Transporting audiences into one of the greatest literary works of all-time, The Hunchback of Notre Dame is set to kick off the 2017-2018 season at Aurora Theatre July 20 - August 27. In partnership with Theatrical Outfit of In The Heights and Memphis acclaim, the show is based on the worldwide bestselling Victor Hugo novel with songs from the Disney film. This grand production will sweep crowds away into the adventures of a motley crew of characters in 1482 Paris, as they discover the true meaning of humanity. 

“Many know and love this story, whether from reading the novel or watching the film,” says Justin Anderson, associate artistic director of Aurora Theatre. “At its heart, the Hunchback of Notre Dame is a story of faith: a faith in something beyond us and the faith that we are each something bigger.”                                                                                                               

Under the direction of Anderson, The Hunchback of Notre Dame traces the journey of Quasimodo, a deformed bell ringer in a cold, cathedral tower, as he discovers his inner strength. His guardian Archdeacon Frollo is torn between his vows to the church and his obsession with the beautiful dancer Esmeralda. This epic tale set to music features an award-winning score by Alan Menken of Disney’s The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz of Wicked and Pippin fame.

Vocal powerhouse Haden Rider stars as Quasimodo, joined by David DeVries, best known to Atlanta audiences as Scrooge in the Alliance Theatre’s A Christmas Carol, as the conflicted Dom Claude Frollo. The stunning Julissa Sabino plays Esmeralda, while stars Kevin Harry as Clopin Trouillefou and Lowrey Brown as Captain Phoebus de Martin help lead the impressive cast of twenty-four that will give voice to this award-winning score.
