The Vermilion Arts Council Presents a Renaissance-Themed Dinner Theatre Benefit Event

Join us for a medieval evening of feasting and entertainment in the elegant halls of Woodlawn Chapel for our "Renaissance Feast" Dinner Theatre benefit event. A five-course meal carefully crafted by the Bon Temps Grill will be served. The first course, a traditional warm mulled wine called wassail, will be followed by a butternut squash bisque with cream and tasso. Staying true to our Renaissance theme, the main course will be a serving of locally sourced grass-fed beef roast and roasted root vegetables. You will want to save room for the fourth course, dessert, which will be a mouthwatering bread pudding with rum sauce. Finally, we will close our meal with hot coffee and some of Tony Mayard's most famous and scrumptious homemade biscotti. Wine and water will be served throughout the course of the meal and a cash bar will be available for those who want a little something more.

Guests will be delighted by the Woodlawn Players who will be performing a theatrical piece throughout the evening, with a script written by local artist Rick Rowan. We will also revel in the sound of period Renaissance music performed by Gypsy Dawn Consort. We encourage all guests to dress in Renaissance costume to enhance their experience.

Tickets for this event can be purchased exclusively online at under the Upcoming Events tab. Two dates are available - Friday, November 15, 2019 and Saturday, November 16, 2019.

All proceeds from this benefit event will go towards bringing the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra to Abbeville for a free to the public concert in St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church February 12, 2020. We look forward to sharing an evening of enchantment, revelry, and delight with you!!
