TIFTON — The Tift Community Players presented ‘Pippin’ in Fulwood Park June 26-27.
“In tonight’s musical, Pippin starts out seeking the magic of an extraordinary life filled with meaning and self-fulfillment,” said Director Dr. Brian Ray in the program. “But along the way, he discovers that what others find fulfilling does not work for him. At the end, instead of becoming a bright shooting star, Pippin is left with a life that many of us find to be very rewarding: love and a family.”
“We were so pleased to see such a great turnout of local support for community theatre for Pippin with over 200 attendees over two nights at the Syd Blackmarr Stage,” said Kirsten McAlpin. "While we loved the outdoor experience at Fulwood Park, we are excited to share that we will be hosting our three-week-long Summer Kids’ Theatre Camp beginning July 6 with public performances at the Tift Theatre at 7 p.m. on July 24 and July 25. This year’s theme is Willy Wonka Kids and we can’t wait to enter a “world of pure imagination” and teach the love of theatre to children in our area. Social distancing regulations will be utilized for both camp and the public performances.”
The production was directed by Dr. Brian Ray.

Jonathan Handley as Leading Player, Ryan Norton as Pippin, Patrick Ireland as Charles, Alex Joiner as Lewis, Lindsey Dykes as Fastrada, David Handley as Berthe, Alena Norton as Catherine, Elijah McKinnon as Theo.
