Upstage opens 'Hunchback' Friday

Upstage Theater’s production of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” is scheduled to run Friday through Sunday in Mountain View.

Based on Victor Hugo’s novel, the reinterpretation of the classic Disney film begins as the bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in 15th-century Paris. Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who longs to join the throngs, observes all of Paris reveling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda. But Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit – handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled.
