Director's Note: "Love works in miracles every day: such as weakening the strong, and stretching the weak; making fools of the wise, and wise men of fools; favouring the passions, destroying reason, and in a word, turning everything topsy-turvy." -Margaret of Valois, 1553 My director's wish for my cast and you is that we will look for the everyday miracles in our lives, we will open our hearts to love, and we will all enjoy this beautiful … [Read more...] about The Hunchback of Notre Dame
