The 40th Annual Madrigal Dinner

Campus Events + Entertainment Creative Arts + Theatre is proud to present The 40th Annual Madrigal Dinner: A Ballad of the Past & Future. Enjoy an oringal, five-act, renaissance-style, dinner comedy play featuring a four-course meal, multi-part choir concert, and in-character improv breaks—all for the price of admission! The Madrigal Dinner will be held on the nights of November 18th, 19th, and 20th.

Play Synopsis: Thirty years ago, two kingdoms from the land of Madrigal merged together to create the kingdom of Ebrait. In the course of those thirty years, Ebrait's kings fell to corruption, and the current ruler, King Gideon, is no exception. As paths in Ebrait cross, a group of unlikely people will join forces under a common cause: to rid the kingdom of the menace responsible for its past and present corruption.
