Urdang Academy Presents Pippin
6 & 7 March
A soul-searching tale from the Frankish dynasty
Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfilment.
He seeks it in 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, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavours, but rather in the extraordinary moments that happen every day.
As part of their course, third-year graduates of Urdang Academy perform in a full-length musical. These shows are produced for performance experience and assessment, and for the students to prepare for leaving the Academy.
