THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME is presented through special arrangement with Music Theater International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also provided by MTI. www.mtishows.com
What makes a monster and what makes a man? This is the central theme of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, a sweeping, grand-scale musical from Disney Theatrical. Based on the 1996 Disney film and Victor Hugo’s 1831 novel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame tells the story of Quasimodo, the hunchbacked bell-ringer of Notre Dame, and his desire to one day be a part of the outside world. When he summons the courage to attend the Feast of Fools, he meets Esmeralda, a compassionate gypsy who protects him from an angry mob. But at the same time, Quasimodo’s master, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, and the new captain of the guard, Phoebus de Martin, fall in love with the beautiful girl. Adding to Quasimodo’s struggle is his punishment and derision from Frollo, following years of psychological abuse, and the danger posed by the gypsies, who are willing to kill any outsiders who venture into their secret hideout. But before Paris is burned to the ground, will Quasimodo be able to save Esmeralda from Frollo’s lust and anger? Will she return Quasimodo’s affection? Who is the true monster of Notre Dame?

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS: (courtesy of MTI)
Claude Frollo - Archdeacon of Notre Dame Cathedral and the most powerful cleric in Paris, he is the reluctant caretaker of Quasimodo. He will do whatever it takes to rid the city of the Roma “vermin,” even as he lusts after Esmeralda. Calculating, manipulative, and obsessive. Vocal range top: D4 /Vocal range bottom: E2
Jehan Frollo - Claude’s reckless younger brother. With Florika, he fathers Quasimodo, who he leaves in his brother’s care. Wild, passionate, and strong-willed. Vocal range top: Eb4 / Vocal range bottom: G#2
Florika - A Romani woman and Quasimodo’s mother.
Vocal range top: F5 /Vocal range bottom: C#4
Father Dupin - A priest of Notre Dame and Claude and Jehan’s guardian.
Vocal range top: A4 / Vocal range bottom: C4
Quasimodo - The deformed bell-ringer of Notre Dame and Claude Frollo’s charge. Lonely and staunchly obedient to Frollo, he possesses a vivid imagination that brings to life the bells and gargoyles of the cathedral. Despite his shyness and uncertainty, he quickly befriends Esmeralda. Big-hearted, and brave when need be.
Vocal range top: Bb4 /Vocal range bottom: Bb2
Clopin Trouillefou - The clever and charismatic King of the Roma. An air of mystery surrounds Clopin, who often leaves the scene in a puff of smoke. As the master of ceremonies for the Feast of Fools, he is witty and playful, but he boasts a darker, serious nature when not performing for the crowd.
Vocal range top: G4 /Vocal range bottom: C3
Captain Phoebus de Martin - Returning to Paris after serving in the war, Phoebus takes up his new position as Captain of the Cathedral Guard. Overconfident yet charming, this handsome, strong soldier makes the ladies swoon, yet his moral compass is also strong, and he openly defies the corrupted Frollo. Vocal range top: Ab4 /Vocal range bottom: Ab2
Lieutenant Frederic Charlus - Lieutenant of the Cathedral Guard and loyal friend to Phoebus.
Esmeralda - A beautiful and free-spirited Romani woman who possesses the strong sense of justice and morality that Frollo lacks. Compassionate, she frees Quasimodo from the frenzied mob at the Feast of Fools and, against her better judgment, falls for the cocky Phoebus.
Vocal range top: Db5 /Vocal range bottom: Eb3
King Louis XI - King of France, nicknamed the Prudent.
Tribunal - A judicial officer. Vocal range top: E4 / Vocal range bottom: G2
