With just three sold-out performances left before South Bay Musical Theatre's production of The Hunchback of Notre Dame closes, it is abundantly clear that this show is a winner. Audiences raved about the show itself, the music, the orchestra, the choir, the cast, the costumes, the choreography, the set, and more! In fact, in emails received by SBMT (feedback@southbaymt.com), even the props got "props!" Thanks to all who attended—many of you multiple times—and for the enthusiastic response. Every performance has ended with the audience leaping to its feet for a standing ovation. STANDING OVATION AT THE SARATOGA CIVIC THEATER With kudos [...]

Kudos to the many, many hands behind the ‘Hunchback of Notre Dame’ magic

By | 2018-07-27T07:39:36+00:00 May 22nd, 2018|Behind The Scenes, Photos, Video Link|

Musical theatre offers a tremendous range of entertainment options. Some shows are simple—with a unit set, a small cast, and perhaps a single keyboard accompanist. Others—like SBMT's current production of The Hunchback of Notre Dame—pull out all the stops to create an unforgettable spectacle. When you're working with a team of volunteers, that's a remarkable accomplishment, and now that the show has opened, we wanted to give a well-deserved shout-out to the huge team behind the scenes so you can more fully appreciate what goes into a production this rich. Such a massive production requires many hands to execute, and I [...]

A truly special show with a ‘deep bench’

By | 2018-07-27T07:44:35+00:00 May 8th, 2018|Behind The Scenes|

By Sasha Motalygo When a sports team (like the Golden State Warriors, for example) has star-level talent who are not in the starting lineup but still contribute mightily to the team’s success, they are said to enjoy a “deep bench.” That’s certainly the case for South Bay Musical Theatre’s upcoming production, THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME, which is blessed with a “deep bench” of extremely talented singers who have happily accepted chorus and ensemble roles. (Most of those in the choir are pictured above.) I interviewed several of them recently to find out why. It is widely known that South Bay [...]

Tale of an underdog: behind the scenes with The Hunchback of Notre Dame

By | 2018-07-27T07:44:58+00:00 April 28th, 2018|Behind The Scenes, Video Link|

The Phantom of the Opera. Beauty and the Beast. Wicked. Hairspray. The Hunchback of Notre Dame. What do all these musicals have in common? Three are set in France. Three are adaptations from movies. Two have been staged in the past by South Bay Musical Theatre. Three were written by Alan Menken, Stephen Schwartz or both. All but one earned Tony Awards for best costuming. But the main thing all these critically acclaimed musicals have in common is their central theme of acceptance—as we discover inner beauty in a leading character whose external appearance causes fear, disgust, or ridicule. The phantom, the beast, [...]
