THE SHOW:

The unforgettable characters from the beloved novel come to thrilling, laugh-happy life in this funny and frill-free “festival” adaptation of Victor Hugo’s popular literary classic.  Outside the great Notre Dame cathedral 50 years after the original story’s fateful events, a troupe of youthful players leads the rabble of Paris — and sometimes even the audience — in recreating the riotous adventures of the misshapen but tender-hearted bell ringer Quasimodo.  Of course, the story wouldn’t be complete without the beguiling gypsy dancer Esmeralda and her clever goat Djali, dashing Captain Phoebus, despicably devious Dom Frollo, romantic and starving poet Pierre, the down-to-earth gang-leading Queen of Thieves, comically bitter recluse Paquette, and more!  The Hunchback of Notre Dame provides a fast-paced, fun-filled opportunity for a large cast of actors to become engaged in a literary masterpiece with imagination, ingenuity and lots of laughter.
