The Madrigal Dinners cast recreates the atmosphere of a Renaissance feast once held in English castles, bringing to life the regal pageantry and ceremonial pomp of “merrie olde England.” The evening features music from the royal court, minstrels, beggars, cellar keepers, recorders, and the masque “Handel and Gretzky – Tale of Two Kiddies” presented by the King’s Players, while guests enjoy a five-course dinner with seating in the round.
