What’s On This Week

March 22 – 28

Opening This Week

John Abbott College

Pippin

Pippin features a troupe of eccentric performers, led by the charismatic Leading Player. Through song, dance and real magic, the ensemble cast tells the story of Pippin, a young prince who longs to find passion and adventure in his life. To prove his loyalty to his distracted father, King Charles, Pippin goes to war. But when the Leading Player convinces the prince to fight tyranny, Pippin kills Charles and takes over the throne. Realizing his mistake, Pippin begs the Leading Player to bring his father back to life, and she obliges. The prince falls in love with Catherine, a widow with a young son, and (much to the Leading Player’s chagrin), Pippin struggles to decide whether he should settle down and pursue a peaceful life or continue to make magic with the dazzling troupe of performers.

Revolution They Wrote Festival

Revolution They Wrote in partnership with MainLine Theatre is proud the present the fourth annual Short Works Feminist Theatre and Performance Festival! We aim to give voice to intersectional feminist artists whose unique visions for empowerment and liberty deserve to be heard.

The theme of this year’s festival focuses on the body. Ten artists divided into two programs and two readings will present works that thematically explore the power, vulnerability, and ownership of female and nonbinary bodies.

The festival includes a jam-packed lineup of performances, talkbacks and readings. For show summaries and more information please visit https://revolutiontheywrote.com/2018-festival/
