"Theatre Under The Stars (TUTS) will hold auditions in Houston on May 6th and 7th for the upcoming production of PIPPIN, slated to run at the Miller Outdoor Theatre this summer.

PIPPIN will be directed and choreographed by Michelle Gaudette who directed MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET for TUTS last summer at Miller Outdoor Theatre.

“We are so looking forward to our annual summer shows at Miller Outdoor Theatre. Our relationship with our friends and colleagues at Miller Outdoor Theatre provides us with the opportunity to remember our beginnings there nearly 50 years ago. Our lineup for this summer, which includes PIPPIN, will build upon our tradition of providing access to some of Houston’s best musical theatre. We are delighted to be working with our long-time collaborator Michelle Gaudette and our immensely talented local actors to create a summer line-up that inspires, entertains, and celebrates all that is great about Houston and the Houston arts scene,” said Hillary Hart, Executive Director of Theatre Under The Stars.

PIPPIN, a circus inspired production, features a troupe of acrobatic performers led by a very charismatic Leading Player. The performers’ main purpose is to tell the story of Pippin, a young prince who is longing to find adventure and passion in all areas of his life.
PIPPIN, with book by Roger O. Hirson and music & lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, will play at Miller Outdoor Theatre July 11-16, 2017.

The Houston auditions will take place at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts in the Administration Building, located at 800 Bagby St.,
Houston, Texas 77002, and the schedule for the days will be as follows:
Saturday, May 6th
2-6 p.m.
Combined EPA / ECC
7-11 p.m.
Combined Male / Female Dance Call
Sunday, May 7th
10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
By Appointment ONLY
3-7 p.m.

Anyone interested in this audition should come fully prepared. Auditioners should be aware that TUTS complies with all Actor’s Equity Association guidelines, and that all rehearsals for the production are held in the daytime during normal business hours.
To schedule an appointment or for any questions about the auditions, please email

Rehearsals for PIPPIN will begin on June 23rd. For more information, visit

Leading Player:
Male/Female, Any ethnicity. The ultimate ‘ring leader.’ Masterfully charming and manipulative, the Leading Player is a chameleon of sorts. Guides Pippin through his own story and tries to intervene at the end. Excellent dancer. Obsessed with putting on a great show for the audience. Ab4 – Db3

Male, Any ethnicity, 16 – 25, our story’s young and confused protagonist. He is longing to find his purpose in life. Naive, innocent, and discontent. Eventually finds love, and meaning in life, with Catherine and Theo. Ab4 – G2

Male, Any ethnicity, 55 – 70, Pippin’s demanding father. As the King of the Holy Roman Empire, Charlemagne is more comfortable wielding a sword than breaking bread. He wears his years with great pride. E4 – G2

Male, Any ethnicity, 25 -35, the son of Charles and Fastrada. More brawn than brains. The perfect soldier, who loves Lewis above all else. Baritone.

Female, Any ethnicity, 35 – 55, Pippin’s conniving stepmother. A seductress, who is no stranger to deceit and betrayal, she is both sexy and smart. Skilled at using her sexual appeal to benefit her and her son. F5 – A3

Female, Any Ethnicity, 60 – 80, Pippin’s saucy grandmother. A brassy broad full of wisdom, grace, and sass. She tries to help Pippin and encourages him to live his life to the fullest. C5 – E3

Female, Any Ethnicity, 25 – 40, a widow and mother. She is a beautiful and a hopeless romantic, who possesses graceful elegance. Encounters Pippin at his lowest point and eventually falls in love with him. Db5 – F#3

Male/Female. Any ethnicity. Strong Dancers. Charlemagne’s Army, Monks, Nobility, Peasants, The Players.

By Pat Cook

STORY: "If there's any skeletons in the closet, I'll find them!" states Angie, who then opens a closet and has a skeleton literally fly in her face. This is one of the many surprises that faces the undercover police woman who just took on a job as a "domestic engineer," hired by Dr. Hugh Bernard to "find out what's going on." Five elderly spinsters live in the same house and all apparently, hate each other. And what a group. There's Evelyn, who keeps acting out death scenes for Fiona, who's writing some sort of novel. Then there's Catherine, who keeps alluding to her "garden." And Beryl, who carries a pistol and has really hired Angie, unbeknownst to the doctor. And finally, there's Dinah a senior citizen Hell's Angel.
What keeps these women together? And what dark secret are they all hiding? And why do they keep Dying? Find out in this comedy chiller, where you are not sure who or what to believe, who is really murdering who. And finally, what really happened to Jinx the cat?

Dr Hugh Bernard – A reserved physician in his 40's.
Angie Bowles – A young attractive woman in her late 20's.
Beryl Chartres – A feisty woman in her early 70's.
Evelyn Harrigan – An argumentative former actress
in her 70's.
