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 starting off on the wrong foot with a mischievous new neighbor - eventually learns that first impressions aren't everything. When the Spanish Ambassador moves into the house next door, Madeline, Miss Clavel and the other girls quickly discover that his son, Pepito, is a true horror! Does Pepito have a hidden good side after all? This gently amusing tale of enemies becoming friends charms and entertains children and parents alike.
