E. L. Orchestra Madrigal Tickets On Sale Now!

What is a Madrigal Feast you ask?! Well, a Madrigal dinner is a Renaissance themed dinner theater of sorts, much like Medieval Times, but with less jousting and more music. Our Madrigal Dinner is a collaborative work between the Richland Northeast HS and E. L. Wright MS fine arts departments. The event is full catered by Little Pigs and served by the RNE culinary department! During dinner guests get to enjoy medieval themed music, multilingual stories, courtly dances, and even a sword fight and a joust or two all while surrounded by student artwork!
