Some of the North Grenville Concert Choir practicing as the Notre Dame Cathedral Choir for Kemptville Youth Musical Theatre’s upcoming production of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”. Photo supplied.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame is coming to Kemptville in April and WOW what an amazing show this will be! The cast of youth from Kemptville Youth Musical Theatre Company have been practicing since last fall and are going to be outstanding! To top it off, the musical director for the show, Kemptville’s very talented Phillip Konopka, is bringing the North Grenville Concert Choir into this production. The musical will be staged at the Urbandale Arts Theatre, at the North Grenville Municipal Centre in Kemptville.

Phillip is very excited about this collaboration between NGCC (of which he is the director) and KYMTC (of which he is Musical Director). “This production will be magical, as the choir of NGCC will wonderfully complement the choral parts with the cast of KYMTC. While the talented KYMTC cast performs this amazing show, the NGCC choir will add this ethereal presence of the inner voice of Notre Dame Cathedral.”

The music and lyrics of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” were written by Alan Menken (Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and Christmas Carol) and Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Wicked, and Pippin). This music is Phillip’s favourite from all the Disney soundtracks and we are sure you will all fall in love with famous tunes like “Out There”, “In a Place of Miracles” and more!

Tickets are $16 online and $15 from a cast member, at the door, or at Scotiabank, Kemptville. Shows are April 14 at 7:30 pm, and April 15 at 2 pm; April 20 and 21 at 7:30 pm; April 22 at 2 pm; April 27 and 28 at 7:30 pm; and April 29 at 2 pm. For information please go to and
