Pippin is a show-within- a-show style musical based on historical figures Pippin and Charlemagne. The play follows Pippin in his quest to find existential fulfillment and happiness. While the events within the show are not historically accurate, the happenings are hilarious, fun, and full of adventure. Pippin is being performed by Greenwich High School’s Onstage program.

On Stage is a class that any student can take. Through this class students of all theatre experience levels gain the opportunity to work on a full scale musical.

Every student gets a role and everyone has to pitch in to make the show rise to its full potential. Unlike many other electives at Greenwich High School, Onstage can be taken all four years.

That that translates to four musical theater opportunities for students that otherwise might not have the time.

“It’s great to be able to start out as a freshman and grow along side all the other students. You get to see the transition of going from a freshman learning from the upperclassmen to being an upperclassmen helping the younger students,” said senior, Gabi Bastek.

Fellow senior, Kiyana Marsh, added that On Stage creates a great environment.

“Everyone loves being together, everyone loves the show, and it just creates an energy,” she said.

Pippin will be performed in the Greenwich High School Black Box theater from December 14 through 17.
