This is a non-Equity Production
(All roles are available. There are five principle roles and fourteen ensemble/congregant roles. Roles maarked with an (*) will be portrayed by members of the ensemble/congregation. Listed ages are approximate.)
Quasimodo (M) 18-30 Vocal range: Bb2 - Bb5
The deformed bell-ringer of Notre Dame and Claude Frollo's charge. Lonely and staunchly obedient to Frollo, he possesses a vivid imagination that brings to life the bells and gargoyles of the cathedral. Despite his shyness and uncertainty, he quickly befriends Esmeralda. Big-hearted, and brave when need be. A very physical role. Actor must be comfortable with heights and will be expected to feign physical deformity and a speech impediment.
Claude Frollo (M) 40-60 Vocal range:E2 to Bb4
Archdeacon of Notre Dame Cathedral and the most powerful cleric in Paris, he is the reluctant caretaker of Quasimodo. He will do whatever it takes to rid the city of the gypsy "vermin," even as he lusts after Esmeralda. Calculating, manipulative, and obsessive. Actor must be comfortable with heights.
Esmeralda (F) 18-30 Vocal range: E3 to D5
A beautiful and free-spirited gypsy who possesses the strong sense of justice and morality that Frollo lacks. Compassionate, she frees Quasimodo from the frenzied mob at the Feast of Fools and, against her better judgment, falls for the cocky Phoebus. Dance heavy role. Actress must be comfortable with heights.
Captain Phoebus de Martin (M) 25-35 Vocal range: A2 to Ab4
Returning to Paris after serving in the war, Phoebus takes up his new position as Captain of the Cathedral Guard. Overconfident yet charming, this handsome, strong soldier makes the ladies swoon, yet his moral compass is also strong, and he openly defies the corrupted Frollo.
Clopin Trouillefou (M) 25-40 Vocal range: D3 to F#5
The clever and charismatic King of the Gypsies. An air of mystery surrounds Clopin, who often leaves the scene in a puff of smoke. As the master of ceremonies for the Feast of Fools, he is witty and playful, but he boasts a darker, serious nature when not performing for the crowd.
*Lieutenant Frederic Charlus (M) 20-30
Lieutenant of the Cathedral Guard and loyal friend to Phoebus
*Jehan Frollo (M) 20-30 Vocal range: F3 to Eb5
Claude's reckless younger brother. With the gypsy Florika, he fathers Quasimodo, who he leaves in his brother's care. Wild, passionate, and strong-willed.
*Florika (F) 20-30Vocal range: E4 to F#5 A gypsy and Quasimodo's mother.
*Father Dupin (M) 40-60 Vocal range: C3 to A3
A priest of Notre Dame and Claude and Jehan's guardian.
*King Louis XI (M) 40-50
King of France, nicknamed the Prudent.
*Saint Aphrodisius (M) 30-50 Vocal Range: B3 to E4
A statue of a saint that comes to life
*Madam (F) 30-50
Owner of a brothel and safe haven for gypsies.
*Official (M) 20 to 50 Vocal Range: G2 to E4
A judicial officer.
