The show is directed by LCHS choir director Kim Peterson-Quinn. David Swaar is instrumental music director, and Julie Kasa is the accompanist.

Madrigal dinners are a form of dinner theater for the Christmas season and are generally set in the Middle Ages. The meal is divided into courses, and skits of a comedic nature are performed between the courses. In addition, a mix of medieval and renaissance period choral music is included.

The dinner entree for the performances is roast beef au jus, and Christmas cake will be served for dessert.

For tickets, call Kim Peterson-Quinn at 217-732-4131, ext. 343.
