After surviving a tragic and isolated childhood, Amelie heads out on her own, joyfully finding her way through Paris and making friends from all walks of life. Living in her imaginary world of make-believe and whimsy has been safe, but Amelie knows it is time to step out of her dreams and find joy for herself. With a romantic score, colorful characters, and a world of fantastical fun, Amelie is a beautiful tale for the dreamer in everyone. Based on the movie. Amelie is a musical based on the 2001 romantic comedy film with music by Daniel Messe, lyrics by Messé and Nathan Tysen and a book by Craig Lucas.
