Madeline’s Christmas ~ Horizon Theatre, Atlanta, Ga


It has been a while since I have posted because I am in the midst of updating the website, but this is news I cannot wait to share.  Who is familiar with Ludwig Bemelmans Madeline stories?  How about Madeline’s Christmas?  “In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines lived twelve little girls in two straight lines,” begins the story of Madeline.  In Madeline’s Christmas, the musical is told through the eyes of twelve little girls who have fallen ill to the flu, all except for Madeline.  The girls wonder if they will be able to go home for Christmas.  On Christmas Eve, Madeline receives a gift from an unexpected visitor that leads to an enchanting adventure beyond their wildest dreams.  The story is filled with life lessons of compassion and family values for all.

The arts in Atlanta are near and dear to my heart. Madeline’s Christmas is in the production’s tenth-year at Horizon Theatre, where more than 220 local girls have realized their dream of performing with a professional theatre company as part of the Madeline’s Christmas cast.  This year’s cast of girls are ages 8 to 13, from 5 metro Atlanta counties and 18 different schools.  The good news (drum roll)… My daughter was cast as Juliette in this year’s production of Madeline’s Christmas.  Our family is thrilled for her and ecstatic for all the girls who are working hard to make the production a success.

Madeline’s Christmas, the musical is a holiday treat for the whole family!  To kick off the holiday season Horizon Theatre was in Little Five Points Halloween Parade, which included all twenty-four girls (a double cast) in this years production.  On December 18 the girls will perform at Atlantic Station’s Tree Lighting and on December 2 the production will open its doors.

Happy Holidays,

Kelley Sue
