“Hunchback

Music by Alan Menken | Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz | Book by Peter Parnell

Based on the Victor Hugo novel and songs from the Disney film

Presented by Florida Hospital | Produced by Garden Theatre

In this epic musical based on the Victor Hugo novel, Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer of Notre Dame longs to escape his captivity by the Archdeacon Frollo and partake in the Feast of Fools in 15th-century Paris. Initially enthralled by the revelry, he is treated cruelly by the boisterous crowd until a beautiful and sympathetic gypsy named Esmeralda comes to his rescue. Quasimodo is captivated by her free spirit, as is the Archdeacon and the handsome Captain Phoebus. Frollo’s mission to cleanse Paris of lechery and foreigners – including the gypsies – conflicts with his desire, and, in the end, Quasimodo must make the choice to leave his sanctuary of stone and become a hero to the one he loves.
