Don't Miss This Colorful Coming-of-Age Musical!
PIPPIN presented by Boulder High School March 7-9 & March 14-16.
Online PR News – 23-February-2013 –The hit musical Pippin with its feast of dance and seventies music, will be presented by the Boulder High School Theater Department March 7th-9th and 14th-16th. With a music and lyrical score written by Stephen Schwartz, the well-known composer of Wicked and Godspell, Bob Fosse's original production created a sensation in 1972 for its clever staging, complex choreography and witty songs including “Corner of the Sky,” and “Magic To Do.” This extraordinary coming-of-age musical won a number of Tony awards and ran on Broadway for five years. Boulder High’s Theater Department is excited to have Shelly Cox-Robie, a 30-year veteran actor of The Boulder Dinner Theater, directing Pippin.
Pippin is a play-within-a-play, and BHS has designed a turn-of-the-century traveling circus atmosphere: its 'Leading Player' directs the action for Pippin's benefit as an onstage director. The story is loosely based on the historical quest of Pippin son of Charlemagne, told in a comic, sexy and light-hearted style relevant to today’s young audience. As he searches for meaning to his life, Pippin reflects on the horrors of war, the greed of politicians and the temptations of the flesh. Though dealing with mature themes, Boulder High School Theater has created a tasteful and appealing show that should be appropriate for all audiences.
Make sure to catch Pippin, March 7th-9th and 14th-16th at Boulder High School Auditorium, 1604 Arapahoe Ave. Curtain at 7 pm.
