The Hunchback of Notre Dame @ Theatre Cedar Rapids | Cedar Rapids | Iowa | United States

Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, Book by Peter Parnell

With songs from the beloved Disney movie, Victor Hugo’s epic masterpiece comes to life in a visually stunning tale of passion, acceptance, and what it means to be a hero. Audiences will be spellbound by the magic of this powerful musical experience! From the genius minds who brought us Wicked, The Little Mermaid, and Beauty and the Beast, this beautiful production will to be an event to remember.

Content Advisory: The Hunchback of Notre Dame is recommended for ages 10 and up.
While highly entertaining — featuring a mesmerizing musical score and beautiful visuals — this production contains darker, more mature themes than most Disney® stories.
Parents are encouraged to call the TCR box office 319-366-8591 for more information about age-appropriateness. Thank you!

SYNOPSIS:
The bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in fifteenth-century Paris. Quasimodo, a 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, Archdeacon Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda. — But Quasi isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit. Handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the gypsies. It’s up to Quasi — with a little help from his magical gargoyle friends — to save them all.
