La Jolla Playhouse announces that the San Diego choral group SACRA / PROFANA will be featured in the upcoming U.S. premiere of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, written by Alan Menken and lyricist Stephen Schwartz, featuring a book by Peter Parnell and directed by Scott Schwartz. A co-production with Paper Mill Playhouse, the musical will run Oct. 28 – Dec. 7 in La Jolla. Tickets are available only through a subscription purchase by calling (858) 550-1010 or online at

“In this production of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, the score will be the central focus and the essential means of the storytelling. A community of voices comes together to re-enact the story of Quasimodo, and as they sing, they summon the world of medieval Paris and Victor Hugo's rich characters,” said director Scott Schwartz.
