ArtsPower’s colorful musical captures the blithe yet touching spirit of Ludwig Bemelmans’ much loved Madeline series.

This amusing tale traces the adventures of a young Parisian girl who – despite starting off on the wrong foot with a mischievous new neighbor – eventually learns that first impressions aren’t everything. Told with gentle humor, and featuring a beautiful musical score, this amusing tale of enemies-become-friends will charm and entertain children and adults alike.

The third in the Madeline series, ArtsPower’s Madeline and the Bad Hat focuses on the unbreakable bonds of friendship and family.  Madeline is none too pleased when Pepito, the son of the Spanish ambassador, moves in next door. He seems insufferably arrogant and conceited.  Under the guidance of Miss Clavel, the caretaker of the girls at Madeline’s boarding school, Madeline learns not to judge a book by its cover.

Madeline and the Bad Hat has been adapted for the stage by ArtsPower’s artistic director Greg Gunning, who also wrote the lyrics and directed the production.  Composer/orchestrator Richard DeRosa created the original Broadway-style score.

Based on the book, “Madeline and the Bad Hat.” Written and illustrated by Ludwig Bemelmans. Copyright © 1956. Published by Viking Press, a division of Penguin Books, Inc., New York, NY. Presented under a special agreement. All rights reserved.
