“In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines lived twelve little girls in two straight lines,” begins the story of Madeline. This holiday season will be unlike any other for Madeline and her friends. While on their morning walk with Miss Clavel, the girls come down with the flu, and as they take to their bed, many wonder if they will be able to go home for Christmas. With the arrival of a mysterious stranger, Madeline and the other girls get a holiday adventure beyond their wildest dreams.

A musical play adapted from Ludwig Bemelmans’ delightful book. A holiday treat for the whole family!

“…a terrific production. The girls (and adults) were utterly charming. So enjoyable!”
