"The Hunchback of Notre Dame" opens Saturday

Crown City Theatre Company is producing a musical adaptation of Victor Hugo’s “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” with book and lyrics by Gary Lamb, music by William A. Reilly, and directed by Thomas W. Ashworth at St. Matthews Lutheran GLBT Church in NOHO from December 1st through December 15th.
Several Actor’s Equity Performers will adorn the stage from Melissa Bailey (Madame de Gondelaurier) who has appeared on Broadway to local favorites Bill Mendieta (as Quasimodo) and Chris M. Allport (as the Prosecutor). Others involved include: Amy Bloom (Esmeralda), Harris Matthews (Claude Frollo), Johnny Ferreti (Clopin), Rachel Howe (Fleur de Lys), Derek Knight (Phoebus), Alissa-Nicole Koblentz (The Recluse) and Chris Kolb (Pierre).
One of the unique aspects of this production is that it is being performed in the sanctuary of St. Matthews Lutheran Church complete with vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows and choir loft – all imagined to be the soaring arcs, parapets and bells of the famed Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris
Another unique aspect is that Crown City has implemented a “PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN” policy for all performances, so there is no excuse not attend.

WHERE: St. Matthew’s Lutheran LGBT Church 11031 Camarillo Street in NOHO.
WHEN: Gala opening: Sat. December 1st @ 8p.m.Continuing Fri. and Sat. at 8pm and Sun. at 7p.m.Open ended with no performances Dec. 16th thru New Year’s Day.
ADMISSION: All performances PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN with suggested donations of $15 for adults and $8 for Children.

You're welcome. With my many duties as the Queen of the 31st Pasadena Doo Dah Parade, I may not be able to attend. But I wish you a full house every night!
