Summer would not be the same without the St. Thomas Theatre Project's summer productions. This summer get ready for an adventure with the performance of "Pippin" at the Community School Theatre in Sun Valley from June 16-20.

"Pippin," Steven Schwartz's Tony Award-winning musical, is the story of a young man, Pippin, attempting to find his place in the world. The musical is set in the royal court of Charlemagne the Great. Egged on by a malevolent "leading player," Pippin sets out to reach extraordinary goals, only to realize that perhaps the simple things in life are the most fulfilling.

The musical will feature well-known songs including "Corner of the Sky" and "Magic To Do." The show explores themes of reality versus illusion, and examines the societal pressures that shape youth in their efforts to achieve their dreams.

Freddie Harris directs "Pippin" with musical direction by husband-and-wife team Alyssa and Brad Hershey. Choreography is by Sara Gorby and Sherry Horton. "Pippin" also features Kevin Wade as the Leading Player, Dawson Howard as Pippin and a host of talented young artists from around the Wood River Valley.

"Pippin" will run from Wednesday, June 16, through Sunday, June 20. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7.30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children. For tickets, call 726-5349.
