SPC Theater is excited to announce its high school/college summer musical – PIPPIN.
Written by Stephen Schwartz and Roger O. Hirson, this musical follows the journey of Charlemagne’s son, Pippin, in his quest for the extraordinary life he believes he deserves (don’t we all?). Along the way a troupe of players help him find out what works and what doesn’t– leading to the players big “finale” for Pippin.
Originally produced on Broadway in 1972 and later successfully revived in 2013, PIPPIN has been wowing audiences for decades. Previously set in a traveling theater troupe (and in 2013 at a circus), SPC’s production will be slightly different. The musical will be set in a run-down museum exhibit about Charlemagne and his life with the exhibit coming to life to tell the story of Pippin.
This musical is open to all high school and college students in the area for both acting and technical theater positions.
After successful runs of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF and URINETOWN (a Top 10 production in the Tampa Bay area), SPC is looking forward to producing another successful summer musical.
