Special Meals


Paul D. Fleck Marquee, Festival Theatre
June 8 – August 9
5:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Sixteenth-century nobles enjoyed scrumptious banquets and exquisite delicacies – delights that our renowned culinary team use as the jumping-off point for their own interpretation of a four-course Elizabethan meal. This reimagined repast from the past is both a treat for the taste buds and a learning adventure that can’t be missed! Reserve at least 48 hours in advance.
