Bowie Playhouse - "Amelie"

Sunday, August 11, 2019

The musical opens with an introduction of young Amélie and her family. Amélie is born to a germaphobe father, Raphael, and neurotic mother, Amandine, and she feels isolated and emotionally distant from her parents. She takes solace in her telescope, which she uses to view the universe from afar. Her only contact with her parents comes in the form of a monthly health check-up from her father. One day, Amélie gets so excited to see him that her heart races and Raphael misdiagnoses her with a heart condition. Years pass, and Amélie becomes bored with her quiet life and distant father, and she decides to leave home. Life becomes very interesting then.
