Based on the five-time Oscar nominated French film Le Fabuleux Destin D'Amélie Poulain, smash-hit Amélie The Musical brings the story of a quiet, inquisitive woman’s life in Montmartre to life on stage. Featuring Daniel Messe’s enchanting re-orchestrated musical score, this powerful and truly magnifique musical production will transport you to the romantic streets of Paris.
Originally produced by the Watermill theatre, Amélie The Musical enjoyed a sell-out run as well as an explosive UK tour in 2019. Directed by Micheal Fentiman and starring the wide-eyed, earnest Audrey Brisson as Amélie, the show beautifully and artistically captures the pure joie-de-vivre of the much-loved protagonist.

Set in 1975 Paris, Amélie Poulin works as a waitress in the winding streets of Montmartre. Leading an introverted life, Amélie has an alturistic spirit and is driven by a deep desire to make others happy. Whether that involves helping her eccentric friend Georgette find love or returning an old box of child-hood treasures to the previous tenant in her apartment, Amélie embarks on bizzare and mischievous schemes to help others.
While Amélie is preoccupied with making others happy, she finds herself falling for a man named Nino, another misfit, who works in a sex shop. Will the shy, romantic Amélie concentrate on her own happiness and follow her heart?
