Madeline’s Christmas

Rated G

A magical musical adaptation of Ludwig Bemelman’s beloved classic children’s tale: “In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines lived 12 little girls in two straight lines.” So begins this delightful story of Madeline’s Christmas! A festive treat for parents and children alike. Kick-off the season with this endearing musical for kids of all ages (including the grandparents who remember reading the book when they were children!) Bring the grandparents to pick up a special toy or treat at intermission!

Have a group of 12 or more?  Visit our group sales page for more information!


Apparel orders due October 24!
