Kanelane HS

The Kaneland High School Theatre department is proud to present their 2020 spring musical: The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Based on Victor Hugo’s 1831 novel, this classic love story is set in medieval Paris and contains all the elements of intrigue: a beautiful girl, an unlikely hero, and a cruel villain. Their tragic story of love and loss plays out against a backdrop of revolution and social unrest.  Come and experience the story that has captivated audiences for years.

When asked recently about her take on the show, Junior Johnna Rohlman who plays Esmeralda said, “This version of Hunchback takes the best parts of the book and movie and combines it to tell a sad yet honest story on stage. The show is darker than most Disney shows but also has moments of joy and happiness which makes the show so dynamic and interesting.”

Performances take place on April 17th  and 18th at 7:00 pm and April 19th at 2pm. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for seniors and children, and KHS students with their school ID get in for free.Tickets can be purchased at the door or at https://app.arts-people.com/index.php?ticketing=khstd Kaneland High School is located at 47W326 Keslinger Road in Maple Park.
