TeenStage is an intensive performance program for Grades 8-12 (or Ages 13-17). Students in the program prepare for multiple performances of the final show–fully-produced, with professionally designed costumes, sets, props, lighting, and a live orchestra in our new theatre space. The Teen program is a shorter but more intensive program than our YouthStage program.

Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the un-extraordinary moments that happen every day. Pippin’s message is universal and will connect with audiences across the age spectrum. The tuneful score includes “Corner of the Sky” and “We’ve Got Magic To Do.”
