MANISTEE & SURROUNDING COMMUNITIES – Order tickets now for this spectacular, four-time Grammy, three-time Oscar, Tony Award winning musical allegory. With an infectiously unforgettable score written by musical theater giant, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Children of Eden), Pippin has been successfully produced on stages ranging from High School to Broadway. Sweeping the New York Awards circuit (Tony, Drama Desk, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle) in 2013, Pippin continues to captivate and appeal to the young at heart throughout the world.
SHOW DESCRIPTION – 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 Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the un-extraordinary moments that happen every day.
