Mac-Haydn Theatre Presents Pippin

The Mac-Haydn kicks off their 2021 season with a new production of Pippin. The show opens on July 29th, with performances through August 8.

There’s magic to do when a young man learns the true meaning of glory, love and war in Stephen Schwartz’s iconic and unforgettable musical masterpiece. Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power. In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz
Book by Roger O. Hirson

Being staged for the first time ever at the Mac-Haydn, Pippin promises to be a magical start to the 2021 season.
