|Knoxville Children’s Theatre will present Bambi, Life In the Woods, a stage adaptation by James DeVita of the classic novel by Felix Salten. |
Bambi, a young forest deer, suddenly becomes heir to his father, the Great Prince. After Bambi encounters the new 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.
