The Governor's Academy is thrilled to announce its winter musical, Pippin, which will dazzle audiences on Friday, February 16, and Saturday, February 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the Bergmann Theater in the Wilkie Center for the Performing Arts. These two evening performances are free and open to the public.
Bringing together over a quarter of the Academy’s student body, the production showcases the culmination of three months of dedicated effort by a talented cast, an unwavering tech crew, skilled pit band musicians, and dedicated directors. This year's production is particularly special as it marks the debut collaboration of Jack Norton, Spanish teacher and Theater Director, and Declan Siefkas, Director of Choral Music, promising a fresh and dynamic interpretation of this classic tale. Anna Yang, Director of Instrumental Music, directs the pit band and Joe Repczynski, Director of Technical Theater, leads a group of students who manage everything behind the scenes including set construction, lighting, and sound.
Audience members can expect to be whisked away into the vibrant world of Pippin, presented by a carnival-like theatrical troupe, complete with mesmerizing dance performances that may just include a trick or two. Accompanied by music that's sure to have you dancing in your seats, this production invites you to laugh, sing along, and experience a spectacle unlike any other.
As noted by Siefkas, Pippin’s musical director, "It's not something you have seen before." Governor’s invites you to support its performing arts program and talented students in what promises to be an unforgettable journey through the life of Pippin.
