Hunchback of Notre Dame @ The Holly

A powerful new play is coming to The Holly in downtown Dahlonega. Hunchback of Notre Dame will dig deep to explore "What Makes the Monster and What Makes the Man". This play contains a deep, philosophical message, but still audiences will enjoy a richly entertaining performance with a huge cast. "Hunchback" is setting a new standard for The Holly -- set design and technical aspects of the production are at higher levels than ever before. And the voices, raining down from the rafters will astonish you. We had a chance to interview technical director and production manager Patrick Rose for this blog. Patrick Rose2
