    Madeline’s Christmas

    Madeline’s at Main Street Theater! From Ludwig Bemelman’s classic book Madeline’s Christmas, this delightful musical version will play Saturdays at 1pm and 4pm from November 13 – December 11 with a special 11:30am performance on Friday, November 26. Performances are at Main Street Theater–Chelsea Market, 4617 Montrose Boulevard in the Museum District.

    About Madeline’s Christmas
    "In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines lived twelve little girls in two straight lines." This charming 1956 classic finds Madeline in a Christmas crisis when all of her schoolmates are sick, along with headmistress Miss Clavel. Who will run the school? How will the girls get home for the holidays? Madeline must take charge! Madeline's Christmas is a perfect reminder for audiences of all ages of this wonderful season of miracles.

    About Author Ludwig Bemelmans
    Author, illustrator, artist, gourmet – Ludwig Bemelmans was a man of many talents. Bemelans wrote 45 books in his career but his best known for this authorship and illustration of the Madeline books. Bemelmans' "Central Park", a mural on the walls of the Carlyle Hotel's Bemelmans Bar in New York City, is his only remaining artwork on display to the public.

    Bemelmans died in 1962. He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

    PARKING UPDATE AT CHELSEA MARKET (MAY 2014):

    As you may or may not be aware, Main Street Theater's Chelsea Market activities will move to the MATCH once it's built.  The MATCH is the Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston and will break ground on May 7, 2014.  We hope to be able to move out of Chelsea market into our new home at the MATCH in the fall of 2015.  There's more information on the MATCH here: http://www.matchouston.org/

    IN THE MEANTIME:
    You may have noticed that Chelsea Market has recently lost half its parking lot in a sale to a developer. In addition, our lease on that space has expired, BUT we are being allowed to stay through our 2015 season, providing we can find solutions to some of the parking problems our activities create. This affects all our programs: the showcases on Saturday mornings, our schoolday performances, and our weekend family matinees.  We are very grateful to be able to stay at Chelsea until the MATCH is ready.  

    We want to do everything we can to help our fellow tenants and our landlord, so:

    • For SATURDAY PERFORMANCES, we have received permission from the Joy School across Chelsea Blvd. to use their parking lot.  If it is convenient for you, please check this lot first for parking and walk across the courtyard to the theater. 
    • There's also quite a bit of on-street parking on Chelsea Blvd.     

     We hope this will also make it easier for YOU as you won't have to deal with the stress of a full Chelsea Market parking lot!
