    The University of Dubuque Department of Fine and Performing Arts and the UD Drama Club Proudly present: Pippin

    PIPPIN, written by Roger O. Hirson and with a score by Stephen Schwartz, is about a young prince on a quest for fulfillment in his life. Will Pippin choose a happy and simple life? Or will he compromise everything for a single moment of fame? With an infectiously unforgettable score from the four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner, and musical theatre giant Stephen Schwartz, Pippin’s message is universal and will connect with audiences across the age spectrum. The production will be directed by University of Dubuque’s director of theatre arts, Amy Ressler.
