The Hunchback of Notre Dame Auditions

South Bend Civic Center

The Victor Hugo novel and Disney film songs are reborn on stage in this topsy-turvy musical. Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer at the Notre Dame Cathedral, has watched over Paris his whole life from a lonely tower. When the Feast of Fools comes to the city, everything changes. Quasimodo is captivated by the gypsy Esmeralda, but he isn’t the only one. The Captain of the Guard and the archdeacon are also vying for her attention. This leads to an all out manhunt for gypsies and those who support them – and it’s up to Quasimodo to save them all.

Clopin Trouillefou

The clever and charismatic King of the Gypsies. An air of mystery surrounds Clopin, who often leaves the scene in a puff of smoke. As the master of ceremonies for the Feast of Fools, he is witty and playful, but he boasts a darker, serious nature when not performing for the crowd.

Lieutenant Frederic Charlus

Lieutenant of the Cathedral Guard and loyal friend to Phoebus.

Audition for the off-stage choir for this production (to be located in the balcony). With a less demanding rehearsal schedule and no memorization requirements, the choir gives you a chance to perform much of the beloved epic music in the score and help raise the roof as we transform our auditorium into the Cathedral of Notre Dame. Rehearsal schedule will be determined after auditions. Strong music reading skills are encouraged.
