Sophisticated stagecraft, elaborate costumes and props and rousing choreography bring the unknown world of a courageous young woman to the musical stage with Pauline - Courage Changes the World. In 19th century Lyon, Pauline Marie Jaricot breaks with the rules of fine society and puts her life and everything she owns at the disposal of the poorest of the poor. With her courage and enthusiasm, the daughter of a silk merchant quickly infects other people. Her actions are accompanied by self-doubt - in the form of Monsieur Discourage and his servant, the bat Ferdinand. Nevertheless - Pauline becomes a friend, a role model, a heroine for many. Her ideas live on to this day - in the Pontifical Mission Societies worldwide.
