The Hunchback of Notre Dame, is an excellent adaptation of the Victor Hugo novel, with songs from the Disney animated movie. This exciting classic story portrays the story of the gypsy girl, Esmeralda, the honorable soldier Phoebus, the Archdeacon Frollo, and the hunchback Quasimodo. This Broadway version illuminates the theme of discrimination against those groups of people who exhibit differences in culture or ability.

This year, The BMHS Theatre Program is excited to announce the fall musical as Gilbert and Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance.

Set sail with this classic comedy, a hopeful farce that follows young Frederic, an orphan who has mistakenly been apprenticed to an ineffectual but raucous band of pirates. He disavows the pirates’ way of life and falls for the beautiful Mabel. Frederic’s melodious tones win over the heart of Major-General Stanley’s songbird daughter, Mabel, but when the Pirate King discovers that General Stanley has lied about being an orphan to keep the pirates from stealing all of his belongings and carrying off his bevy of beautiful daughters, an “ingenious paradox” may prevent the budding romance and lead to the death of “The very model of a modern Major-General.”

Tickets: $10. To purchase tickets, click here.

This marvelously theatrical play is the story of a disturbed young man and his friendship with a disenchanted preacher in southern Indiana in the early 1930s. When the boy was young he almost drowned. This trauma, and the loss of his mother in the same accident, has left him deathly afraid of water. The preacher, set on breaking away from a long line of Kentucky family preachers, is determined not to do what he does best. He works as a mechanic for the boy’s father. The town doesn’t have a preacher and the women try to persuade him to preach – while he tries to persuade the child to wash. When the preacher finally gets the boy in the river and is washing him, the townspeople mistake the scene for a baptism. They descend on the event and, in the confusion, the boy drowns.
