Theater Works presents 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame'

Local cast announced for final main stage production of 2022-23 season

Posted

For the final main stage production in the 2022-23 season, Theater Works will present "The Hunchback of Notre Dame," Feb. 17-March 5, in Gyder Theater at Peoria Center for the Performing Arts, 10580 N. 83rd Drive.

Feb. 26 will be an ASL-accompanied performance.

From the Academy Award-winning team comes a lushly scored retelling of Victor Hugo’s epic story of love, acceptance and what it means to be a hero.

Based on the Victor Hugo novel, with songs from the Disney animated feature, "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" showcases the film’s Academy Award-nominated score, as well as new songs by Menken and Schwartz.

Peter Parnell’s new book embraces story theatre and features verbatim passages from Hugo’s gothic novel.

The musical begins as the bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in fifteenth-century Paris. Quasimodo, the bell-ringer who longs to be “Out There,” 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.

This production is directed by Chris Hamby with music direction by Lincoln Wright and choreography by Paul Pedersen.

A sweeping score and powerful story make The Hunchback of Notre Dame an instant classic. Audiences will be swept away by the magic of this truly unforgettable musical.
