“The Hunchback of Notre Dame” The 5th Avenue Season Finale
June 1, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
The final show of the 2017/18 season will be the Pacific Northwest premiere of the breathtaking musical masterpiece, The Hunchback of Notre Dame (June 1-24, 2018). This remarkable work complete with a 30-person choir is a tale of sweeping romance unfolds onstage on a grand scale. A glorious reimagining of Victor Hugo’s epic masterpiece, this powerful tale of love, faith and prejudice will leave audiences utterly spellbound. The lush, beautiful score is unlike anything in musical theater today, featuring songs from the Disney animated feature and new music from legendary composer Alan Menken (iconic Disney films and Broadway musicals including: The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and Newsies) and lyrics by Tony Award®-winner Stephen Schwartz (Broadway sensations including Wicked, Godspell and Pippin). This 5th Avenue staging will be directed by Glenn Casale, who staged the acclaimed production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid at The 5th Avenue Theatre last winter. Of the production’s staging at the Sacramento Music Circus, the Sacramento Bee proclaimed “Casale’s subtle touches highlight the story’s tugging sense of our shared humanity and leave a lasting impression.”
