CRESTVIEW — The Crestview High School chorus’ Madrigal Dinner was a delightful evening of music, theatre, feasting and frivolity, punctuated by some wonderfully awfully bad jokes, lavish costumes and a sumptuous meal.

More than 80 student performers under choral music director Kevin Lusk's direction wove a charming spell as wenches and peasant lads served the delicious four-course banquet.

Just as the lead actors outdid themselves in their performance of a comedy set in 15th-century England, instructor Paula Knight’s culinary arts students excelled in preparing a delicious Cornish hen dinner.

Then hen was roasted to perfection, its skin browned, crisp and seasoned just right with a herb mixture. The white meat was juicy, just the way I like it. A close rival was the excellent Barley Potage, a soup that had just the right amount of spice to give it a nice kick.

Fun and funny
