Winter is coming, and so is the Stoughton High School theater department’s annual Madrigal Dinner.
No word on if any fire-breathing dragons will be involved, but things are going to get medieval next week around the school’s cafetorium, which will be turned into atmosphere of festivity recalling holiday celebrations in English Renaissance manors and castles.
The three-night event, set for 5:30 p.m. Dec. 8-10 at the high school, includes a served seven-course meal, with students providing theatrical entertainment, storytelling and music. The dinner is one of the more anticipated events at the school each year, with more than 150 students and as many parents and community members putting in hundreds of hours cooking, decorating, serving, performing, promoting, sewing to prepare for the dinners.
SHS director of vocal music and audio recording Ryan Casey told the Hub in an email tickets to the Saturday and Sunday shows were sold out as of Monday, Nov. 26. Casey recommended calling him at 877-5746 if interested in attending the Monday show, with seating filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Casey added that the group is looking for Renaissance costumes that could be donated. Call Casey to donate a costume.
