Join TheaterCNU as we journey with Pippin, the heir to the throne of King Charlemagne, as he searches for the meaning of life. On Pippin's expedition for his "Corner of the Sky," the devilishly charismatic Leading Player guides us through this brightly comedic and darkly sinister tale of glorious battles, questionable familial advice and temptations of the flesh. A colorful, Tony Award-winning musical, with an infectiously unforgettable score from four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theater giant, Stephen Schwartz, Pippin is the story of one young man's journey to be "Extraordinary."

Mature themes.

PIPPIN is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
