Although it was written in 1972 and is set in the Middle Ages, Pippin speaks directly to young people today. This musical features the toe-tapping songs of Stephen Schwartz (who also wrote the music and lyrics for Godspell and Wicked). Pippin tells the fictionalized story of Charlemagne’s son who feels his life will have meaning only if he becomes famous. He tries a variety of ways to gain fame--warfare, partying, politics, art, and journalism—but none of these are successful. Along the way he falls in love with a widow and her young son, but he decides an ordinary life with them is not enough. Just as his desire for fame leads him to the brink of self-destruction, he realizes that it’s more important to lead a life filled with human connection than one of fame. Pippin is one of the most visually theatrical musicals featuring lively song and dance numbers led by the colorful Leading Players who repeatedly tempt Pippin to choose celebrity over authenticity.
The show features Zach Boyle as Pippin and AJ Bowen, Alexa Glass, Lucas Gleitz, Evan Sims, and Logan Wright as Leading Players. Other major roles are performed by Kevin Haas and Field Oldham (alternating the role of King Charles), Mason Doyle/Collin Kemper (Lewis), Emma Bartley/Emily Hilbrecht (Fastrada), Payton Sims (Berthe), and Elise Coughlan (Catherine).
