The Cedar Ridge High School combined choirs, under the direction of Angie Phillips, will present their 11th Annual Madrigal Dinner on Friday, December 12, and Saturday, December 13, at 6:00 p.m.
Be transported back to medieval times - the days of kings and queens, lords and ladies, knights and jesters - for a unique dinner theater experience you will not want to miss!
The “royal servants” of the women’s Sotto Voce choir will welcome guests with carols and japes before serving a holiday feast of salad, brisket and sides, and dessert.
Throughout dinner, the Chamber Ensemble will entertain with the hilarious play, The Musical Ambassadors of Good Will. “Gloucestershire Wassail,” the “Boar's Head Carol,” “Deck the Hall,” and “Night of Silence” are among the songs that weave through the rollicking tale of lost travelers, mistaken identity, royal discord, and horrible puns.
Join the students of the Cedar Ridge choirs as they bring the feeling of Christmas and madrigal entertainment to life.
Performances will be held at the Cedar Ridge High School, 1125 New Grady Brown School Road, Hillsborough, NC. Doors open at 6:00pm and dinner begins at 6:30pm.
Listen to "Ms. Pegram's" interview with Ron Stutts!
We still need volunteers to help out! SignUpGenius
Each Madrigal performance is truly a group effort, and the kids need our assistance to pull it off. Help is needed before, during, and after the performances. In addition, the Boosters will provide meals for the students during Thursday's dress rehearsal and before Friday's show. If you can't be there but would like to contribute, consider donating food, water, or batteries (for microphones).
You'll find all of the volunteer opportunities at this SignUpGenius link. And please plan to attend the Boosters meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 9 at 6:30 for last-minute details.
Thank you all so much!
