CORONAVIRUS NOTICE: many venues are following the latest Government advice and taking extra precautions or postponing events, to protect the health of their staff and the public. Please check the websites of individual venues for their policies before making any plans to attend.
What makes a monster and what makes a man? This is the central theme of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, a musical based on the **Victor Hugo** novel and including the songs and Academy Award-nominated score from the Disney animated feature, along with new songs by **Alan Menken** and **Stephen Schwartz**.

The musical tells the story of Quasimodo, the bell-ringer of Notre Dame, who longs to be *Out There* with all of fifteenth-century Paris. Held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd at the Feast of Fools, 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!

Let **Colchester Operatic Society** sweep you away with the magic of this truly unforgettable musical as they perform this powerful story and fill the stage with beautiful choral harmonies. This local amateur dramatic company are well known for producing professional quality shows at this theatre and are excited to be back on the Mercury stage after performing Oliver! in collaboration with us in Autumn 2019 at Mercury at Abbey Field.

Presented by Colchester Operatic Society

This is a one night only event where you’ll get the opportunity to meet the amazing COS performers and ask them any questions you have about themselves and the show!
The event will take place after the 3pm performance on **Sun 30 Jan** and the cast will be led in a Q&A format to give insight into the work, challenges, and operatic score of this incredible musical.
The event will not be ticketed, although donations are always welcome, so simply stick around after the performance and join in the fun.
