A madrigal feast is a form of dinner theater often held by schools and churches during the Christmas season. It is set in the Middle Ages and is often comedic in nature. The meal is divided into courses, each of which is heralded with a traditional song. A play is performed between the courses and a concert of choral music concludes the festivities.
This year's Yuletide Madrigal Feast will include the following: ceremonial toasts and songs; dinner provided by Boo's Crossroads Cafe, consisting of roast loin of pork, stuffing, seasoned new potatoes, green beans, salad, dessert, water, tea, and coffee; a play entitled "Dances with Windmills;" and a concert of seasonal classical choral selections.
Tickets are $25 per person, and reservations can be made by calling the departmentâ€™s choral office at (812) 237-4590, the department of music main office at (812) 237-2771, or by visiting the music office, located in the Center for Performing and Fine Arts between 8 a.m and 4:30 p.m. Payment for the reservations can be made by check, money order, or cash. Credit cards cannot be accepted.
