Review: “A warmhearted introduction to the holiday season…”
-Arlington Sun Gazette, “Encore season-opener provides an early Christmas present”

Nov. 10-19 and Dec. 1-3, 2017
“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! Miss Clavel takes the 12 little girls on a series of adventures when disaster suddenly strikes as everyone gets the flu! Everyone that is, except for the ever-resilient Madeline. Saddened that they may not be able to go home for Christmas, the girls and Miss Clavel take to their beds. A jolly visitor in red appears who reminds Madeline and her friends about the magic of the holidays. We recommend this charming musical for ages 4 and older.

Running Time: One hour and 30 minutes including a 15 minute intermission.
