THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME

The Epic Love Story Live On Stage.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame is the only stage collaboration from two masters of the American musical theatre, composer Alan Menken and lyricist Stephen Schwartz. In this brand new production, a lush, emotionally rich score highlights the music’s orchestral power and choral beauty in an intimate retelling of the famous love story set in fifteenth-century Paris. Victor Hugo's story of love and aloneness, obsession and heroism is retold with a simple sophistication live on-stage!

Opens: May 10, 2018
Closes: May 19, 2018
Location: Marjorie Lyons Playhouse,
on the campus of Centenary College
