This semester, the Furman Theatre Department is putting on a production of Pippin by Stephen Schwartz and Roger O. Hirson. Pippin is the first-born son of Charlemagne, the king of the Holy Roman Empire. The show begins when Pippin returns from school and begins his journey to find his “Corner of the Sky”. Pippin’s story will end with a climax that you will never forget! 

The theatre department is taking a modern twist on the 1972 musical. Director, Maegan McNerney Azur, has decided to introduce Pippin to the world of social media, with all of its magic and glamour. In addition to one leading player, six additional narrators have been added and together they make up the seven deadly sins. These sins will be using the world of social media to guide Pippin through his journey of magic and merriment. 

Pippin has something for every kind of audience member; there is magic, romance, holy war, and so much more. The show has an extraordinary cast that is sure to make you laugh, cry, smile, and gasp. 

The show will be running for two weekends in Furman’s own playhouse. The dates are October 16 & 17, 23 & 24 at 7:30 PM, October 18 & 19, 25 & 26 at 8:00 PM, and October 20 & 27 at 3:00 PM. Tickets are $20 for general admission, $18 for seniors, and $12 for students. There are also students rush for $7, where students are able to come before the show and if there are available seats they can purchase those seats at a discount. It also counts as a CLP credit for Furman students. 

Come out and support the Furman Theatre Department and their production of Pippin! It will be a show you will remember for the rest of your life!
