Careers in the Performing Arts Presents Cast and Crew Members of Pippin

Program Time - 1:00 to 2:00 p.m.

The 2013 Tony® Award-winner for BEST MUSICAL REVIVAL is back for the first time since it thrilled audiences 40 years ago. With a beloved score by Tony nominee Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Wicked), PIPPIN tells the story of a young prince on a death-defying journey to find meaning in his existence. Will he choose a happy but simple life? Or will he risk everything for a singular flash of glory. This captivating new production is directed by Tony winner Diane Paulus (Hair and The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess). PIPPIN features sizzling choreography in the style of Bob Fosse and breathtaking acrobatics by Les 7 Doigts De La Main, the creative force behind the nationwide sensation Traces.

Through a panel interview and Q&A session, participants will gain an understanding of the skills and competencies related to specific career fields in the performing arts directly from Broadway professionals. Teachers benefit from bringing professionals right into the classroom through the technology of distance learning! Our Teacher’s Guide connects the experience to the classroom curriculum.
