“Every band has its problems.”

But not quite like Fantage as their star begins its unparalleled ascent in the mid-80s music scene. While the band members become the latest pop rock pinups to grace the tabloids, they are faced with the challenges of their sudden notoriety. The trappings of fame soon start to outweigh the perks, especially for Nigel and Shelly Thompson whose marriage is put to the test by more than overzealous fans. With a megahit record and an international tour with a punk rock icon, Fantage is on the verge of exploding…if they don’t implode first.

THE LEGEND OF QUASIMODO, REVISITED - (2-Act Comedy for Kids of All Ages)

THE LEGEND OF QUASIMODO, REVISITED

(2-Act Comedy for Kids of All Ages)

"A warm-hearted family comedy." - Fraser Coast Chronical (4 July 2013)

Based on Victor Hugo's novel “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”

CAST: 4 m, 1 w, 5 flexible, plus extras

SET: bare stage, elevated platform for cathedral tower, bed, throne.

TIMING: 75-90 min. (with intermission)


As the title implies, this fast-paced, lighthearted adaptation takes a few liberties with the original text and focuses on one adventurous day in the life of fiction’s most unfortunate fellow. Here, Quasimodo is meant to be adored, not feared, while his villainous master Frollo sports a bad toupee. The handsome war hero Phoebus is easily outwitted (and charmed) by the feisty gypsy Esmeralda, and the city is patrolled by the 15th century’s version of the Keystone Kops. Nothing and no one is taken too seriously. But beneath the humor is a timeless moral core with lessons in cultural tolerance, triumph over adversity and the value of friendship. Emphasis is placed on dialogue and action rather than scenery and costumes, which should be kept simple and somewhat campy. Breaking the fourth wall is encouraged, even where it is not expressly denoted.
