Two additional sessions of auditions for the musical The Hunchback of Notre Dame have been scheduled by director Shelly McFadden. The first will be Sunday, March 28 at 3 p.m. and the second will be Monday, March 29 at 7 p.m. Both sessions will be in the Rehearsal Center at the Hazel Day Longden Theatre in Greencastle.
The show will be produced June 1-5 & June 8-12. It will open the planned 60th Season of Putnam County Playhouse. Details are still being worked out. The board is watching the COVID protocols carefully and decisions will be made with the safety of our participants and audiences in mind.
Among roles in the musical are Quasimodo, the title character; Esmerelda, the beautiful dancer he falls in love with; Frollo, the archdeacon of Notre Dame; and Phoebus, the captain of the Cathedral Guard. McFadden is also looking for a large ensemble – or congregation. Numerous supporting roles will be cast from the congregation. There are opportunities for many performers in singing and dancing roles.
