Circus Creation by Gypsy Snider of Les 7 Doigts de la Main

Stephen Schwartz’s beloved coming-of-age musical features bold new staging by Diane Paulus and choreography by Gypsy Snider of Montreal’s ultra-hip circus troupe Les 7 Doigts de la Main. Spurred on by a mysterious group of performers, royal heir Pippin embarks on a death-defying journey to find his “corner of the sky.” Recommended for grades 6 and up as it contains mature themes, provocative dancing, and some cursing, but a really fun score.
