RANDOLPH, NJ- The Randolph High School Drama Club is proud to present Pippin on Friday, March 20, at 7 pm and Saturday, March 21, at 1 pm and 8 pm in the high school auditorium. The Saturday matinée will be followed by a character meet and greet for children.

As told by a traveling troupe of circus performers led by the cunning, charming, and bewitching "ringleader," or Leading Player, Pippin is the timeless story of a young prince, heir to the throne, who is searching for his own identity, or “corner of the sky.”  Pippin returns from university certain that he will find a fulfilling purpose in life. As encouraged by the dazzling Leading Player, Pippin dabbles in bloody battles, romantic entanglements, and saavy political maneuvers, only to discover that true happiness is more complicated than he thought.  With infectious tunes by Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Wicked) and iconic choreography from Bob Fosse (Chicago, Sweet Charity, Damn Yankees), Pippin is entertainment for the entire family: for the young, a circus confection; a humorous metaphor about growing up for teens; and, for the wise, a dark tale about the danger of false appearances and empty promises.
