Agape Theater Company brings ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’ to life on stage

The Agape Theater Company has announced their upcoming musical of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.” Artistic Director Kathy Phipps shared her thoughts on the selection of this particular production: “One of the reasons we chose ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’ is because it is based on a classic piece of literature. Like the character of Javert in Victor Hugo’s ‘Les Misérables,’ this powerful story features Frollo, a man who by outward appearances seems virtuous, but whose heart is full of revenge and a lack of charity. Quasimodo, who is physically deformed, has a heart filled with kindness and love. The musical asks, ‘What makes a monster, and what makes a man?’ This important story reminds us of the grave danger of judging people by their physical appearance rather than by the way they treat others.”

In addition to the compelling story and characters, “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” also boasts a challenging and stunning musical score, featuring six- and eight-part harmony, and a choir that sings in Latin. Agape Theater Company, known for its outstanding choral singing in musicals, is sure to deliver a breathtaking performance that will leave audiences in awe.

Helmed by Director Brynn Hensley, the creative team includes David Turner as musical director, and Christine Osburn as choreographer. Notably, Fight Coordinator, Rachel Pergl returns to the team once again to ensure dynamic and realistic fight scenes. Hensley expressed her thoughts, “I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to direct this absolutely beautiful work of art. With a fabulous cast, incredible music, book, and a dedicated and talented creative team, I already cannot wait for opening night! My interpretation and ideas have been met with nothing but enthusiasm and open minds from everyone involved; this show is going to be magical.”

The lead roles will be played by a cast of skilled performers, including Ben Frederick as Quasimodo, Rebekah Barajas as Esmeralda and Aidan Lucas as Frollo.
