Madeline's Christmas is filled with magic and visual surprises. Opening night's young audience was enthralled even though there wasn't a single mention of Santa.

Why See Madeline's Christmas?

Madeline gets her own holiday show!

Joyeux Noel, New Yorkers (that's French for Merry Christmas!) as author Ludwig Bemelmans's feisty young Parisian heads to the stage for a very special holiday musical adventure! First published in 1939, the spunky, clever Madeline has proved to be an enduring role model for girls worldwide; this new musical adaptation is created specially with young audiences in mind by Jennifer Kirkeby, with music by Shirley Mier. A fantastic holiday show for fans of the books - and the holiday season, of course!

This musical follows Madeline and her fellow Catholic boarding school friends at their Paris abode, as they prepare to go home for the Christmas holidays. But on a morning walk in the snow with Miss Clavel, some of the girls catch the flu! Will they get better in time to see their families? And who is the mysterious figure that savvy Madeline befriends and takes on them on a thrilling adventure? A charming holiday musical for the whole family, with plenty of laughs, songs and thrills along the way!
