Auditions for The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Director – Dr. Carrie Klofach  |  Conductor- Dr. Kellie Brown  |  Vocal Directors- Dr. Noah DeLong and Dr. Carrie Klofach

Based on the Victor Hugo novel and songs from the Disney animated feature, 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.

The beloved musical, based on the Victor Hugo novel of the same name, features an Academy Award-nominated score from the Disney film, including “Out There” and “God Help the Outcasts” along with new songs from famed composers Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Tangled) and Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Pippin, Wicked.)
