Pippin is the musical story of a young prince, and his journey to be extraordinary. Pippin is the heir to the Frankish throne, and this story is his search for the secret to true happiness and fulfillment.
He looks for true happiness and fulfillment in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and after he disposes of his father, King Charlemagne the Great, the intrigues of political power.
What he discovers is that neither true happiness nor fulfillment can be found in extraordinary endeavors. Instead, he finds them in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.
The score for this wonderful musical was created by Stephen Schwartz, a four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner, and musical theatre giant. The music is infectiously unforgettable. The story was written by Roger O. Hirson, and released in book form. The show was directed and choreographed by Devin LePage, with musical Direction by David Williams.
Pippin opens Friday July 22nd at the Sutter Street Theatre on Sutter Street in Folsom. The show runs for one month, until closing night on August 21st.
