Director/Choreographer-Jack Dyville

Musical Accompaniment- Lawrence Wankel            Choral Direction -Renae Rike-Nehring

The director states "I have been intrigued with this show since i first saw it on Broadway in 1972....mainly because of the dynamic and unique staging by Bob Fosse."  The story is of a young man searching for happines just like any young person has since time began and just like any young person will do from here to eternity. 

This play is set in 1968 in which a traveling troupe of players is presenting the miraculous tale of Pippin which is set in the year 780 AD in the Not-So-Holy Roman Empire (or thereabouts).
