The CHS Cafeteria will be transformed into a “Greate Hall” complete with Elizabethan settings and costumes for “Ye Olde Madrigal Christmas Feasts.” The Madrigal is set in the 16th Century and represents the traditions of the Christmas season through spoken and musical offerings. The cast of approximately 100 CHS music students, dressed in medieval costume, will sing, play, juggle, amuse and serve throughout each of the five performances.

The students and their directors, Vince Arizzi, Kathy Barbian, Brian Grenier, Kristin Morris, and Julia Rutherford-Cardinale, work each year to present a quality performance.

Included in the Madrigal along with the music and drama is a complete dinner. The dinner includes a relish tray, chicken breast, mashed potatoes, green beans, salad, wassail, and dessert. A nut free plate or vegetarian plate including dessert will be available with your request at the time of ticket purchase. The meal is prepared each year by the CHS Cafeteria staff.
