CUMMING, Ga. - The School Street Playhouse proudly presents the 2013 Tony Award-winning revival of time-honored musical “Pippin,” March 5-29 in Cumming at the School Street Playhouse.

“Pippin” is both a humorous story about growing up and a dark tale of the danger of false appearances and empty promises. An ensemble of dancers tells the story in this stylized musical of young prince Pippin’s quest for true happiness.

Pippin, played by Sean Anderson, explores the glories of war, the temptations of love, and the intrigues of political power before discovering happiness lies not in the extraordinary but in the ordinary moments of everyday life.

The production will be directed by Kyle Larsen and choreographed by Buddy Stotts. Kyle, an award-winning director, has brought many wonderful performances to the Playhouse in the past, including productions of “Georgia Senior Follies,” “Annie” and “Mamma Mia!”

Stotts brings “Pippin” to life with his successful career in Broadway and in film.

Following the premier, performances are slated for every Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., and Sunday at 3 p.m. through March 29.

Tickets for "Pippin the Musical" are $27.50 for Thursday evenings and Sunday matinees and $30.00 for Friday and Saturday evenings. All seats are reserved. Tickets can be purchased at the School Street Playhouse, online at or by calling the office at 770-781-9178. The School Street Playhouse, 101 School Street, offers free parking.
