Performed by a cast of ACHS Sophomore chorus students, the evening’s scripted dinner theater takes place in “Alexander Hall,” which is bedecked in festive holiday finery.
Madrigal guests, awaiting an evening of Olde English revelry, will be attended by ACHS Freshmen Chorus waiters and waitresses dressed in period costume.
The Lord and Lady of the Manor, presiding over the “Hidden Kingdom,” welcome the Royal Court to their daughter’s betrothal party. The party takes an interesting turn when the young lady notices a young gentleman from “another world and time.”
