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 happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavours, but rather the un-extraordinary moments that happen every day.
With an infectiously unforgettable score from the four-time Grammy-winner, three-time Oscar-winner, and musical theatre giant Stephen Schwartz, Pippin has been produced to great success on stages ranging from High School to Broadway. Equally as poignant as a black-box production as it is with splashy, spectacle driven extravaganza, Pippin's message is universal and will connect with audiences across the age spectrum.
