Sunflower: The story of Amalie and Vincent

Sunflower is an original musical that tells the story of Amalie, a shy and sensitive 6th grader, who magically travels through the painting Cafe Terrace at Night and meets the 19th century artist Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) at the cafe. Amalie doesn’t fit in with her peers, who often exclude and bully her. Desperate to find a friend, she finds a kindred spirit in Van Gogh, who is living in 19th century Arles, France. As Amalie faces social pressure and bullying at school, she finds escape in the world of the painting. Van Gogh, who calls Amalie “Sunflower”, inspires her to believe in herself and understands her loneliness and pain. At the same time, Van Gogh suffers challenges of his own that eventually lead to his despair and suicide. After Amalie is betrayed by her peers, and also finds out about Vincent’s fate, she faces her own darkness.
