Carroll Theatre Presents Winter Production Amelie

Carroll Theatre is proud to announce their winter production of the award-winning musical Amelie, running from Thursday, November 14 – Sunday, November 17  in the Carroll Senior High School Auditorium.  Tickets are available online here and are $20 for adults if bought in advance, $25 at the door, and $10 for students. Carroll Theatre’s production of Amelie will run Thursday, November 14 at 7 p.m., Friday, November 15 at 7 p.m., Saturday November 16 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, November 17 at 2 p.m.

This 2017 Broadway musical is based on the award-winning 2001 film of the same name! While times may be hard for dreamers, dreaming is all Amélie Poulain does. After surviving a tragic and isolated childhood, Amélie heads out on her own, joyfully finding her way through Paris and making friends from all walks of life: Suzanne, a trapeze artist-turned-cafe owner; Georgette, a hypochondriac tobacconist; Julian Dufayel, an artist with brittle bone disease; and many more. Through a chance discovery, Amélie finds a child’s box of treasures in the floor of her apartment, and sets out to return it. After her success, and the joy it brings to Bretodeau, the owner, Amélie resolves to anonymously do good for those around her. Most importantly, Amélie finds love in the form of Nino, a mysterious young man, and his photo album. Living in her imaginary world of make-believe and whimsy has been safe, but Amélie 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, Amélie is a beautiful tale for the dreamers in everyone.

Carroll Theatre is offering all CISD faculty and staff a complimentary ticket to the performance of your choice, as well as 50% off all other tickets you purchase at the door.  Due to construction on the CSHS campus, please use the Peytonville entrance and park in the lot in front of the Auditorium/Gym.
