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 www.facebook.com/RecycledShakespeare.

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.
