Fall Musical: The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Based on the Victor Hugo novel and songs from the Disney animated feature, The Hunchback of Notre Dame showcases the film’s Oscar®-nominated score as well as new songs by Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz. Peter Parnell’s new book embraces story theatre and features verbatim passages from Hugo’s gothic novel.

The musical begins as the bells of Notre Dame resound through the famed cathedral in 15th-century Paris. Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who longs to be “Out There,” observes all of Paris reveling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit, though – the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the gypsies – and it’s up to Quasimodo to save them all.

A sweeping score and powerful story make The Hunchback of Notre Dame an instant classic. Audiences will be swept away by the magic of this truly unforgettable musical.

wizard

Spring Musical: The Wizard of Oz

By L. Frank Baum
Music and Lyrics by Harold Arlen &  EY Harburg

We’re off to see the wizard! Join Dorothy Gale, a small town girl from Kansas who gets swept up in a tornado and lands in the magical land of Oz, in her quest to the Emerald City to get back home! Along the way, she will meet many new friends who will accompany her in her adventure down the Yellow Brick Road. But the trip is not always smooth and straightforward. Dorothy and her friends will encounter evil witches, flying monkeys, and lions, tigers, and bears, oh my!  

Based on the beloved L. Frank Baum children’s novel and the iconic 1938 film starring Judy Garland, this adventure will have you and your whole family enjoying Dorothy’s magical trip in a land of endless imagination and song, with places like Munchkinland, the Haunted Forest, and the glamorous Emerald City. You will also be bouncing in your seat with the peppy score by Arlen and Harburg that features song like “Ding! Dong! The Witch is Dead!”, “If I Only Had a Brain/Heart/Nerve”, and the treasured “Over the Rainbow”.

So join PTG in this fun and festive adaptation of an audience-favorite musical that will have you leaving the theater reminding yourself that there really is “no place like home”.
