Theatre: Pippin for Sydney in December

November 14th, 2011



“I wanted magic shows and miracles”

  • 7-17 December 2011

Pippin, the Broadway hit, returns to the Sydney stage in December 2011 when dynamic young independent theatre company CrinkleCut Productions present the darkly comic musical parable.

Pippin is the son of King Charlemagne. He has a kingdom at his feet but he is lost and unhappy. He needs to find something fulfilling amongst the hedonism and war of his father’s empire or his life won’t have meaning. While searching he encounters miraculous acts of illusion, drag, burlesque and acrobatics. But Pippin is desperate to find his own extraordinary act.

From the award-winning composer of Wicked, Pippin is a spectacular parable with a heart of darkness.

Crinkle Cut’s production is directed by Benita de Wit, with musical direction by Andy Peterson – leading a 6 piece live band – choreography by Simone Salle and design by Marissa Dale-Johnson. It stars Benjamin Hoetjes as the Leading Player, Mitchell Lagos as Pippin, Sydney drag legend Gaynor Tension as Berthe, David Attrill as Charlemagne, Aimee Timmins as Catherine, Erin Bruce as Fastrada, Phil McIntosh as Lewis, Zach Smith as Theo plus featured dancers Kat Hoyos and Sam Larielle.
