Based on Ludgwig Bemelmans’ classic book, Metropolitan Performing Arts (MPA) presents the family friendly musical Madeline’s Christmas. After two months of acting, music and dance rehearsals, 19 Vancouver youth performers will take to the stage. “In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines lived 12 little girls in two straight lines.” It’s the night before Christmas and everyone is sick in bed. All except brave Madeline, who is up and about and feeling just fine. Taking care of 11 little girls and Miss Clavel is hard work, but Madeline finds help from a magical merchant peddling flying carpets door-to-door. Now the girls are going on a Christmas journey that will surely make them forget their sniffles and sneezes.
Metropolitan Performing Arts (MPA) is a Vancouver based non-profit academy and community theater that offers professional, technique driven classes in acting, dance, music and tech. Their mission is to enrich the community by providing performance and educational opportunities in the live arts. The cast of Madeline’s Christmas is part of the Musical Theater Program. The program’s focus is to train ‘Triple Threats’- talented individuals who can sing, dance and act with equal accomplishment.
