Conejo Players Theatre presents “PIPPIN” November 8 to December 1 at the Conejo Players Theatre, 351 S. Moorpark Road, Thousand Oaks.
With an unforgettable score from four-time Grammy® winner, three-time Oscar® winner, and musical theatre giant Stephen Schwartz, PIPPIN is the story of one young man's complicated, illusory journey to be extraordinary.
A recent college graduate with an unsettled future ahead, Pippin is desperately searching for the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. Our production is set in the post-apocalyptic circus of Pippin's frightened and confused subconscious mind, where the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh, and the intrigues of political power might offer answers … or do they? Guided by the sinister Leading Player and his band of misfit fellow players, Pippin is portrayed as a Prince in the Holy Roman Empire, striving to prove that he is exceptional. In the end, however, he finds that happiness – or, perhaps, contentment – lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day. ~ RATED PG-13 (for sexual situations)
