Recipient of the AATE Distinguished Play Award Here for the first time is a stage version of the ORIGINAL story of BAMBI written by Austrian novelist Felix Saltern in the 1920's. It is an eloquent, fascinating tale of a young deer growing up in the woods. Open stage and light. 5 women, 4 men who with variable casting may play 13 roles. Felix Salten's classic book of BAMBI tells a haunting tale of growing up. Bambi truly becomes heir to his father, the Great Prince when, having encountered and mastered for the first time the novel feelings of love, fear, loneliness and independence, he comes to understand that all of Earth's creatures are guided by a greater force than themselves. All are dependent on each. Intertwined in this great story is Bambi's growing awareness of the fragility of the forest environment and the impact of human encroachment on all of the forest inhabitants. A superbly theatrical and sensitive work of theatre, appealing to children and adults alike.
