The MHS Chamber Singers and drama program are pleased to present “Ye Ole Madrigal Dinner,” which will be held Saturday, Dec. 14 and Sunday, Dec. 15.

Hors d’oeuvres will be served at  5 p.m. with the royal procession and fanfare set to begin at 5:15. The festivities will be held in the MHS Courtyard, 2100 Bristol St.

"You won’t want to miss the strolling minstrels and carolers, trumpet fanfare, and the royal regalia sure to warm your spirit this holiday season,'' MHS Choral Boosters publicity chair Annette Ashley said.

The dinner theater performance will also include Renaissance-style music, pageantry, and the frivolity of this year’s masque entitled “The Royal Wedding” which highlights a cast of characters from the royal court including knights, court jesters and royalty.

The Madrigal Dinner menu will include creamy butternut squash soup with herb bread and whipped butter, shepherd’s chicken vegetable pie (vegetarian option available), apple compote, gingerbread, whole apples and cheese along with coffee and tea.   Tickets for the dinner and theater performance are $25 for adults and $20 for students.  

Madrigal Dinner Reservation forms can be found on the Middleton Drama website. To guarantee reservations, please return the form with payment by Dec. 7.  If you have questions or need additional information, please e-mail John Stampen or call him at 831-2252.

The MHS vocal program is under the direction of Mr. Tom Mielke, while the drama program is directed by Ms. Kendra Dando.
