‘PIPPIN’ runs at Manchester’s Hope Mill Theatre from 25 August to 23 September, 2017

Audiences can expect a magical theatrical experience when the revival of an award-winning musical has its Manchester premiere at the city’s newest theatre.

The latest collaboration between Manchester’s Hope Mill Theatre and Aria Entertainment, PIPPIN will run from Friday 25 August to Saturday 23 September in the acclaimed 150-seater Ancoats venue.

The Tony Award-winning PIPPIN, directed by Jonathan O’Boyle and co-produced by Guy James, tells the story of a young prince, the heir to a throne, and his journey to find meaning to life – only to discover true happiness is more complicated than he thought.

PIPPIN was written by Roger O. Hirson and has a stunning score from composer Stephen Schwartz.

Aria Entertainment’s Producer and Company Director Katy Lipson said:

“Once again I am delighted to be working at Hope Mill Theatre on our fourth collaboration, PIPPIN by the renowned composer and lyricist Stephen Schwartz. We continue to bring work which is accessible but challenges audiences both old and new. We feel PIPPIN is the perfect musical to follow our productions of Parade, Hair and Yank and we are excited to continue bringing intimate, powerful fringe theatre to Manchester’s audiences, this time joined by our trusted co-producer Guy James.”

Aria Entertainment is a theatrical production company headed by Manchester-born Katy Lipson, who has a wealth of experience in producing new and established works in the West End, Off West End, Edinburgh Festival and UK tours. Each year, Aria Entertainment produces at least one musical revival; new British musical; new American musical; a play; new cabaret show; and a season of new musical theatre called From Page to Stage.

Hope Mill Theatre opened in December 2015, and is located in the Grade II Listed Hope Mill. The theatre is the brainchild of Joseph Houston and William Whelton who, after a career in theatre and living in London, were inspired by the highly regarded Off West End Theatres and wanted to replicate them by forming a creative hub in Manchester.
