Queen Street Methodist Central Hall provides the setting for the musical based on the Disney film and Victor Hugo’s novel.
Featuring a cast of 16 actors, a 12-strong chorus of gargoyles and saints and an up-to-50-strong choir, it is one of the biggest amateur shows the town has seen in decades.
Directing proceedings is one of the theatre company’s founders and its artistic director, Alex Weatherhill.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame is the story of Quasimodo, the deformed, disfigured and deaf bell ringer at the Parisien Notre Dame cathedral, who falls in love with the beautiful gipsy Esmeralda.

The songs in the Disney score include A Guy Like You, Out There, Topsy Turvy and Someday.The Hunchback of Notre Dame is special to Scarborough because of its connection to one of its most famous sons, Charles Laughton, who was born at what is now the Old Vic pub/hotel.
One of Hollywood’s finest actors and brightest stars, Oscar-winner Laughton played Quasimodo to great acclaim in the 1939 film version of the novel.
In Scarborough Theatre Company’s production of the show, Kian Moore, a B-Tec drama student, steps into the role. He will be familiar to fans of YMCA shows including Joseph and His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame is on at the QueenStreet Methodist Central Hall frm Wednesday Nay 18 until Saturday May 21, daily at 7.30pm.
