Amélie (new musical)
Book by Craig Lucas

Lyrics by Nathan Tysen & Daniel Messé
Based on the motion picture by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Guillaume Laurant
Directed by Robert Westenberg
Showing at the Craig Hall Coger Theatre

Raised by emotionally distant yet overly protective parents, young Amélie survives a lonely childhood through the power of her lush imagination.After leaving home to work in a Paris café, she discovers a box of childhood treasures that belonged to the previous owner of her apartment. She decides to return it to him anonymously and thus begins a series of covert acts of kindness that bring joy to those around her. But will she take a chance on her own happiness? Disguising her identity, she reaches out to Nino, a young man who seems to be a kindred spirit, and discovers the power of human connection. With its generous heart, whimsical charm and indomitable spirit, Amélie celebrates the world of possibilities that dreamers can create.
