Westfield High School Theatre Department Proudly Presents PIPPIN

February 24, 2012 at 10:23 AM

"We've Got Magic to do, Just for You" at Westfield High School, March 8, 9 and 10th.  The students of WHS are working to bring Pippin to life on the Westfield High School Stage.  Pippin was originally produced in 1972 with a score written by Stephen Schwartz and book by Roger O. Hirson.  The musical, with memorable music and dance, was originally directed by Bob Fosse.  WHS teacher and Director, Daniel Devlin will once again direct the talented students of WHS in this production. 

In 2011 Westfield High School was honored with the Best Musical Production award from the Paper Mill Rising Star Award competition.  Several members from that award winning production will be returning this year in this production of Pippin, including Matt Lynn who will play the role of Pippin.  Surrounded by a talented and large ensemble of singers and dancers, Pippin will transport the audience through a coming of age tale.  The story revolves around a young man finding his way and at times rebelling against the establishment, and war, as well as his father, Charlemagne, played by Geoffrey Ko.  The tale is woven through song and dance guided by Leading Player.  On Broadway, the role of Leading Player was memorably brought to life by Ben Vereen.  For this production Leading Player will be performed by Taylor Jackson.  The score includes recognizable songs, such as: “Magic to Do,” “Corner of the Sky,” and “I Guess I'll Miss the Man.”  Annie Oldakowski will play the role of Catherine, with Fastrada played by Maggie Tanji.  The cast is completed with the roles of Bertha- Rebecca Skowron, Lewis - Will Cary and Theo – Connor Wynne.  The Fosse Choreography will be performed by WHS dancers under the direction of Choreographer Samantha Hahn.  Once again the sets will be designed and executed by WHS's own Paper Mill 2011 Winner of best set design, Roy Chambers. 

Tell your friends, invite everyone you know to come and see Pippin at Westfield High School, located at 550 Dorian Road.  Performances will take place on March 8, 9 and 10 at 7:30pm.  Tickets are $12 each and available by email at or by calling 908-233-0563.

Ever since bridge repair closed a major thoroughfare near my house, the traffic on my sleepy street has increased dramatically.  And it is not by accident that commuters have figured out ...
