THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME (Alan Menken & Stephen Schwarz) - AmEgos Theatre, Wantage

4 April 2024 - 7:30pm - 6 April 2024 - 7:30pm

AmEgos Theatre is proud to be the first company in Oxfordshire to stage this magnificent musical.

What makes a monster and what makes a man?
The Hunchback of Notre Dame tells the story of Quasimodo, who has been kept within the bell tower of Notre Dame for his whole life, but longs to be 'Out There'  as 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. 
At the same time, Quasimodo’s guardian, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, and the new captain of the guard, Phoebus de Martin, fall in love with Esmeralda. 
Will Quasimodo be able to save Esmeralda from Frollo’s lust and anger? And who is the true monster of Notre Dame?

A sweeping score and powerful story make The Hunchback of Notre Dame an instant classic. Using the magnificent surroundings of the medieval Wantage Parish Church as a backdrop to the story, audiences will be swept away by the magic of this truly unforgettable musical.

With some adult themes, unlike the animated film, this is not a show for very young children
