Syracuse Summer Theatre at the Oncenter follows on the success of their two previous summer offerings, Cabaret and Spring Awakening, by presenting Stephen Schwartzs musical Pippin July 20 to August 5 at the Bevard Studio, John H. Murloy Civic Center. Pippin follows the coming of age experiences of Prince Pippin, son of King Charlemagne. Presented by a troupe of traveling players led by the enigmatic and alluring Leading Player, Pippin navigates war, sex, politics, and love. Stephen Schwartzs memorable score includes Corner of the Sky, Morning Glow, and Magic to Do. Originally premiering on Broadway in 1972, Pippin received a Tony award winning Broadway revival in 2013. Liam Collins will play the role of Pippin, with Joshua Kimball as the Leading Player. Stage direction is by Garrett Heater, music direction by Dan Williams, and choreography by Jodi Bova Mele.
