Tony Award winning PIPPIN is now playing!

Full of extraordinary acrobatics, wondrous magical feats and soaring songs from Stephen Schwartz (the composer of WICKED and GODSPELL), PIPPIN has been lovingly crafted to become Broadway’s high-flying, death-defying musical. This unforgettable new production is the winner of four Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and was hailed as “Astonishing. A PIPPIN for the 21st century. Dazzling and awe-inspiring.” by Ben Brantley of The New York Times. 

Starring Ainsley Melham (Aladdin on Broadway and across Australia) as the young and confused protagonist Pippin and Gabrielle McClinton (PIPPIN Broadway and US National Tour) as the charming and manipulative Leading Player. Returning to the stage after an extraordinary award winning career in television Kerri-Anne Kennerley plays Berthe, Pippin's saucy grandmother. Simon Burke (Sydney Theatre Company; Les Misérables) plays Pippin's demanding father Charles, Lucy Maunder (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; Beautiful) takes on the widow and mother role of Catherine; Leslie Bell (Broadway's Chicago; Ragtime) will play Fastrada; and Euan Doidge (Les Misérables; Kinky Boots) is Pippin's half-brother Lewis.

PIPPIN tells the story of a young man at a crossroads in his life. Does he follow in the footsteps of his father, one of the most powerful men in the land? Or does he strike out on his own, to find his own ‘corner of the sky?’ PIPPIN is a play within a play. The story is told by a travelling troupe of actors and acrobats (called ‘Players’), directed by the mysterious Leading Player. Like a vaudeville act, the Players both act out the roles of the story and speak directly to the audience.

This award-winning production features many Broadway standards including “Corner of the Sky”, “Magic To Do”, “Glory”, “No Time At All”, “Morning Glow” and “Love Song”. 

Join us... for a magical, unforgettable new PIPPIN.
