What is "Hope For The HolidaysvMadrigal Dinner & Holiday Cabaret?"
The show is a musical production put on by JHS Vocal Music Department’s Chamber Singers/Vocal Jazz. For years our program has put on the annual “Madrigal Dinner Feast,” where the students dressed in medieval costuming and the venue transformed into a castle hall. We have decided to expand the format into a more informal setting while adding some modern traditional & jazz holiday tunes, comedy, stage play and dinner theater style fun for the entire family.
The story of the night will portray a tale of two Christmases with each depicting the hope and joys of the holiday season. The first is a tale of Yuletide from long long ago. A Time of kings, queens, princes, princesses, knights, and jesters. The Chamber Singers will take us back to the Isle of England over two-thousand years and thus will begin the festive show. With pageantry & costuming befitting of a royal occasion, lords and ladies will assemble to tell the stories of holiday hope through carols, feasting, and Jesters comedic presentation. After the feast, dessert will be served with a slate of traditional pop and jazz holiday carols reminiscent of good old holiday memories. The comedy, soulful singing, and holiday hope will be amped up as you polish off your meal to ensure every participant leaves with hop for the holidays. This is a time for the entire family as your children will get to take pictures and dance with the King Calvin, Queen Jenna, Prince Joseph, Princess Kenshayla, or a noble lord/lady of your choice.
The dinner will feature the same great chefs (Mike & Marcia ) whom have provided our most fantastic and flavorful meals for the past four years. This year’s menu will include
*Appetizer- Crisp & fresh garden salad served with your choice of ranch and/or Italian dressing
*Wassail Bowl- The traditional classic Madrigal Dinner “Wassail.” A wonderful hot spiced cider punch mixed with cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove, and a mixture of fruits. For years this drink has been star of the night to warm are the bellies of guests and tickle their taste buds.

*Dessert- A warm serving homemade bread pudding drizzled with Chef Mike’s famous caramel sauce.
