The Recycled Shakespeare Company, which provides free community entertainment in central Maine, will host an interactive dinner theater at 6 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 3. Those who attend will celebrate the winter, Christmas and the New Year at a castle created in the hall of St. Joseph Maronite Church in Waterville, according to a news release from the company.

A traditional madrigal contains within it a particular musical style which developed in Italy and saw great popularity in the Renaissance Era, according to the release.

A four-course, Elizabethan-style meal (vegetarian option available) including homemade wine and wassail is included for $20 per person. Non-alcoholic drinks are also provided.

Costumes are not required but are encouraged. For ideas, visit

Tickets must be purchased in advance and may be reserved by calling Emily Fournier at 314-8607.

RSC is a new not-for-profit theater troupe whose mission is to produce fun and enthusiastic local theater while utilizing recycled and repurposed materials, sets, costumes, and props; and allowing everyone interested in theater to have a part. Since their founding a year ago they produced a 450th Birthday Bash for Shakespeare in April, performed “Midsummer Night’s Dream” in June, appeared in the Waterville Head of Falls Festival and the Belfast Creative Coalition’s Inspire-a-Thon this fall, and are now in rehearsal for “Madcap Madrigal Three.” The company is always accepting community participation in all aspects of theater, where everyone is a volunteer. RSC is a member of the Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce.
