ArtsPower’s 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 staritng off on the wrong foot with a mischievous new neighbor – eventually learns that first impressions aren’t everything.

When one 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.
