Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim’s Daughter Longstocking lives a kid’s dream life, answering to no one and doing as she pleases as mistress of Villa Villekulla. Bending iron bars as easily as she bends rules, Pippi rallies friends Tommy and Annika into tormenting civilized adults and teaching less-civilized ones a lesson. Uproarious and glorious, it’s a musical production filled with joy, rabble-rousing and adventure.
Pippi Longstocking, is a freckled, red-headed tomboy whose pig-tails defy gravity. She is the world’s strongest girl, the most unconventional and assertive. This is a tale loaded with energy and fun from the opening number with its rows of neatly dressed singing children; then Pippi makes her entrance – from the roof of her house. Pippi is not a conventional child, most children live with their parents, she lives with a monkey and her horse, her mother is up in heaven and her father is a Pirate, currently lost at sea. It is her nemesis, the pompous and condescending Mrs. Pryssellius, which brings out Pippi’s most atrocious behavior.
