Pandemic can’t stop ‘Pippin’
The show goes on
In yet another example of creative perseverance, a group of southern New Hampshire students are showing the coronavirus who’s boss.
The Timberlane Players – the drama club at Timberlane Regional High School, in Plaistow – were beginning work on the spring musical. This time it was going to be ‘Pippin,’ the story of a young prince and his search for meaning and significance. Then the pandemic arrived, schools were shut down for the year and the seniors saw their final high school production go dark.
Senior Eli Duff and sophomore Cece Romano wouldn’t have it, however. They organized many of the Players and began Project Pippin. Together, 24 students remotely recorded and performed “Morning Glow.”
