New ensemble members include Rachel Renee, Mark LeBeau, Jessica Lauren Fisher, Kelli Clevinger and Kendel Lester. New musical director is Robert Ollis. DeYoung penned book, music and lyrics for the world premiere, which is a revision of an earlier version of the tale he wrote for a production seen in Tennessee. The Hunchback of Notre Dame opened May 19 after previews from May 8. DeYoung is known for song hits "Lady," "Come Sail Away" and "Mr. Roboto."
Bailiwick artistic director David Zak directs the "unique and thrilling" production "that surrounds the audience with the epic tale of unrequited love." According to Bailiwick, "We meet the deformed bell-ringer Quasimodo, the tormented priest Fr. Frollo, and the Gypsy girl Esmerelda who entrances them both in a story of great power and beauty."
The Hunchback of Notre Dame plays Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM, and Sundays at 3:30 PM through Aug. 31.
