Madrigal Singers will perform an original script written by students Mary Baldino, Nick Filerman, Donna Ilyukh and Caroline Powers. The evening also will feature a cappella singing, dancing and music from the Renaissance to modern times.

The show is directed by Ellen Singer.

"There's actually a lot of Renaissance Madrigals written about spring and love," Singer said. "We just take advantage of that and do a show in the spring."

The 16 student performers include Rebecca Arvold, Mary Baldino, Mahitha Chaturvedula, Megan Eisenstein, Dana Feldstein, Nicolas Filerman, Abby Froyshteter, Donna Ilyukh, Alexa Koperski, Amelia Landau, Saumya Malhotra, Rebecca Muise, Caroline Powers, Isabella Rondon, Marissa Schwartz and Shawn Zhu.

Tickets cost $32 and can be purchased by emailing Ellen Singer at esinger@d125.org.
