It was a night of etiquette, royalty and food Feb. 8 and 9.

Though the Oregon Middle School Madrigal Dinner king was turned into a duck and court and audience members alike broke the etiquette rules, the evening was a success.

Hundreds turned out to observe an interactive medieval performance by seventh- and eighth-graders. They performed songs, rhymes and made the audience laugh with their antics.
