PIPPIN will transfer from the Hope Mill Theatre to the Southwark Playhouse next February

The Manchester transfer of PIPPIN, from the Hope Mill Theatre, will play the Southwark Playhouse from the 23rd February 2018 to the 24th March 2018. 

The show received its Manchester premiere at the city’s award winning theatre in the Summer with a four-week run at Hope Mill Theatre from Friday 25 August to Saturday 23 September.

The cast for PIPPIN included as Mairi Barclay as Fastrada/Berthe (A Damsel In Distress); Jonathan Carlton as Pippin (The Hired Man); Bradley Judge as Lewis (Yank!); Tessa Kadler as Catherine (Carousel); Rhidian Marc as Charles (Phantom Of The Opera, Les Miserables); Genevieve Nicole as Leading Player (Chicago, The Producers); Olivia Faulkner; Andrew Halliday; Scott Hayward; and Ellie Seaton.

PIPPIN tells the story of a young prince, the heir to a throne, and his journey to find meaning to life – only to discover true happiness is more complicated than he thought.

The Tony Award-winning musical was written by Roger O. Hirson and features a stunning score from composer Stephen Schwartz, who composed the global smash hit musical WICKED.

Pippin was the fourth collaboration from Hope Mill Theatre and Aria Entertainment, who first joined forces in January 2016 to spearhead the arts venue as a platform to showcase, revive and bring new musical theatre to the North.

PIPPIN was directed in Manchester by Jonathan O’Boyle (director of Hair, resident director of American in Paris) and co-produced by Guy James; Katy Lipson for Aria Entertainment; and Joseph Houston and William Whelton for Hope Mill Theatre.

The creative team also includes musical director Zach Flis, choreographer William Whelton, designer Maeve Black; lighting designer Aaron J Dootson; and sound designer Chris Bogg.
