Tonight's performance of Once on Wednesday, February 20 at 8:00pm has been cancelled due to weather and for the safety of our performers, staff, and patrons. Olney Theatre Center administrative offices and box office are currently closed due to inclement weather.

This colorful musical captures the blithe yet touching spirit of Ludwig Bemelmans’ much loved Madeline series. This amusing tale traces the adventures of a young Parisian girl who – despite starting off on the wrong foot with a mischievous new neighbor – eventually learns that first impressions aren’t everything. Told with gentle humor, and featuring a beautiful musical score, this amusing tale of enemies-become-friends will charm and entertain children and adults alike.
