On April 7, Bristol Community College's Theatre program will host its first main stage production since the pandemic began with Pippin with musical direction by faculty from the UMass Dartmouth Music Department.

The collaborative production is directed by Elizabeth Bettencourt, Assistant Artistic Director of New Bedford Festival Theatre. The production also includes musical direction from Dan Monte, Associate Professor at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, and choreography by Brooklyn Toli, Assistant Professor of Theater at the Boston Conservatory at Berklee. Book by Roger O. Hirson. Music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz.

In this odyssey of self-discovery, young Prince Pippin searches for meaning and satisfaction in his life. This magical, musical classic follows Pippin on his quest through war, murder, temptation, and love as he attempts to find his "Corner of the Sky."

The musical production will be held in the Margaret L. Jackson Arts Center Main Stage Theatre on Bristol CC's Fall River Campus from Thursday, April 7, through Saturday, April 9, beginning at 7 p.m.
