Even though FC Theatre will not have another play until March with Annie, there is still more to expect from it.
Saturday Dec.7, FC theatre director Robbie Steiner hosted the Madrigal Dinner, a special event that goes back a long time. “This is mostly a fun event that brings FC theatre together for the holidays,” he said.
The dinner took place in the FC auditorium on the stage where there was a four course dinner, music, skits and a set that was recycled from Les Mis. This year it was a castle that was designed by senior Kota Earnhardt and FC graduate Evan Wise. The set was just barely finished by the time of the dinner.
The dinner was originally scheduled to take place 7:00 p.m. on Friday Dec.6 and Saturday Dec.7. However, the unexpected snow day caused it to be postponed to 2:00 the next day, marking the first time that a show had to be postponed since Seussical two years ago.
There were three skits that were being played during the dinner. They were all of the same play called Marriage of the Married Maidens. Most of the older actors performed in these skits, while many of the younger actors worked as servers.
Everything seemed to go well for Mr.Steiner despite the stress. “This is a fun event that has been around for years and it usually goes pretty well,” he said.
