A Tony Award-winning Broadway hit, Pippin is the story of a prince’s quest to find personal significance. The son of King Charlemagne, leader of the Holy Roman Empire, Pippin traverses through the trials of war, love and politics before finding himself out amongst the peasants - away from the wealth and privilege of royal life. The Leading Player, who is blessed with the gift of magic, narrates the story.

 

Twenty-four PSC students are involved in the production, which is directed by English and Speech Instructor Joshua Young. For more information, contact Young at 402-872-2285 or jyoung@peru.edu.
