Madrigal Dinner Depicts Medieval Holiday Tradition

The evening will be filled with the music, mirth and court entertainment characteristic of the festivities of the European Middle Ages, as the A Cappella Choir and Madrigal Singers perform for guests at the Feast. Dressed in the finest Renaissance attire, the students will serve a sumptuous spread consisting of Wassail (mulled cider), Chilled Fruit Cup, Salad, Homemade Bread, Stuffed Rock Cornish Game Hen, Redskin Potatoes with Parsley, Prince Charles Vegetables, Ice Cream with Cherries, and Coffee or Tea.

 Doors to the Great Dining Hall will open at 6:30 p.m.  A Trumpet Fanfare will herald the beginning of the Feast, befitting their majesties, the King and Queen and Honored Guests. Dinner will begin with the traditional “Procession of the Wassail”, a spiced drink, honoring the lord of the manor.  The Wassail Ceremony will be followed by the symbolic “Procession of the Boar’s Head”, traditionally, the main course. After dinner, guests will be entertained with a student-written parody of Shrek.

Tickets are advance sale only.  They are $24 for adults and $20 for students (including college students) and senior citizens (65 and older). Seating is at tables of 440-439-1500 x6855 or the activities office at 440-439-4588.  The deadline for purchasing a ticket is November 17th.
