The Amarillo Little Theatre Academy and AAA Electric are proud to present the regional premiere of The Hunchback of Notre Dame. This new version of the story embraces the darker elements of the original Victor Hugo novel to provide audiences a dynamic, serious story which soars with the fantastic music of Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz.
Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer of the Notre Dame Cathedral, has spent his life locked in a tower by his guardian, archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo. Longing to be with other people, Quasimodo escapes to spend one day ‘out there,’ which leads to his chance encounter with the enchanting 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 and Frollo attempts to destroy the gypsies, the musical poses the question, “What makes a monster and what makes a man?” and explores what it means to be a truly good.
