MELROSE — Broken Leg Production’s “Amélie: A New Musical” is playing at Melrose Highlands Congregational Church, 355 Franklin St. in Melrose on August 15, 16, and 17 at 7:30pm. The charming musical will be sure to make you smile, find your inner child, and spark your curiosity for life.

Amélie is an extraordinary young woman who lives quietly in the world but loudly in her mind. She covertly improvises small but surprising acts of kindness that bring joy and mayhem. But when a chance at love comes her way, Amélie realizes that to find happiness she’ll have to risk everything and say what’s in her heart. Be inspired by this imaginative dreamer who finds her voice, discovers the power of connection, and sees possibility around every corner. “Amélie” is presented through special arrangement with Samuel French.

BLP has had a full summer of theatre so far producing three shows. Coming next is a community production of “Sound Of Music” auditioning this fall. Stay tuned for announcement on our fall, spring, and summer educational programming. Follow us on Instagram @brokenlegdrama, Facebook at  BrokenLegProductions and visit our website to learn more

Broken Leg Productions is the result of Artistic Director Adam Schuler’s desire to continue to produce high-quality theatrical productions in unique ways. One of BLP’s main goals is to create a family of artists who learn how to express themselves and to connect with the world through the arts. We are a young and energetic company that has grown by leaps and bounds. We love seeing our students grow with us and become more confident, self-aware of their talents and create lasting friendships.

The production is led by Artistic Director Adam Schuler, Production Manager Alison Butts, Music Director Becca Jones, Assistant Director Susannah List, Stage Manager Anna Kahler, Production Assistance Becca Flint, and Costumes Michaela Galego and Adam Schuler.
