Join the Choir for the Arts Express Production - The Hunchback of Notre Dame
The score is phenomenal, with music by composer Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Newsies, Little Mermaid) and lyricist Stephen Schwartz (Wicked). The production includes bold and dramatic theatrics, combined with the musical power of a full choir and orchestra that accompanies the cast. Here is a link to one of the amazing choral pieces: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aS5bZVg1rnw. In addition to our very talented production team (including Korby Myrick, Director/Choir Director; Enrique “Hank” Feldman, Music Director and Simone Jolivet-Manuel, Assistant Director/Choreographer), cast and choir members will be working with exceptional Tucson artists as professional mentors including Kit Runge and Dennis Tamblyn.
