If you’re interested in studying a Bachelor of Music Theatre at AIM in 2024, sign up for our audition day.
The Australian Institute of Music Melbourne campus presents Pippin, presented by our Music Theatre students and academics. Directed by Johanna Allen, with musical direction by Stephen Gray. Held in AIM’s premiere concert hall, the Peter Calvo Auditorium.
As told by a traveling troupe of actors led by the cunning and charming Leading Player, Pippin is the story of a young prince, heir to the throne, who is searching for his own “corner of the sky.”
Pippin returns from university certain that he will find a fulfilling purpose in life. As encouraged by the Leading Player, Pippin dabbles in bloody battle, lusty entanglements, and saavy political maneuvers; only to discover that true happiness is more complicated than he thought. With infectious tunes by Stephen Schwartz and classic choreography from Bob Fosse, Pippin is both a humorous portrayal about growing up and a dark tale of the danger of false appearances and empty promises.
