Quasimodo (the Hunchback) longs to live among the Parisians he watches from his isolated bell tower, but he is kept hidden by his caretaker, Archdeacon Frollo. However, there comes a day when Quasimodo breaks free of his stony prison, leading him to meet the first person to ever show the Hunchback kindness, a person that will alter his life and the city of Paris forever: the gypsy, Esmeralda. Audiences are sure to be captivated once more by the familiar storyline and Disney songs included in this gripping and dark musical rendition of the tale of love and justice. The work of the young men and women backstage parallels the compelling talent displayed onstage, as student designers, actors, and crew members help bring the show to life. From the construction of the famous Rose South window to the resonating chords of the Latin choir, the combined efforts of the cast and crew will make this performance one audiences will not soon forget!
