December 10th, 11th, and 12th will be the 46th annual Lincoln-way Central Madrigals dinners. That Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 6:00pm, the 2015-2016 Madrigals will be giving performances.

The large auditorium’s stage will be completely decorated to help immerse the audience into the feel of the 1400’s, with the singers and actors dressed in Renaissance -era clothing. The singers will be performing songs of the era as well as some more well-known songs such as The Twelve Days of Christmas and Carol of the Bells. The actors will be moving the night forward in between the songs with skits and remarks in the characters of a jester, a wench, and the nights’ hosts, the Lord and Lady.

There will also be dinner and dessert provided for all attending. Tickets are $30 and can be ordered if you call 815/462-2300 or email [email protected] to make your reservation.
