STREET THEATRE COMPANY announces auditions for its JUNE 2017 production of Stephen Schwartz's seminal hit PIPPIN

Get ready for a new vision of Stephen Schwartz's greatest Broadway hit - before Wicked, that is. Pippin tells the story of a young man looking for meaning in life. Along the way he tries war, sex, politics, and domestic life. Meanwhile, The Players are striving to show us a more nefarious story with Pippin as the main attraction. 

Rehearsals will begin May 1.

Rehearsals are typically Monday-Thursday nights plus Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Not everyone will be called to all rehearsals.

Performances are JUNE 9-25.

Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30 and Sundays at 5:00.
