THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME (Summer Broadway Musical Theatre)

THE CULTURE HOUSE SUMMER BROADWAY THEATRE production has become a successful Kansas City theatre tradition! Pulling from some of the most talented performers in Kansas City, we have been able to produce incredible and award-winning productions for the past 5 years: LES MISERABLES at Yardley Hall - 2013, BIG RIVER at The Kauffman Center - 2014, INTO THE WOODS at Yardley Hall - 2015, BIG FISH at The Kauffman Center - 2016, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR at the Polsky Theater - 2017 ... and now for the summer of 2018!!!!!

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.
