King Louis XI is a wise and old king and Frollo is the Chief Justice. Frollo gazes on the gypsy girl, Esmeralda, in the church during Fool’s Day and sends Quasimodo to catch her. Quasimodo, with the girl, is captured by Phoebus, Captain of the Guards, who frees the girl. The courts sentence Quasimodo to be flogged, and the only one who will give him water while he is tied in the square is Esmeralda. Later, at a party of nobles, Esmeralda again meets both Frollo, who is bewitched by her, and Phoebus. When Phoebus is stabbed to death, Esmeralda is accused of the murder, convicted by the court and sentenced to hang. Clopin, King of the Beggars; Gringoire, Esmeralda’s husband; and Quasimodo, the bell ringer, all try different ways to save her from the gallows. Written by Tony Fontana

A show business veteran since the early 70’s, headliner Bill Hildebrandt has appeared on Dick Clark’s Bloopers and Practical Jokes and in radio and TV commercials. He combines a petal-to-the-metal comedy style with a stream-lined delivery that takes the audience into his own separate reality. Bill worked in Las Vegas  at the Riviera Hotel and Casino until its closing in 2015 after 60 years as a Vegas staple comedy club.  He has the diversity required to appeal to a wide range of audiences. He’s shared the stage with many of today’s top acts, including Judy Tenuta, Rita Rudner and Rosie O’Donnell. In addition, Bill has opened for Huey Lewis and the News at the DTE Energy Music Theater in Michigan, and for the Doobie Brothers.. He has been listed as one of the “Funniest People in Detroit” by the Detroit Free Press.
