AMÉLIE The Musical features stars from both sides of the Atlantic during its residency at the Alhambra.

The title role in this adaptation of a hit French film is French-Canadian stage and screen performer Audrey Brisson.

She takes to the stage at the Bradford theatre until Saturday July 6 with Strictly Come Dancing competitor, West End star and TV actor Danny Mac.

Audrey plays Amélie Poulain, an imaginative and shy romantic with a gift for helping others, while Danny plays sweet daydreamer Nino Quincampoix.

The musical is described as a vibrant re-conception of the five-time Oscar-nominated film, with new orchestrations.

It has garnered critical and public acclaim and five-star reviews from the national press since its gala performance earlier this year.

Amélie is the story of an astonishing young woman who lives quietly in the world, but loudly in her mind. She secretly improvises small, but extraordinary acts of kindness that bring happiness to those around her.

But when a chance at love comes her way, Amélie realises that to find her own contentment she’ll have to risk everything and say what’s in her heart. Although times are hard for dreamers, Amélie is someone to believe in.

Danny Mac captured the nation’s hearts and received overwhelming support during his time on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing in 2016, with a series of perfect scores taking him to the final.

Having begun his performing career at an early age in Cameron Mackintosh’s tour of Les Miserables, he reprised the role a year later in the West End.

His other theatre credits include Wicked (West End), Legally Blonde (Curve Theatre), On The Town (Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre), White Christmas (Leicester Curve) and his award-winning turn in Sunset Boulevard (UK Tour).

Audrey Brisson’s theatre credits include The Elephantom, Pinocchio and Pericles (National Theatre), Midnight’s Pumpkin and The Wild Bride (Kneehigh), The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe (Kensington Gardens), Dead Dog in a Suitcase & Other Love Songs (Kneehigh), Romeo and Juliet (Rose Theatre, Kingston), The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk (Kneehigh), The Grinning Man (Bristol Old Vic), The Strada (UK Tour & The Other Palace).
