Madeline’s Christmas

Madeline’s Christmas
Horizon Theatre
through December 31, 2023

She’s back again! That adorable young gal from the book by Ludwig Bemelmans is hitting the stage in incredible performances brought to stage by Horizon with Atlanta Children’s Theatre.
This the 13th year this story has hit the boards to the total pleasure of kids from 5 to 95. Directed by Spring Mason they have two casts red and green, which take turn on stage.

Kenedi Deal is in each production as teacher, Miss Clavel, and Shanessa Sweeney comes on as the mother, Mrs. Murphy; while Allen Cox appears both as Monsieur Brun and the flying magician, Harsha on the flying carpets. You’ll know that even though you are in Paris, that if you can yell out Abracadabra at the right times, you can really score big.

If you think this is enough work for this local theatre, then you’ll want to also wish to check out an improvised holiday “movie” onstage, Y’allmark Christmas, in evening performances. This is a very different kind of play, created and directed by Topher Payne an Amber Nash. Playwright Payne is onstage as narrator who has to run with the cast as they come out with some weird responses. The grownups seem to really enjoy this one.
