Madeline’s Christmas returns to Horizon Theatre Company in Little Five Points this holiday season for the sixth year. A delightful treat for the whole family, Horizon in collaboration with The Atlanta Children’s Theatre Company reprises the delightful musical adaptation of Ludwig Bemelmans’ classic book December 7 to 31, 2013.

Based on one of the most popular children’s book characters of all time, the production features 24 local girls performing alongside professional actors in two irresistibly adorable casts. Madeline and her friends are sure to enchant audiences of all ages with their holiday adventure filled with laughter, magic, and newfound friends.

In the production’s six year history, over 120 local girls have realized their dream of performing with a professional theatre company as part of the Madeline’s Christmas cast. This year’s cast features girls, ages 8 to 12, from four metro Atlanta counties and 19 different schools.

Madeline’s Christmas runs December 7 to 31, 2013. Performances are weekends at 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. with additional school day matinee and holiday week show times. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for children. Tickets and information are available at horizontheatre.com or 404.584.7450.

STORY
Based on the book by Ludwig Bemelmans Book and lyrics by Jennifer Kirkeby  Music by Shirley Mier

“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!
