Members of the cast perform a musical number during a recent dress rehearsal from the upcoming performance of The Hunchback of Notre Dame this Thursday, Friday and Saturday at Pickens High School.
It’s finally here. This Thursday, Friday and Saturday, The Hunchback of Notre Dame will be performed on stage at Pickens High School. Beautiful costumes combined with Disney music, a gothically-inspired set and performances from wonderful actors and community singers are coming together to bring the story of The Hunchback of Notre Dame to life on stage January 9, 10 and 11.
Hailed as a “true musical” by Artistic Director Ross Galbreath, the production pulls the characters and setting of Victor Hugo’s classic gothic novel and weaves Disney musical flair into one production.
The play follows the bell-ringer of the Notre Dame cathedral, the disfigured Quasimodo, and his struggle for acceptance into society. Quasimodo, his foster father, the tormented archdeacon Frollo; and the beautiful and doomed Gypsy Esmeralda are caught up in a tragedy that speaks to us of destiny and free will and of love and loss.
With a cast of 32 along with a 20-person choir, amazing costumes and period set decoration that gives the production that whole ambience of 13th century France and the Notre Dame Cathedral.
Galbreath, a veteran in bringing wonderful stage shows to Pickens County, said this is the biggest show his production company has done to date.
The show will be performed at the Pickens High School Performing Arts Center on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, January 9th, 10th and 11th. Performances will be at 7 p.m. nightly and there will be an additional performance on Saturday the 11th at 2 p.m.
Tickets may be purchased at the door or at FX Hair Salon, for $10.
