tour of Amelie

The Broadway musical based on the hit film Amélie will have its UK premiere in 2019 opening at the Watermill Theatre in Newbury next April before heading off on tour across the UK in May. When the UK tour ends  the plan is to tour it internationally.

A Watermill Theatre production in association with Hartshorn–Hook productions, Selladoor Worldwide and Asia Broadway Company, Michael Fentiman (The Importance of Being Earnest) will direct. He said, As a theatre maker, staging Amélie as a musical is one of those exciting, terrifying challenges, that you absolutely cannot turn down. It is a gentle, magical and uncynically joyous piece - that takes its audience on a surreal flight of fancy, into the mind of an extraordinary young woman, Amélie Poulain. It's going to be a huge pleasure to open the show at the beautiful Watermill Theatre before then taking our extremely talented actor musician cast around the UK.  Star casting and the creative team for the show is still to be announced.

The musical has music by Daniel Messé, lyrics by Messé and Nathan Tysen and a book by Craig Lucas. It first opened  at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre in September 2015 starring Samantha Barks (Les Misérables, Pretty Woman) before running on Broadway in 2017 starring Phillipa Soo (Hamilton).

Audrey Brisson, who  previously starred in Pinocchio at the National Theatre as well as the UK tours of La Strada and The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk, will play the title role in the show, with Danny Mac playing daydreamer Nino Quincampoix from 22nd  May on tour, while Chris Jared will play the part during the Watermill Theatre performances from 11th April to 18th May.

The rest of the cast joining him and join Audrey Brisson includes Oliver Grant as Lucien / Mysterious Man, Samuel Morgan-Grahame as Joseph / Fluffy, Sioned Saunders as Gina, Johnson Willis as Collignon / Dufayel, Caolan McCarthy as Hippolito / Elton John, Faoileann Cunningham as Georgette / Sylvia, Kate Robson-Stuart as Suzanne, Josh Sneesby as Blind Beggar / Gnome, Jez Unwin as Raphael / Bretodeau and Rachel Dawson as Andamine / Philomene.

Amelie the Musical  is based on the 2001 romantic comedy film by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, which won two BAFTA Awards telling the story of Amélie, an imaginative dreamer who lives in Paris.  She is  an extraordinary young woman who lives quietly in the world but loudly in her mind improvising  small but surprising acts of kindness that bring joy and mayhem. But when a chance at love comes her way, she  realizes that to find happiness she’ll have to risk everything and say what’s in her heart.  By finding her voice, she discovers the power of connection, finding possibilities  around every corner.
