The Hunchback of Notre Dame

The Hunchback of Notre Dame

As the bells of Notre Dame’s cathedral sound in fifteenth-century Paris, Quasimodo - a deformed, captive bell-ringer - observes the city’s Feast of Fools from afar. Escaping his captor Frollo to join the festivities, Quasimodo is rejected by every reveler except the beautiful Gypsy, Esmeralda – with whom he is immediately smitten. However, a handsome Captain and Frollo are equally enthralled by her. As they vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a malevolent mission to destroy the Gypsies and steal her love. It’s up to an unlikely hero to ring true and save the day in this transformative musical celebration of love and acceptance.

When successful romance novelist Paul Sheldon awakes in a secluded home, rescued from a car crash by his “number one fan” Annie Wilkes, fiction quickly becomes stark reality.

When Annie demands that he rewrite his novel, Paul quickly realizes that the only way to avoid his own personal unhappy ending is to outwit the sociopathic bibliophile that seems bound and determined to keep him permanently bedridden.
