Follow the young prince Pippin’s search for the secret to true happiness and fulfillment in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh, and the intrigues of political power. But will these extraordinary things really make him happy? Find out soon in MacTheatre’s rendition of Stephen Schwartz’s masterpiece!
With an infectiously unforgettable score from four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theatre giant, Stephen Schwartz, Pippin is the story of one young man's journey to be extraordinary. Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. 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, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.
Recommended for ages 12 yrs and up.
