The Madrigal Dinner


Now entering its 38th year, the Madrigal Dinner is E+E’s longest running event. Generations of UT students have been delighted by this annual fall tradition and come back year after year. Madrigal Dinner is a Renaissance-style dinner theatre experience. It features an original, student-produced play, a choir concert, improv performances, and a four-course meal. Please join us for a night of laughter, action, song, and bread pudding. We hope to see you there. Huzzah!
