‘Amélie The Musical’ to transfer to London’s The Other Palace this Christmas!

Producers have today announced that the critically acclaimed Amélie The Musical will transfer to London’s The Other Palace for a limited Christmas season from 29 November 2019 to 1 February 2020, following its sell-out season premiere at the Watermill Theatre in Newbury this April and its current UK tour.

With music by Hem’s Daniel Messé, lyrics by Nathan Tysen and Daniel Messé, and book by Craig Lucas, this new musical adaptation of the five-time Oscar®-nominated film, co-written by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Guillaume Laurant, is directed by Michael Fentiman and stars French-Canadian stage and screen star Audrey Brisson as Amélie Poulain.

The full cast includes Sophie Crawford, Faoileann Cunningham, Rachel DawsonOliver Grant, Chris Jared, Caolan McCarthy, Samuel Morgan-Grahame, Emma Jane Morgan, Kate Robson-Stuart, Josh Sneesby, Jez Unwin and Johnson Willis.

Amélie is the story of an astonishing young woman who lives quietly in the world, but loudly in her mind.

She secretly improvises small, but extraordinary acts of kindness that bring happiness to those around her. But when a chance at love comes her way, Amélie realises that to find her own contentment she’ll have to risk everything and say what’s in her heart.

Although times are hard for dreamers, Amélie is someone to believe in…

 I really hope London audiences will be enchanted by our little Parisian Tale. The show was originally created in the beautiful and inspiring Watermill Theatre, with some of the most skilled performers and creatives I have ever had the privilege to work with. We are led by the wonderful Audrey Brisson, who (I am sure you will agree) was born to play the role of ‘Amelie’. Amelie is a show about making connections, the simple acts of kindness that pull people closer, not further apart… In such divisive times, we all need a little piece of Amelie.”
