Madrigal Feast

We of M State - students, music and theatre faculty, and staff - wish to invite you to attend the Seventh Madrigal Feast at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 5 and 6 in Legacy Hall. It is our hope that the complexities of your 21st century lives will be cast aside and that you will free your minds to travel back in time to the simple pleasures of the 15th century.

Madrigal singing was originally an informal type of private entertainment at the castles and country homes of the landed gentry. Every person of good breeding was expected to be reasonably accomplished. From the opening processional you will experience the Christmas traditions of Elizabethan England.

This is a dinner theater event that will feature the M State 2014 Concert Choir and Voice Ensemble in many roles, and you will be treated to a five-course meal, a choral concert and the play A Christmas Fruitcake (And Other Weighty Matters). The choir members play the roles from King and Queen to the beggars, knights and minstrels of the day.

We encourage you to send your reservations back soon as reservations are first-come, first-served. Please see the flyer for details and further information for tickets and seating information.

"The Nerd"

Laughs take center stage in upcoming performances of The Nerd at Minnesota State Community and Technical College in Fergus Falls.

Mykey Watchorn of Frazee plays the role of Willum Cubbert, an aspiring young architect who often tells friends about the debt he owes to Rick Steadman, played by Sam Brown of Fergus Falls. Rick is a fellow ex-GI who saved Willum's life after he was seriously wounded in Vietnam, although the two men have never met. Willum is delighted when Rick shows up at his apartment unexpectedly, but it soon becomes apparent that Rick is a hopeless nerd - a bumbling oaf with no social sense, little intelligence and less tact.

The comedy's cast also includes M State students Teresa Widiger of Fergus Falls, Austin Begley of Fergus Falls, Gaige Jevne of Underwood, Miranda Hubert of Fergus Falls and Avery Votava of Fergus Falls.

The Nerd, written by Larry Shue, is directed by Stefanie Gerhardson.
