Immaculata University’s Cue and Curtain Players Perform “Pippin” for Fall Production

The Cue and Curtain Players, Immaculata University´s drama group, presents a production of the musical "Pippin." Performances are in Alumnae Hall Theater on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, November 19, 20, and 21 at 8:00 p.m. On Sunday, November 22, the matinee begins at 2:00 p.m. The Cue and Curtain Players, all Immaculata University students, perform under the direction of Sister Marcille McEntee, IHM.
In April 2009, "Pippin" became the 29th longest-running show on Broadway, and is loosely based on the life of Charlemagne´s son, with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and the book by Stephen O. Hirson. The musical follows the young prince Pippin who longs to discover the secret of true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh, and the intrigues of political power. In the end, he finds it in the simple pleasures of home and family.
