A story of hope, compassion and acceptance:

Treat your audiences to an inspirational family experience as they encounter the astounding world of 15th century France. Inspired by Victor Hugo’s 1831 classic novel, this is one of LifeHouse’s most powerful theater plays.

Amid the outlandish excitement of the Festival of Fools and the sacredness of the cathedral of Notre Dame lies the painful lives of those considered outcasts. Twelve original songs including the lighthearted “I Love Paree,” and the moving, “Why Must I Be So Different?” help to set the mood in this hopeful story of caring, compassion and acceptance.
