Tickets for the 2012 Madrigal Dinners at Western Carolina University will go on sale at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6.
The event will be held at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, and Saturday, Dec. 1, in the Grandroom of the A.K. Hinds University Center.
Held annually since 1970, the Madrigal Dinners are re-creations of the pageantry, music and food of 16th-century England, with authentic madrigal entertainment and costumes.
The menu will include a choice of three entrees (grilled pork loin chop with bourbon-apple glaze, honey-citrus glazed Cornish game hen, or a vegetarian plate featuring a shepherd’s pie) and will be served with wassail, salad, roasted garlic mashed new potatoes, honey-cinnamon glazed carrots, plum pudding, rolls, tea, water and coffee. Tables seat eight apiece.
Tickets are $37 ($22 for WCU students) and may be purchased in the University Center administrative offices (on the second floor) between the hours of 9 a.m. until noon and 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Telephone orders can be made by calling 828-227-7206, with payment by credit card.
Reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis, and all sales are final.
