Here is some information about the show: With an infectiously unforgettable score from the four-time Grammy-winner, three-time Oscar-winner, and musical theatre giant Stephen Schwartz (WICKED, GODSPELL, CHILDREN OF EDEN), PIPPIN has been successfully produced on stages ranging from High School to Broadway. Sweeping the New York Awards circuit (Tony, Drama Desk, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle) in 2013, PIPPIN continues to captivate the young at heart throughout the world.

The story is: In the Middle Ages heir to the Frankish throne, prince Pippin, searches for the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of love and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father King Charlemagne the Great). In the end Pippin discovers that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the un-extraordinary moments that happen every day.

The students have trained hard this summer. This is about the classes: It was a triple threat program that emphasizes acting, singing and dancing for the professional stage. Multiple DSM Academy instructors teach this intensive. Morning activities include classes in Acting, How to Audition, Lessons about Agents, Voice, Steven Kavner’s Improv for the Actor, Circus Skills and preparation of Broadway songs to be filmed as a keepsake. In the afternoon skills taught in the morning are applied to the script and score of Stephen Schwartz’s PIPPIN. This is an intense program geared for the serious student. Music Theatre International rates the script PG-13.

Evidence shows that arts education has a powerful effect on student achievement. When students participate in arts programs along with the core subjects of math, science, language, and social studies, these young people are:
* Three times more likely to be elected to class office.
* Four times more likely to participate in math and science.
* Three times more likely to win an award for school attendance.
* Four times more likely to win an award for writing an essay or poem.
* Four more times likely to be recognized for academic achievement.*
