Adapted from the novel by Victor Hugo and the Disney animated feature, the stage version of THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME features a book by Peter Parnell and additional songs and music from the team of Schwartz and Menken.

Set in Paris in 1482, the well-known story revolves around Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who lives in the bell tower of Notre Dame Cathedral and whose only contact with the outside world is Archdeacon Claude Frollo.  


When Quasimodo escapes for one day, he encounters the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda, who also enthralls Frollo and his handsome Captain of the Guard, Phoebus.  As the three men vie for Esmeralda’s attention, the situation escalates until it envelops all of Paris.


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.


***Please note that this stage adaptation has a dark portrayal that some audiences may feel is not suitable for younger children***


This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International.
