This was the final performance of
the Theatre Department of Cicely Tyson High School's production
of the musical Pippin (Book by Roger
O. Hirson, Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz) begins. This
collection of photos will show the cast curtain calls in which
they received well deserved applause for the excellent
performances they gave.
Justin Reed, who plays Catherine's young son
Theo, whom Pippin adopts as his own, was used by Director James
Lemon to give a new ending that the play never had before. As the
heir to Pippin's dream, Theo gives a heart-rending version of
Pippin's dream song "Got to Find My Corner of the Sky",
and for that Justin received a standing ovation when he appeared
for his curtain call. He sang it with a strong clear voice that
deserves respect and will undoubtedly be heard again and again in
Cicely Tyson productions.

get some help recalling all of them. Additional information about
the performance will also be added in the near future.
