PIPPIN is the tongue-in-cheek, anachronistic fairy tale that captivated Broadway audiences and continues to appeal to the young at heart everywhere. Pippin is a young prince who longs to discover the secret of true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power. In the end, he finds it in the simple pleasures of home and family. The energetic pop-influenced score bursts with one show-stopping number after another, from soaring ballads to infectious dance numbers. PIPPIN is by three-time Oscar®-winning composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz, the creator of the Broadway hits WICKED and GODSPELL, and the animated films POCAHONTAS, THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME and THE PRINCE OF EGYPT, among many other musicals!

High Street Bridge Progress In Pottstown

Here are the latest and greatest (haha) pictures of the High Street Bridge construction in Pottstown.  As you can see, the Manatawny has been completed spanned and the deck is being laid.  The project is actually moving ahead well considering the awful weather for the last several months, including flooding!
