The Children’s Performing Arts Series at Stephen F. Austin State University will present two performances of the amusing tale “Madeline and the Bad Hat” on Wednesday, March 6. ArtsPower’s colorful musical captures the blithe yet touching spirit of Ludwig Bemelmans’ much loved Madeline series. Told with gentle humor, and featuring a beautiful musical score, this story of enemies-become-friends will charm and entertain children and adults alike. The show targets children in prekindergarten through third grade. Performances are at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the SFA campus. Tickets are $7.50 for individuals and $6 per person for groups of 20 or more. To order tickets, call (936) 468-6407 or (888) 240-ARTS.
