Chi Uni’s musical theatre company to premiere new musical

The University of Chichester’s Musical Theatre Performance Company is proud to present the World Premiere of this exciting new musical. Brought to you by the same team that produced sell-out productions of Legally Blonde and Parade, plus a World Premiere of Gulliver’s Travels in their 2016/17 season. Notre Dame is Produced by Andrew Wright, Directed by Jake Smith with Musical Direction from Ed Court, Choreography by James Berkery, Design by Amy Watts and Orchestrations from Adam Hoskins.

 Notre Dame is a new musical adaptation of Victor Hugo’s Hunchback of Notre Dame. Pierre Gringoire, a Parisian playwright, and poet conjure up the timeless tale of Quasimodo, the legendary bell ringer. Quasimodo defies his controlling adoptive Father, the Archdeacon, Frollo, and escapes from the Cathedral.  After meeting the famous Gypsy dancer, Esmeralda, at the Feast of Fools, we see Quasimodo’s rite of passage from outcast to hero. A story of religion, prejudice, and the triumph of freedom over fate.

Second-year student, Adam Stickler (Pictured), who plays the pivotal role of Quasimodo, comments on the experience “I have had an incredible year on the new Musical Theatre Performance degree, playing lead roles in all three productions so far, this one, however, is going to be the most challenging role yet! I am so pleased and very grateful to be playing Quasimodo, because of not only the character but the show itself is also a world premiere. I am beyond excited to be involved in, what I’m sure is going to be, an incredible experience”.

Notre Dame performs at The Alexandra Theatre, Belmont Street, Bognor Regis, PO21 1BL on 21st and 22nd June at 7:30pm and 23rd June at 2:30pm and 7:30pm.
