A fun and creative alternative to a traditional Christmas pageant. It combines the idea of a madrigal feast with the drama and intrigue of experiencing the first Christmas as a guest of the Innkeeper. A Madrigal Feast is an American form of dinner theater often held by schools and church groups during the Christmas season. Meant to recreate the feeling of a Renaissance feast, it is set in the Middle Ages and often comedic in nature. This event is generally held in the evening. The meal is divided into courses, each of which is heralded with a traditional song. A play is performed between the courses or after the main course has been served and a concert of choral music concludes the festivities.
