The Hunchback of Notre Dame

A New Musical
Ages 12–18 | September 19–October 30

Performance in the Walt Disney Theater


This professional-quality, concert-style production will include blocking and movement, full lighting and sound design, along with minimal costume and set design features.

The musical begins as the bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in 15th-century Paris. Quasimodo 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.
