The Lindsey Wilson College Theatre Program presents the award-winning musical Pippin Nov. 20-22 and Nov. 24 in V.P. Henry Auditorium. The play is directed by Lindsey Wilson College Assistant Professor of Theatre Robert Brock.
Pippin is the story of a young man, Pippin, and his father, Charlemagne — both real-life figures from the Middle Ages. But that's where the story's similarity to history ends. The musical, which was written by Stephen Schwartz, who also wrote Godspell and Wicked, is about Pippin's search for meaning in a seemingly dispirited world.
The play, which opened on Broadway in 1973 and was revived earlier this year, has won four Tony Awards.
Pippin will be performed at 7 p.m. CT Nov. 20-22 and 2 p.m. CT Nov. 24 in V.P. Henry Auditorium, 210 Lindsey Wilson Street, Columbia, Ky.
