THE story of a young prince on his search for ‘meaning and significance’ will be performed next month by the award-winning Reading Operatic Society (ROS).

Pippin, a 1972 musical with music and lyrics by four-time Grammy winner and three-time Oscar winner Stephen Schwartz, is about the heir to the Frankish throne finding ‘true happiness’.

Winner of four 2013 Tony Awards including ‘Best Musical Revival’, this updated magic-inspired version of Pippin continues to captivate and appeal to the young at heart throughout the world.
