FRANKLIN, Mass. — Emily Thompson of New Gloucester has earned the role of featured female ensemble in the Dean College production of “Pippin.”

The show is scheduled to run from Wednesday, March 22 through Sunday, March 26.

“Pippin” is an allegory of a young prince in search of himself. Longing to find passion, adventure, or anything else that will make him feel extraordinary, Prince Pippin goes to war to prove his loyalty to his distracted father, King Charles.

The prince falls in love with Catherine, a widow with a young son, and struggles to decide whether he should settle down and pursue a peaceful life or continue to make magic with a dazzling troupe of performers.

The production will take place at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday on the Main Stage in the Dr. Paula M. Rooney Student Center at Dean College, 109 West Central St., Franklin, Mass.
