bahar, the little girl in the 2016 film Breath, this claim proves true. Set in central Iran in the 1970s and ’80s, the dramatic motion picture follows Bahar, played by Sareh Nour Mousavi, as she escapes her chaotic world through books, daydreams and fantasies. Writer and director Narges Abar drew on her own experiences to make the movie, shown in Farsi with English subtitles. The Vermont International Film Festival presents this Academy Award submission at Burlington’s Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center. at Film House, Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center in Burlington (map). $5-8; free for Vermont International Film Festival members.

    Originally known as Iron Eyes Cody, Burlington indie-rock band Fever Dolls recently unveiled their new name — along with a tighter, more theatrical style. In a conversation with Seven Days, front man Evan Allis named larger-than-life artists such as Kiss, the Residents and Daft Punk as spiritual inspiration for the energy he and the band hope to capture in the updated project. Combining heavier synth tones with IEC’s countrified rock sounds, Allis and powerhouse front woman Renn Mulloy present songs full of high-octane hooks and dark, personal lyrics. Fever Dolls perform on Thursday, December 14, at SideBar in Burlington. Locals Erin Cassels-Brown and Papas Porch open. at SideBar in Burlington (map). $3.

    "I wanna be where the people are,” sings Ariel in Disney’s The Little Mermaid. Northern Stage’s ambitious production of this fairy tale musical takes viewers on the golden-voiced sea creature’s quest to live on land. Actor Dani Westhead portrays the title character as she frolics with friends Flounder and Scuttle, faces off against her formidable father, King Triton, and strikes a deal with Ursula, the fearsome sea witch. Directed by Chad Larabee, this aquatic adventure makes a splash with eye-catching costumes, stunning scenery and beloved songs such as “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl” and “Part of Your World.” at Barrette Center for the Arts in White River Junction.
