We’ve got Magic to do….You’ve got magic to see!
With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, and book by Roger O. Hirson, Pippin tells the story of a young man’s quest to find complete fulfillment and become extraordinary. Through a very theatrical lens, the Leading Player and her troupe of highly skilled actors, take us back in time to 780 AD, the time of the great and ruthless ruler, King Charlemagne…who is also Pippin’s father. The actor’s storytelling includes magic, lust, merriment, war, and farm animals! The West Linn High School Performing Arts Department pull all the tricks out of the theatrical and musical bag for this production. With illusions, puppets, catchy music, and colorful costumes, audiences will have an extraordinary night! The production runs November 2, 4, 9, 10, and 11. Curtain is 7pm and tickets can be purchased on the tickets tab above.
