The Hunchback of Notre Dame

The Hunchback of Notre Dame
From the Academy Award-winning team comes a lushly scored retelling of Victor Hugo’s epic story of love, acceptance and what it means to be a hero.

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 Dame an instant classic. Audiences will be swept away by the magic of this truly unforgettable musical.

Backing tracks for Hunchback?
My name is Gavin McFall and my theatre company is looking into potentially performing Hunchback of Notre Dame for our 2018 musical. The theatre we rent out is very small and does not have a pit so we can only perform shows if we can acquire backing tracks. I was wondering if there were plans for show tracks to be released anytime soon. Thank you for any and all information!

Is it at all possible for the rights to come out sooner than expected? If show rehearsals would start in February of 2017, is it totally unlikely getting the rights would be possible for a high school production?

Amateur Rights Dates
Is it known which month of 2017 the amateur rights will be released? Because my school really wants to do this show but we would have to get the rights very early in 2017 in order to do it. If so, could we possibly reserve a "spot" of some sort when we get an answer?
