Madeline and the Bad Hat

Madeline and the Bad Hat, an original live musical based upon the much-loved book, captures the blithe yet touching spirit of Ludwig Bemelman’s Madelineseries. It traces the adventures of a young Parisian girl who – despite starting off on the wrong foot with a mischeiveous new neighbor – eventually learns that first impressions aren’t everything. Schwartz Center for the Arts, October 6th, 7 P.M.

 

 

Ragtime: The Musical

Based on E. L. Doctorow’s distinguished novel, this musical intertwines the turn-of-the-century stories of three extraordinary families as they confront wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America. Produced with special arrangement of Music Theatre International. Possum Hall, September 30th, and October 1st, 8:00 P.M. and October 2nd, 2 P.M.
