HOPEWELL VALLEY: School theater to present ‘Pippin’  

HOPEWELL VALLEY: hv pippin 212 -- poster

Hopewell Valley Central High School theater want you to “join us.”
The school’s production of “Pippin,” to be performed on two weekends starting Feb. 26, features a colorful troupe of performers, led by the charismatic Leading Player, and featuring music by Stephen Schwartz, the composer who later penned the Broadway hit “Wicked.”
The ensemble cast tells the story of Pippin, a young prince who longs to find passion and adventure. To prove his loyalty to his father, King Charles, Pippin goes to war. When the Leading Player convinces the prince to fight tyranny, Pippin kills Charles and takes the throne.
Realizing his mistake, Pippin begs the Leading Player to bring his father back to life, and she obliges. The prince falls in love with Catherine, a widow with a young son, and (much to the Leading Player’s chagrin), Pippin struggles to decide whether he should settle down and pursue a peaceful life or continue to make magic with the troupe of performers.
Pippin’s journey is universal to people at any stage of life. The character of Pippin is an Everyman, and at some point we all have experienced the same longing to find our “Corner of the Sky,” or the thing that brings us fulfillment and happiness.
The show dates are Feb. 26-27 and March 4-5 at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center at the school at 259 Pennington-Titusville Road. Get tickets online at www.showtix4u.com at $12 for adults and $8 for students and seniors, or at the door.
Note: Due to adult subject matter, this show is recommended for a mature audience. 
