Tickets available for DHS Madrigal dinners

The DeKalb High School music department’s annual Madrigal dinners will be Dec. 10 and 11 at Northern Illinois University’s Altgeld Hall.

Seating will start at 6 p.m. and the processional begins at 6:30 p.m.

A Madrigal dinner is an American form of dinner theater often performed by schools, universities and church groups during the holiday season. It is set in the Middle Ages or Renaissance Period, and generally is comedic in nature. The meal is divided into courses, each of which is heralded with a traditional song. A play is performed between the courses, and a concert of choral music concludes the festivities.

Tickets cost $30 for adults and students, and $15 for children age 10 and younger. The meal will be provided by NIU Catering. Reservations must be made by Dec. 1.

Vegetarian and children’s meals are available upon request.
