Madeline and the Bad Hat, an original musical
based upon the much-loved book, captures the blithe
yet touching spirit of Ludwig Bemelmans’s
Madeline series. It 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
fine day the Spanish Ambassador moves into the house
next door, Madeline and Miss Clavel and the other
girls quickly discover that his son Pepito is a true
horror! Rude and conceited, Pepito seems at first to
be nothing but trouble.
But when he
unexpectedly finds himself in real danger, it’s up
to the resourceful Madeline to get him out of it.
Can she teach Pepito a lesson into the bargain, and
does he have a hidden good side after all? This
gently amusing tale of enemies-become-friends will
charm and entertain children and parents alike.
