The 2016 Music Circus season concludes with the Northern California premiere of a new musical from the mind of Victor Hugo, inspired by one of the most epic stories ever told: The Hunchback of Notre Dame. This daring production sets the classic tale of love, vengeance, and compassion to one of the most sweeping scores ever written for the stage.  It’s the only stage collaboration between two masters of American musical theatre, Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast) and Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin).

Music Circus is one of just three companies that Disney Theatricals has licensed to stage the musical this season, and it has been previously produced only twice in the United States.  With a lush, emotionally rich score and beautiful choral arrangements, this epic musical is a dramatic retelling of the tragic Hugo classic.  Darker than the Disney film, closer in plot to the novel, the musical showcases the film’s Oscar®-nominated score and introduces stunning new songs.

Content Guide: This new musical is a dramatization of the classic Victor Hugo novel. While this version draws from the animated Disney film and includes many of the same songs, the plot and themes follow more closely to the original, and significantly darker, novel. Themes include religious hypocrisy, temptation, the maltreatment of people with disabilities and the marginalization of minorities. The show contains mild violence and mature content.
