A Novel Idea For “Bambi” At Chattanooga Theatre Centre
A hundred years ago, a coming-of-age novel written by an Austrian was first published in Berlin: “Bambi: A Life in the Woods.”
That same year - 1923 - the Walt Disney Company was founded in Los Angeles.
Nearly twenty years after that - in 1942 - Disney would release its animated adaptation of “Bambi,” known worldwide ever since.
On Friday, Chattanooga Theatre Centre premieres its stage version of “Bambi” that revisits the novel.
Scott Dunlap is the director - and Kristiana Russell plays Bambi’s mother.
