GMHS Presents PIPPIN
General McLane High School will presents PIPPIN on May 16, 17, 18 at 7:30pm at the High School Auditorium. PIPPIN is the story of a young prince who longed to discover the secret of true happiness and fulfillment. He sought it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the society and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, he found it in the simple pleasures of home and family.
PIPPIN is a hip, tongue-in-cheek, anachronistic fairy tale that captivated Broadway audiences and continues to appeal to the young at heart everywhere. PIPPIN is currently in revival on Broadway and has received rave reviews earning eleven Tony award nominations. The energetic pop-influenced score by three-time Oscar®-winning composer/lyricist Steven Swartz (GODSPELL, CHILDREN OF EDEN, and Broadway’s most successful show in recent years WICKED) bursts with one showstopping number after another, from soaring ballads to infectious dance numbers.
The cast includes twenty-four of General McLane’s finest talent. Tickets will be available at the door or can be purchased in advance at the High School office. We invite you to come see why “Some Lives are Meant to Be Extraordinary”!
