DESCRIPTION: Quasimodo, the misshapen bell-ringer of Notre Dame Cathedral, longs to join the city of Paris during 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.
The beloved musical, based on the Victor Hugo novel of the same name, features an Academy Award-nominated score from the Disney film, including “Out There” and “God Help the Outcasts” along with new songs from famed composers Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Tangled) and Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Pippin, Wicked).
CONTENT ADVISORY: Please note this is a family-friendly production. Some technical effects may be scary for very young children.
The 2018-19 Carnegie Theatre Series is presented by the Otto M. Budig Family Foundation. Additional support provided by the Kentucky Department of Tourism.
