A full sit-down dinner inside the theater at the Billie Limacher Bicentennial Park!

With an original script from Jake Thomas, musical direction from Marty Kaspar, dancing from La Danse Academie under the direction of Lori Bowen, beautiful music from the Volare Trio and the Royal Brass, along with the singing of madrigal music from the Renaissance and with other entertainment from the period, it was again a wonderful show!

The dinner was catered by Mrs. Gourmet Catering of Joliet, and included roast beef and ham, salad, bread and butter, baked potato, vegetables, water, fruit punch, and dessert. And the Wassail is unforgettable!
