Madrigal Sales Begin

Tickets for the 44th Annual Madrigal Feaste go on sale to the public on Monday, Sept. 23, at 12 p.m. Patrons are reminded that this is a very popular event and the box office will be incredibly busy.

For immediate service, the box office recommends that patrons order online at www.ashland.edu/tickets (additional fees apply for online orders) or come to the box office window located in the lobby of Hugo Young Theatre at the corner of College Avenue and Grant Street. Patrons also can call the box office at 419.289.5125, but phone lines are expected to be busy. Discounted tickets for children can only be purchased directly through the box office and not online.

Ashland University Department of Music produces the annual Madrigal Feaste, which is slated before Thanksgiving this year on Wednesday through Sunday, November 20-24. All performances begin at 6:30 p.m. in Redwood Hall.

Directed by Dr. Rowland Blackley, director of choral activities, the Madrigal Feaste is a dinner theater based in sixteenth-century England with constant entertainment provided throughout the evening. The Ashland University Chamber Singers perform ceremonial music, Christmas carols and madrigals while the Madrigal Players present a new comedic play along with improvisational theatrics. Fanfare trumpeters, the Court Jester, Butler and Wenches round out the cast. Performer costumes are designed as authentic reproductions of period apparel; and the four-course meal culminates in flaming bread pudding.

Tickets for the event are $28 for adults; $25 for groups of 10 or more; and $18 for children under 12. A special $13 ticket is available to Ashland University students for the Wednesday performance only. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available upon request at the time of ticket purchase. Due to preparation of meals, tickets are not available at the door.
