This exuberant musical about a group of young Americans searching for peace and love in a turbulent time has struck a resonant chord with audiences young and old.
Originally produced on Broadway in 1968 and was revived in 2009 to glowing notices (it won the Tony award as Best Musical Revival), HAIR features such unforgettable songs as “Aquarius,” “Let the Sunshine In,” “Good Morning Starshine,” and ”Easy to Be Hard.” HAIR depicts the birth of a cultural movement in the 60’s and 70’s that changed America forever.
HAIR follows a group of hopeful, free-spirited young people who advocate a lifestyle of pacifism and free-love in a society riddled with intolerance and brutality during the Vietnam War. It uncorks the effervescent innocence of an age when young people dared to imagine that war and hatred could be drummed out by the irresistible rhythms of love.
While many find HAIR suitable for young adults (13 and older) parental discretion is advised. There is a dimly lit 20 second scene with nudity that is non-sexual in nature and also adult language.
Directed and Chroeographed by Festival Theatre favorite, Michael Susko, HAIR will have Musical Direction by Alex Tirrell, Scenic Design by Trevor Elliott and Lighting Design by David Kahn.
