This musical is performed by a mysterious Band of Players, led by the Leading Player, to act out the story of Pippin, a young prince on his search for his purpose in life. Pippin and his father King Charlemagne are characters based on historical figures of the early Middle Ages, although the plot is hilariously skewed from their real lives. En-
joy Pippin’s misadventures as he navigates his journey towards meaning in this comedy filled with surprises and life lessons.

VAHS students in the production include: Derek Argall as Pippin, Kate Veak as Leading Player, Asiah Doyle as Charlemagne, Daphne Buan as Catherine, Maddie Vilker as Fastrada, Elyse Mancilla as Berthe, Caulden Parkel as Lewis, and Zaria Roller as Thea. Many more dedicated students make up the Band of Players, the crew, and pit orchestra who all work to bring the story to life.

The production is directed by Steve Nibbe, with Heather Thorpe as vocal director and Eric Anderson as orchestra director. Choreography is done by Verona Theater Alum Sara Bartlett. VAHS seniors Raina Voss and Maggie Kempfer will be stage managers for this show.

Pippin is full of hilarious as well as meaningful moments with many twists and turns that you won’t want to miss!

Pippin, written by Stephen Schwartz, premiered on Broadway in 1972, has won several Tony awards, and has been performed around the world. Schwartz also composed the popular musicals Godspell (1971) and Wicked (2003).
