Disney Theatrical Productions is currently developing The Hunchback of Notre Dame into a new stage musical based on Victor Hugo’s famous 1831 novel and the 1996 Disney animated feature. This is a reinvention of the 1999 German production Der Glockner von Notre Dame. This new approach to the material incorporates a “story theatre” style of dramatization in an intimate staging. The epic tale is set in late 15th century Paris. The Hunchback of Notre Dame investigates “what makes a monster and what makes a man.” This musical features the Oscar nominated score by Alan Menken (music) and Stephen Schwartz (lyrics) with a new book by Peter Parnell.


20s, deformed and reclusive. Longs to see the outside world, but staunchly loyal to his master, Frollo. Possesses great vulnerability, but covers a deep well of pain and rage. This actor will be physically representing Quasimodo’s deformity, much like in An Elephant Man. Therefore actors submitted for this role must be dexterous and flexible. Strong tenor. Range Bb 2 to C5. (ROLE IS ON OFFER)

righteousness. He struggles with the conflict between the self denial required by his religious belief and his strong sexual desire for Esmerelda. This struggle ultimately drives him mad. Baritone with a rich lower register. Range: F2 to F4. For EPA audition, please sing a song featuring the lower part of range. (ROLE IS ON OFFER)

20s, exquisitely beautiful, exotic and oozing with sexuality. A free-spirited gypsy who has often gotten into trouble for speaking her mind and standing up for what she believes in. Mezzo. Range E3 to Eb 5. For EPA audition, please sing contemporary pop theatre (not rock) song. (ROLE IS ON OFFER)

30s, dashing captain of the Cathedral Guard. Leading man type who is conflicted between following his duty and doing what’s right. Tenor. Range: C3 to A4. (ROLE IS ON OFFER)
