Pippin - the musical

written by: 
Book by Roger O. Hirson
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwarz
directed by: 
Robb Correll

In this iconic 1970s musical from the creator of "Wicked" and "Godspell" we follow Pippin, the eldest son of King Charlemagne, in his search to live an extraordinary life and to find his “corner of the sky". The story is told by a troupe of performers, who lead the prince through his existential explorations to the realisation that true happiness is more complicated than he thought. This Tony Award-winning show was revived on Broadway in 2013 and is a delightful music and dance spectacle of a timeless coming of age story. 

Welcome to Upstage:

Berne's English-language Amateur Theatre Group

Located in beautiful Berne, Switzerland, Upstage staged their first production in 1982. Since then our lively theatre group has staged over 75 productions and has become a permanent part of the Bernese theatre scene. Each year we put on an autumn and a spring production at the Theater am Käfigturm. Throughout the year we hold regular play readings and workshops. All dates and venues are publicized on this website and are also published on our Facebook page.

Each production requires the participation of many volunteers both onstage and behind the scenes. If you are interested in joining us, Upstage offers a wide range of opportunities to participate in English-language theatre productions. We might have something just right for you!
