“Pippin” – Auditions in February for Encore Theatre in Tulare

With an infectiously unforgettable score from the four-time Grammy-winner, and musical theatre giant Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Children of Eden), Pippin has been successfully produced on stages ranging from high school to Broadway. Sweeping the New York Awards circuit (TONY, Drama Desk, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle) in 2013, Pippin continues to captivate and appeal to the young at heart throughout the world. The ensemble cast tells the story of Pippin, a young prince who longs to find passion and adventure in his life. The ensemble shows him many ways to find purpose in life and in the end he finally finds it in the least likely of places.
