For the first time, Theatre Bristol will bring The Adventures of Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans to the ARTspace stage, featuring all the familiar characters, including Madeline, 11 little girls, Ms. Clavel, Pepito, Genevieve, and many more, including even author Mr. Bemelmans as the narrator.
With the blessing of Ludwig Bemelmans’ estate, playwright James Still has adapted the classic stories of the little girl Madeline and woven them into a stage adventure that incorporates the memorable rhyme and endearing charm we expect.
Directing the show will be actor/director/scriptwriter, Theatre Bristol veteran Dottie Havlik, most recently director of Charlotte’s Web, and actor in The Music Man, Les Misérables, Scrooge! The Musical, Steel Magnolias, and many more productions.
Theatre Bristol thanks all who auditioned–this audition was marked by strong talent in every role and choices were extremely difficult to make. We invite all who auditioned to return to audition for future Theatre Bristol productions.
