“Hunchback of Notre Dame” follows the disfigured Quasimodo, the bell ringer of Notre Dame Cathedral, who bides his time locked away in a tower. With only gargoyles to keep him company, he longs to be a part of the festival, as all of Paris is reveling in the “Feast of Fools”. He manages to escape the tower and enters the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit though – Captain Phoebus and Frollo, Quasimodo’s adoptive parent, are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the gypsies and it’s up to Quasimodo to save them all.
This sweeping score and powerful story is the retelling of Victor Hugo’s epic story of love, acceptance and what it means to be a hero. Come and share the magic of this truly unforgettable musical.
