CHESTERTON | Chesterton High School Music Department will present its 40th annual Madrigal Dinners on Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the school cafeteria. All seats are reserved. Tickets are on sale for $30 per person at the CHS music office.

The CHS cafeteria will be transformed into a “Greate Hall” complete with Elizabethan settings and costumes for “Ye Olde Madrigal Christmas Feasts.” The madrigal is set in the 16th century and represents the traditions of the Christmas season through spoken and musical offerings.

The cast of approximately 100 CHS music students dressed in medieval costume sing, play, juggle, amuse and serve throughout each of the five performances. The students and their directors, Kristin Morris, Michael Scheiber and Vincent Arizzi, all work each year to present a quality performance.

Included in the madrigal is a complete breast of chicken dinner. The dinner includes a relish tray, chicken breast, mashed potatoes, green beans, salad, wassail and dessert. A nut-free plate or vegetarian plate including dessert will be available with request at the time of ticket purchase. The meal is prepared each year by the CHS cafeteria staff.

In honor of its 40th year, there will be an alumni reception following the 4 p.m. performance on Saturday. Alumni will be able to catch up with former cast members and share memories of past madrigal dinners. There will be coffee served and photos will be on display.
