Take one pampered, self-centered young man, the eldest son of the great king Charlemagne. Throw in the desire to become great and mix with handfuls of war, politics, death, magic and love. Garnish with catchy tunes and elaborate dance routines, and you have the delectable musical ‚??Pippin.‚?Ě

The Wyoming Seminary Players will present three performances of ‚??Pippin‚?Ě on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 2 and 3 at 8 p.m., and on Sunday, Nov. 4 at 2 p.m. in the Buckingham Performing Arts Center, North Sprague Avenue, Kingston.
The production is open to the public and tickets are $4 in advance, $5 at the door.

Opening at Broadway‚??s Imperial Theater in October, 1972, ‚??Pippin‚?Ě ran for 1,994 performances and received five Tony Awards in 1973. The show features music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, who wrote for ‚??‚?ĚWicked,‚?Ě ‚??Godspell,‚?Ě ‚??Prince of Egypt‚?Ě and ‚??Pocahontas.‚?Ě

Bob Fosse directed and choreographed the show, which became known for its spectacular music and dance numbers.

The production will include a variety of dance ensembles, choreographed by Wyoming Seminary choreographer/dance teacher Bernardine Vojtko. The stage starts out empty and gradually fills as the show progresses, with actors carrying some sets on stage and other sets flying in. But everything disappears at the final scene and the stage is bare once more. Noah Sunday-Lefkowitz, a junior from Shavertown, plays Pippin, while senior Harold Roberts of New York City, N.Y. is the Leading Player and senior Siobhan Brier of Scranton appears as Fastrada.

This production is part of Wyoming Seminary‚??s 2012-2013 Performing Arts Series. For more information call 270.2192.
