Aurora Theatre’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame
128 E Pike St
Lawrenceville, GA 30045
Based on the novel by Victor Hugo with songs from the Disney film, The Hunchback of Notre Dame transports audiences to 1482 Paris. There they follow the tales of Quasimodo, a deformed bell ringer in a cold, cathedral tower who discovers his inner strength, a conflicted priest, Frollo, who battles the specter of damnation and Phoebus, a dashing soldier who shuns duty to pursue Esmeralda, a beautiful Gypsy dancer. At every turn, a malevolent force propels each of them toward fate. This musical retelling of the beloved medieval love story features a lush score by Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast) and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin) — the only stage collaboration between the two giants of the American musical theatre.
