OSMaD's production of The Hunchback of Notre Dame
AboutOSMaD is proud to bring the Victorian premiere of The Hunchback of Notre Dame to life on stage in December 2023. The Hunchback of Notre Dame is a musical based on the classic novel by Victor Hugo, with songs from the Disney movie by Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz. The show tells the story of Quasimodo, a hunchbacked bell-ringer who lives in the cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris. Quasimodo longs to be accepted by society but is shunned and ridiculed for his appearance. He becomes infatuated with the beautiful gypsy dancer Esmeralda, who is also the object of desire for the evil archdeacon Frollo.
Exploring themes of love, acceptance, and societal prejudice, our production will focus on the motif of light vs dark and explore how the characters evolve. The score features powerful ballads and soaring anthems, including the iconic "Out There," "God Help the Outcasts," and "Hellfire." The musical has been praised for its beautiful score, strong performances, and powerful message.
