Archdeacon of Notre Dame Cathedral, Frollo is pious and holier than thou. A strong and imposing presence, he is the reluctant caretaker of Quasimodo.
Age: 40 to 50
Vocal range top: F4
Vocal range bottom: G2
The deformed bell-ringer of Notre Dame. Ringing the bells daily has left him partially deaf, but very strong. Lonely but big-hearted, Quasimodo dreams of connecting with the community he observes around him. Quasimodo has a halting speech when speaking to other real characters, but his inner monologue and songs are free from this impediment. Must be an excellent singer and actor. This actor will be physically representing Quasimodo’s deformity, much like in "An Elephant Man," therefore, must be dexterous. Director is considering the use of American Sign Language in correlation to the character's lines and songs.
Age: 20 to 35
Vocal range top: Bb4
Vocal range bottom: Bb2
The clever and charismatic King (or Queen) of the Gypsies. Able to effectively hold the attention of a crowd, an excellent master of ceremonies. An air of mystery surrounds Clopin, who boasts a dark, serious nature when not performing for the crowd.
Age: 20 to 40
Vocal range top: Bb4
Vocal range bottom: D3
CAPTAIN PHOEBUS DE MARTIN
Newly appointed Captain of the Cathedral Guard, he is dashing and charismatic. Phoebus is fun-loving and overconfident, yet charming. He is conflicted when given orders that defy with his strong moral compass. He doesn’t possess the prejudice of Frollo nor his other

2 ensembles, a featured
acting ensemble and a choral ensemble:
A group of strong and dynamic musical theatre performers who all function as Narrators and play multiple featured roles.
These actors will play 40+ roles including: Jehan Frollo, Florika, Father Dupin, King Louis XI, Tribunal, Madam, St. Aphrodisius, Gypsies, gargoyles, soldiers, and citizens of Paris.
All Ensemble members are expected to be comfortable with some movement, with some skilled dancers. Expected to work with the directing team to create dynamic characters. Any acrobatic skills are a plus and you are asked to note those on your audition form. Also, Gargoyles will be expected to puppet their Gargoyle.
Age: 16 to 99
a talented group of singers, the choir will be a separate ensemble from the “congregation”. This choral ensemble will be on stage throughout the show and provide accompanying vocals. The choir will be not be responsible for learning choreography, or staging and will be able to hold music, therefore, the time commitment for the choir is less significant.
