The District 202 community is invited to enjoy the magic of all four high schools’ choir departments as they present their annual Madrigal dinners.
The Plainfield High School-Central Campus (PHSCC) choir department will hold its annual Madrigal Dinner at 5 p.m. on December 15 and December 16, 2012.
The event will feature a "Monty Python"-esque style program and an evening of music from the Madrigal Singers, Brass Ensemble, Recorder Ensemble, and more.
This year's Madrigal Dinner promises to be one of the most humorous yet, as the Madrigal King has arranged for a large Christmas banquet and family reunion, complete with a bickering mother, and the family black sheep.
Tickets are $18 and include a full multi-course meal. Please call the bookkeeping department at 815-436-3200 ext. 5945 by December 6, 2012.
