One hundred and fifty students participated either on stage or behind the scenes in the Upper School performance of Pippin last weekend. All three shows were performed to a sold-out Hale Theater in Thayer's Center for the Arts.
"Our fall musicals are always chosen to feature our large ensemble composed of field hockey players, theatre kids, varsity football and soccer athletes, track stars, scenic artists, scientists, hockey players, mathletes, student leaders...a full representative of our Thayer community, and a team built from all teams," says Director Kelly Hines P'18, '19. "It is astounding to watch kids dash in from the soccer field and the football field and the track and pour their hearts into rehearsals day after day while balancing homework and friendships and family life."
"On the surface a traditional musical with spectacular ensemble dance numbers in the Fosse style, Pippin has, at its heart, a thoughtful commentary on what it means to be extraordinary and the lengths to which people will go to reach their own potential," she says.
Congratulations to the cast and crew!
