There's magic to do when a prince learns the true meaning of glory, love and war in Stephen Schwartz's iconic and unforgettable musical masterpiece.

A ragtag troupe of performers fronted by the charismatic Leading Player takes the young prince Pippin on a musical journey of self-discovery. Heir to the Frankish throne, 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 in the simple joys of everyday life. 

Musical numbers include “Magic to Do,” “Corner of the Sky,” Morning Glow, “No Time at All,” and more.

"PIPPIN" is presented through special arrangemenet with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com
