dfts pippenCAVE CREEK – Desert Foothills Theater (DFT), a program of the Foothills Community Foundation, presents “Pippin” set for Thurs., Jan. 24 – Sun., Feb. 10 in the Cabaret Theater at the FCF-Holland Community Center, 34250 N. 60th Street, Building B, in Scottsdale.

Directed by Mark Clemente with musical direction by Daniel Kurek, Pippin is a hip, tongue-in-cheek, anachronistic fairy tale that captivated Broadway audiences and continues to appeal to the young at heart everywhere. The energetic pop-influenced score by three-time Oscar-winning composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Children of Eden, and the animated films Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Prince Of Egypt) bursts with one show-stopping number after another, from soaring ballads to infectious dance numbers.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and at 2 p.m. on Sundays, with a post-show Q & A on Sun., Feb. 10. (Note: There is no show on Feb. 9). Adult tickets range from $15 to $20; youth tickets range from $10 to $20.
