Pippin

2011 Young Artist Production

Book by Roger O. Hirson
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz

The young prince Pippin longs to discover the secret of true happiness and fulfillment in this hip, tongue-in-cheek, anachronistic fairy tale. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, he finds the happiness and fulfillment come about in the most unusual of ways. The energetic pop-influenced score is by three-time Oscar-winning composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz ("Wicked," "Godspell" and "Children of Eden") and bursts with one show stopping number after another.

Tickets are $17, $15 for students/seniors, $10 for children. Click here to purchase online.
