There’s magic to do when a prince learns the true meaning of glory, love and war in Stephen Schwartz’s iconic and unforgettable musical masterpiece. Pippin is the story of one young man’s journey to be extraordinary. Winner of four 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival, this updated version continues to captivate the young and the young-at-heart throughout the world. Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince seeks fulfillment in all the ‘expected’ ways – the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father, King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the un-extraordinary moments that happen every day. The musical features one of Stephen Schwarz’s best scores, including songs like Corner of the Sky, No Time At All and Magic to Do!

Based on the MGM film and The Sobbin’ Women by Stephen Vincent Benet
In this unmistakably American take on the war between the sexes, seven frontier women take charge of their destinies (and their men) in 1850s Oregon. Based on the classic film, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is an authentic piece of Americana, a time-tested romantic comedy with a special, contemporary relevance. Saddle up for a western joyride that features great songs like, Bless Your Beautiful Hide, Going Courtin’ and The Sobbin’ Women – plus some of the greatest dance sequences ever on the stage! When Adam and his six unruly brothers think they know what a woman’s place is, Adam’s spirited new wife and a cohort of potential brides show ‘em who’s boss in this golden age American musical.
