Brisbane French Theatre – Notre Dame

It is dusk at Notre Dame. Desperate Gargoyles lament and dream of escaping to a new life when the cathedral suddenly catches fire! As the evil & scheming Monseigneur Frollo embarks on a quest to find and punish the arsonist, an assortment of colourful characters (among them clumsy Quasimodo and strong-willed Esmeralda) will take the stage and join the investigation.

"Notre-Dame", an original musical performed in French and surtitled in English, will have you laugh, clap, sing and dance!

Brisbane French Theatre is a dynamic local theatre company bringing smashing, original French and bilingual plays to the Brisbane stage.

Brisbane French Theatre was created in 2017 with the goal of offering Australian audiences an entertaining and accessible immersion into French culture, and also to give native French speakers a chance to enjoy a great time at the theatre in their language. We also offer acting workshops.

Recent sell-out productions included "The Student and Mr Henri" (L’etudiante et Monsieur Henri), "Simone Says" (Et pendant ce temps, Simone Veille), "Alas April" (Helas avril) and "Repeat After Me".

THE
FRENCH
MARKET

Let’s face it, no look is really complete without the right finishes. Not to the best of standards, anyway (just tellin’ it like it is, babe). Upgrading your shoe game.
