Madrigal Feast beckons you back to court

The Coastal Bend College Community Performing Arts Project and the Beeville Community Chorus will present its second Madrigal Feast and play on Thursday, Nov. 19; Friday, Nov. 20; and Saturday, Nov. 21 at the James R. Dougherty Student Center [SUB] beginning at 6 p.m. each evening. General seating starts at 5:30 p.m. Reservations for tables of six may be made in advance. A four-course meal will be served.

 There are 135 tickets available for each performance. Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for students with a current school ID card and children and may be purchased through the CBC ticket box office at (361) 354-2545 or www.coastalbend.edu. The last day to make a reservation is Tuesday, Nov. 17.  There will be no tickets sold at the door. 

 The Madrigal Dinner draws its influence from the Middle Ages with a focus on choral music.  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. Renaissance costumes are encouraged but not required.

Members of the cast are: Towncrier – Jose Arredondo; Page – Cheryl Clarke; Jester – Thomas Brewer; Lord Boris – Matthew Wagner; Lady Abigail – Stacy Stevenson; King – Philip Brewer; Queen – Sally Friedlander; and Jestress – Donna Davis.
