The Falcon's Eye Theatre at Folsom Lake College calls for FLC students and actors from the community to audition for its spring production of Pippin on February 3 and 4, 2020. All skill levels encouraged to audition.

The Falcon's Eye continues its thirteenth season with an unforgettable score from musical theatre giant Stephen Schwartz. Pippin is the story of one young man's journey to be extraordinary. Young Frankish Prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh, and the intrigues of political power. In the end, Pippin finds happiness not in extraordinary endeavors, but in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.
