THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTREDAME
A HAOS Productions Musical
A lushly scored retelling of an epic story of love, acceptance and what it means to be a hero.
From the Academy Award-winning team including two giants of musical theatre - Stephen Schwartz and Alan Menken, comes a luscious retelling of Victor Hugo’s epic novel of love, acceptance and what it means to be a hero.
Packed full of all the songs from the hugely popular 1996 Disney animated film, this sweeping score and powerful story make The Hunchback of Notre Dame an instant classic, and is sure to be another smash-hit for HAOS members and audiences alike.
The musical begins as the bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in fifteenth-century Paris. Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who longs to be "Out There," observes all of Paris reveling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins 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 – the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo 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.
A sweeping score and powerful story make The Hunchback of Notre Dame an instant classic. Audiences will be swept away by the magic of this truly unforgettable musical.
