THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME
Music by Alan Menken
Lyrics by Stephen Scwhartz
Book by Peter Parnell
Based on the Victor Hugo novel and songs from the Disney film
Originally developed by Disney Theatrical Productions
Victor Hugo’s enduring tale of Quasimodo and Esmerelda is supported by soaring voices from West Michigan church and community choirs in this musical adaptation of the animated film.
The legendary bells of Notre Dame sound throughout 15th century Paris. Quasimodo, the indentured bellringer, longs to be a part of the city and escapes his devious caretaker, archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo. On the streets of Paris, however, his physical differences make Quasimodo the victim of cruelty by everyone except the beautiful gypsy, Esmerelda. Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit, though – the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the Quasimodo, Phoebus, and Frollo all vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the gypsies – and it’s up to Quasimodo to save them all.
