Theatrical Singers with Acting and Dancing Skills required for professional original Musical Stage Production.

The Show is called Samuel Kristy's -"The Hunchback of Notre Dame -The Musical (The Untold Story)"....[Music, Lyrics and Script by Samuel Kristy].

This is the World Premiere of this movingly powerful and captivating Musical. This is the three-dimensional -untold story of Victor Hugo’s Classic -dramatic romantic thriller.. Set in Paris 1482, this superb re-imagination of Victor Hugo's Classic Novel catapults the audience into a haunting, superstitious world, an abyss of unrequited love.

The Songs have been described by my peers as an awesome sumptuous musical feast - blending the best elements of rock, pop, world, swing, jazz and broadway. (Note some of the songs appear on my You Tube Channel ...type into the YouTube search engine the name ..."Samuel Kristy Hunchback"...Also, you can view some of the material on the Facebook Page under the name ..."Samuel Kristy".
