What makes a monster and what makes a man?

The Hunchback of Notre Dame is 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.

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?

This musical is brought to life for its Australian Premiere, by the Toowoomba Choral Society Youth Choir for two shows only on the iconic Empire stage.

The beautiful music includes The Bells of Notre Dame, God help the Outcasts, Hellfire, In a Place of Miracles, Someday and many more.

Please note: The musical is based on the Disney animated movie but has been rewritten for stage as a new, darker version. It includes themes of faith, power, discrimination, isolation, and sacrifice but also offers a powerful message of acceptance through rich storytelling.
