PIPPIN is coming to JCHS!
With a beloved score by Tony nominee STEPHEN SCHWARTZ (WICKED), PIPPIN tells the story of a young prince on a death-defying journey to find meaning in his existence. Will he choose a happy but simple life? Or will he risk everything for a singular flash of glory?
A young prince finishes his education and begins his journey to discover how he will make his mark on the world. What is the secret of true happiness and fulfillment? Will he find it in the glories of the battlefield, in the arms of lovely ladies, in pursuing political power, or in the simple pleasures of country living?
PIPPIN is a hip, tongue-in-cheek, anachronistic fairy tale that captivated Broadway audiences and continues to appeal to the young at heart everywhere. The energetic pop-influenced score by three-time Oscar-winning composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz (GODSPELL, CHILDREN OF EDEN, and the animated films Pocahontas, The Hunchback Of Notre Dame and The Prince Of Egypt) bursts with one show stopping number after another, from soaring ballads to infectious dance numbers.
The original Broadway production was directed & choreographed by Bob Fosse who envisioned the show as a splashy, dance-driven spectacle, which included some of the most brilliant staging in Broadway history. The current Broadway revival was the winner of the 2013 Tony Award for BEST MUSICAL REVIVAL, as well as Best Leading Actress, Best Featured Actress and Best Director.
