LTCC to present Pippin musical
Special to the Tribune
Lake Tahoe Community College (LTCC) Theatre Arts Department presents the smash-hit musical Pippin this June. With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, the composer of the Broadway musicals Wicked and Godspell, and book by Roger O. Hirson, the Tony Award-winning show takes over the LTCC Duke Theatre stage from June 12 through June 20.
This high-energy, award-winning musical follows the story of Pippin, a young prince who longs to find passion and adventure in his quest to live an extraordinary life. Pippin is encouraged by the seductive, yet sinister Leading Player and a mysterious troupe of performers who lure the naïve prince along a death-defying journey to the final “One Perfect Act.”
Full of soaring songs from one of Broadway’s most cherished composers, this unforgettable show was the winner of four Tony Awards in 1973 for the original production, and four Tony Awards in 2013 for the Broadway revival, including Best Musical Revival. Variety called the show “Pure theatrical bliss!”
With choreography and aerial work by Angela Smith, music direction by Mark D. Williams, stage direction by Susan Boulanger, and a talented cast of performers, this production features thrilling dance and aerial work, fun and engaging performances, and some surprise magical moments.
Performances take place June 12 and 13 at 8 p.m., and June 18, 19, and 20 at 8 p.m. There will be a Sunday matinee on June 14 and a Saturday matinee on June 20. Both matinees are at 2 p.m. The closing performance is Saturday, June 20.
