Coastal Carolina University Theatre Presents Pippin


Pippin: Book by Roger O. Hirson and Music & Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz

Coastal Carolina University Theatre presents Tony Award-winning Pippin, starting Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. at Wheelwright Auditorium. Directed and choreographed by Barbara Hartwig, Pippin is the coming of age story of a young prince longing to discover the secret of true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, he finds the simple pleasures of home and family. Featuring music from the Tony and Oscar-winning composer of Wicked and Godspell, Pocahontas, The Hunchback Of Notre Dame and The Prince Of Egypt, the energetic pop-influenced score bursts with one show stopping number after another.

Pippin performances are January 31, 2013 at 7:30 p.m., February 1-2, 2013 & 6-9, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. and February 9, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. For ticket information, please visit the CCU Theatre online here or call the Wheelwright Box Office at (843) 349-2502.

The mission of the Department of Theatre at Coastal Carolina University is to prepare students to pursue lives as engaged professional theatre artists or to seek further advanced study in graduate programs by providing rigorous training in musical theatre. Students enrolled in theatre are expected to develop the knowledge, skills, concepts, and sensitivities essential to the life of the theatre professional. In any of many possible roles, the theatre professional must exhibit not only technical competence, but also broad knowledge of theatre, sensitivity to artistic style, and an insight into the role of theatre in the life of humankind.
