Belk Theater - Robinson Hall

The Department of Theatre closes our season with a lush production of the Broadway hit Pippin, produced in partnership with the College of Arts+ Architecture, Department of Dance, and Department of Music. This time-bending musical (music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by Roger O. Hirson) tells the story of an actor named Pippin in search of a place in the world. Replete with its classic score and big dance numbers, our production, directed by Professor Dean Adams, also infuses new energy with contemporary circus arts and aerial performance and plenty of magic (of both the theatrical and sleight-of-hand varieties!). A multiple Tony Award winner when it debuted in 1972 and again for the 2013 Broadway revival, Pippin is a big-hearted tale of adventure and self-discovery. 

Tickets: $8-$18(Faculty, staff, and students in the College of Arts + Architecture are eligible for complimentary tickets. Please log into the ticketing system to access those benefits.)
