Pippin Event Cover

PIPPIN was presented in Fall 2019 at the Pal Studio Theatre.


The UBC Musical Theatre Troupe is proud to present an extraordinary production filled with glory, love, war and magic – “Pippin”. We hope you’ll join us!

The ensemble cast tells the story of Pippin, a young prince who longs to find passion and adventure in his life. To prove his loyalty to his distracted father, King Charles, Pippin goes to war. But when the Leading Player convinces the prince to fight tyranny, Pippin kills Charles and takes over the throne. Realizing his mistake, Pippin begs the Leading Player to bring his father back to life, and she obliges. The prince falls in love with Catherine, a widow with a young son, and (much to the Leading Player’s chagrin), Pippin struggles to decide whether he should settle down and pursue a peaceful life or continue to make magic with the dazzling troupe of performers.
