Pippin

Pippin
A prince learns the true meaning of glory, love and war in this iconic musical allegory.

With an infectiously unforgettable score from the four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theatre giant, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Children of Eden), Pippin has been successfully produced on stages ranging from High School to Broadway. Sweeping the New York Awards circuit (Tony, Drama Desk, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle) in 2013, 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.

Magic Trick for Pippin
This question has no answers
Hello All,Does anyone have any ideas of how to make the final fire scene happen in Pippin? Its suppose to be a fire box style magic trick, but Im wondering if anyone has been able to pull off this scene using something else. I have a nice size budget for the show but I would perfer not using the money renting or purchasing a high-end magic trick.d
