Description: In 15th Century Paris, the world seems colorful and bright, but Quasimodo has been living alone in the shadows all his life. How will the world see him when finally steps into the light? Backed by a striking score and featuring popular songs from the Disney animated film, this musical tells a timeless story of love, acceptance, and finding the hero within. Rated PG
CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS: Please note, we are devoted to diverse casting both in ethnicity and gender expression.
Quasimodo (Male presenting actor of any ethnicity) The deformed bell-ringer of Notre Dame and Claude Frollo’s charge. Lonely and staunchly obedient to Frollo, he possesses a vivid imagination that brings to life the bells and gargoyles of the cathedral. Despite his shyness and uncertainty, he quickly befriends Esmeralda. Big-hearted, and brave when need be. Vocal range top: Bb4 Vocal range bottom: Bb2
Clopin Trouillefou (Any gender actor of any ethnicity) The clever and charismatic King of the Roma. An air of mystery surrounds Clopin, who often leaves the scene in a puff of smoke. As the master of ceremonies for the Feast of Fools, he is witty and playful, but he boasts a darker, serious nature when not performing for the crowd. Vocal range top: G4 Vocal range bottom: C3
Claude Frollo (Male presenting actor of any ethnicity) Archdeacon of Notre Dame Cathedral and the most powerful cleric in Paris, he is the reluctant caretaker of Quasimodo. He will do whatever it takes to rid the city of the Roma “vermin,” even as he lusts after Esmeralda. Calculating, manipulative, and obsessive. Vocal range top: D4 Vocal range bottom: E2
Captain Phoebus de Martin (Male presenting actor of any ethnicity) Returning to Paris after serving in the war, Phoebus takes up his new position as Captain of the Cathedral Guard. Overconfident yet charming, this handsome, strong soldier makes the ladies swoon, yet his moral compass is also strong, and he openly defies the corrupted Frollo. Vocal range top: Ab4 Vocal range bottom: Ab2
Esmeralda (Female presenting BIPOC actor) A beautiful and free-spirited Romani woman who possesses the strong sense of justice and morality that Frollo lacks. Compassionate, she frees Quasimodo from the frenzied mob at the Feast of Fools and, against her better judgment, falls for the cocky Phoebus. Vocal range top: Db5 Vocal range bottom: Eb3
Saint Aphrodisius (Any gender actor of any ethnicity) A stained-glass image that comes to life. Vocal range top: E4 Vocal range bottom: B2
Jehan Frollo (Male presenting actor of any ethnicity) Claude’s reckless younger brother. With Florika, he fathers Quasimodo, who he leaves in his brother’s care. Wild, passionate, and strong-willed. Vocal range top: Eb4 Vocal range bottom: G#2
Florika (Female presenting BIPOC actor) A Romani woman and Quasimodo’s mother. Vocal range top: F5 Vocal range bottom: C#4
Father Dupin (Male presenting actor of any ethnicity) A priest of Notre Dame and Claude and Jehan’s guardian. Vocal range top: A4 Vocal range bottom: C4
