The Hunchback of Notre Dame

It's almost here! On April 29, 30, or May 1, at 7pm, come out and support the 29 person cast and 26 person crew in this year's school play! Coyote Cast and Crew present: Victor Hugo's The Hunchback of Notre Dame, adapted by Tim Kelly.

Synopsis: This less macabre version of Hugo’s original is great for the whole family, driven by the inspirational message of inclusion and acceptance. The plot is tripartite: the story of a lonely Hunchback and his bourgeois guardian, the Archdeacon Frollo; the regal Captain Phoebus, heartthrob of France; and the Court of Miracles – the underbelly of Paris. All three are merged together by the mutual object of their affections: Esmerelda- a beautiful and caring gypsy. Come join this huge cast on a harrowing journey of love, imprisonment, murder, and sacrifice.

The show’s sets, props, costumes, lighting, sound, hair & makeup were also designed and created/obtained by students. One of our Grade 12 students, Molly McGuire, also composed original music, wrote original lyrics, and choreographed 5 musical numbers that are included in the show.
