(FORT LEE, NJ) -- Park Players Productions, Inc. will present Pippin across two weekends (April 21-23 and April 28-30). Pippin is a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by Roger O. Hirson. Bob Fosse, who directed the original Broadway production, also contributed to the libretto. The musical uses the premise of a mysterious performance troupe, led by the Leading Player, to tell the story of Pippin, a young prince on his search for meaning and significance.
With an infectiously unforgettable score from four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theatre giant, Stephen Schwartz, Pippin is the story of one young man's journey to be extraordinary. Winner of four 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival, this updated circus-inspired version of Pippin continues to captivate and appeal to the young at heart throughout the world.
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, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.
Equally poignant as a black box production or as a splashy, spectacle-driven extravaganza, Pippin's message is universal and will connect with audiences across the age spectrum.
Performances take place April 21,22,28,29 @ 8:00pm & April 23,30 @ 5:00pm in The Church of the Good Shepherd (1576 Palisade Avenue) in Fort Lee, New Jersey. Tickets are available for purchase online or by calling 201- 941-6030.
Pippin is presented through special permission of Musical Theatre International and all authorized performance materials are also provided by MTI.
The mission of Park Players Productions, Inc. is to "establish live, quality, theatrical productions at an affordable cost, providing the community with an all- around educational background in all genres of theatre." They were the 2014 Perry Awarded Community Theatre of the Year.
