The Cornerstone Playhouse will host "Pippin" beginning on Sept. 27.

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.

Performance dates are Sept. 27 thru Oct. 6 with Friday and Saturday shows beginning at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinees beginning at 2 p.m. All tickets are reserved seating at $22.50 in advance and $24.50 at the door (incl. $2.50 service fee).
