Directed by Kurt Gillins, from Valpo Chamber.
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, Esmerelda.
