CRESTVIEW — Crestview High School's chorus invites the community to step back several centuries for an evening of holiday feasting, song and merriment at its Madrigal Dinner.

The 80-voice show choirs turn the school's multi-purpose room into a candle-lit Renaissance banquet hall, draped with tapestries and heraldic shields, for a production that is part dinner theatre, part musical performance.

From the moment the crier calls out guests' names, attendees are swept into an swashbuckling Yuletide adventure.

As attentive servants circulate, laying a sumptuous Cornish game hen dinner prepared by instructor Paula Knight's culinary arts classes, the chorus periodically bursts into song.

Lavishly costumed student performers — backed by their fellow Chanticleer, Chorale and Destiny show choir members in courtier roles — perform the story between courses.

Proceeds benefit the school's travel fund for its springtime performance in Nashville.
