THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME

The Area Premiere – Coming Fall 2017 To The Kelsey Theatre

MUSIC BY ALAN MENKEN | LYRICS BY STEPHEN SCHWARTZ
BOOK BY PETER PARNELL

DIRECTED BY FRANK FERRARA
MUSIC DIRECTION BY SHANNON FERRARA & MIKE GILCH

Based on the Victor Hugo novel and 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 deformed 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.

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

GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS

The Area Premiere – Coming Spring 2018 To The Kelsey Theatre

WRITTEN BY DAVID MAMET
DIRECTED BY KYRUS KEENAN WESTCOTT

This scalding comedy took Broadway and London by storm. Here is Mamet at his very best, writing about small-time, cutthroat real estate salesmen trying to grind out a living by pushing plots of land on reluctant buyers in a never-ending scramble for their share of the American dream. Revived on Broadway in 2005 and 2012, this masterpiece of American drama also became a celebrated film which starred Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alec Baldwin and Alan Arkin.

“Crackling tension… ferocious comedy and drama.” – The New York Times

“Wonderfully funny… A play to see, remember and cherish.” – New York Post
