Osceola Arts continues into the Spring with another musical making its first appearance at the theater. Beginning Friday, April 9th, and running through Sunday, April 25th Pippin will be live on the Main Stage. This musical, with music and lyrics by Steven Schwartz and book by Roger O. Hirson, is the fictitious telling of the young son of medieval French ruler, Charlemagne, who is in search of the secret to a life of fulfillment.
Pippin soon meets a mysterious troupe of players that encourage him to engage in multiple temptations on his road to finding true happiness. Directed by J. Marie Bailey, this production features exciting Fosse-inspired dance numbers, aerial silk performers, and a talented cast of new and returning faces to the Osceola Arts stage. Magic, glory, love, and war await Pippin on his journey to find the meaning of life. Please note: Pippin contains some mature themes and language and is not suitable for young children.
Tickets start at only $25, with seniors, students, and group rates available. Showtimes for Pippin are at 7:30 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, 2 pm on Sundays, and an additional 2 pm matinee performance on Saturday, April 24th. Distanced seating and safety protocols are in place for all performances.
Osceola Arts is pleased to also offer a new visual arts exhibit. The New Urban Contemporary is an exhibition that features local and international artists of different art disciplines who share their creative roots as urban street artists. Florida urban street art aficionado, collector, and exhibition curator, Juan Santos “Nano” of www.publicartnation.com and @publicartprints has put together a collection of works with the goal of raising awareness of the young talent that is flourishing in Central Florida.
