Boston Children's Theatre
Has Magic To Do
With "Pippin"

Six Performances Only
July 18 - July 21

Boston Children's Theatre will present "Pippin" -- the magical musical that recently won four Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical -- from July 18 - 21 at The Governor's Academy located at 1 Elm Street in Byfield. The production, to be performed by two casts, will showcase the talents of 58 Summer Studio 3 students who range in age from 9 - 14.

With a score by Stephen Schwartz, composer of "Godspell" and "Wicked," and book by Roger O. Hirson, "Pippin" follows a young man on his journey toward finding meaning in his life. Will he choose a happy, simple existence or risk everything for a moment of glory?

Featuring such songs as "Corner of the Sky," "Magic to Do," "Glory," and "Morning Glow," "Pippin" is directed by Lisa Yuen, director of BCT's 2012 Studio 3 production of "Legally Blonde. "Choreography is by Blair Beasley and Brianna Fallon with music direction by Jaime Castellanos.

BCT Executive Artistic Director Burgess Clark commented, "It was wonderful to watch the Tony broadcast and see 'Pippin' win the prestigious award. We had already planned on producing the show this summer and the Tony made it that much more exciting for the students. The score is phenomenal and I know that under the direction of veteran Broadway actress and talented director Lisa Yuen, audiences will be enthralled by what they see and experience in the theater!"
