Hair tells the story of Vietnam-era youths awkwardly but exuberantly creating their own rite of passage through the confusion around them. Among them are Claude and Berger; a pair of friends battling against Claude’s draft notice, and Sheila, who is in love with both of them, but her politically-active lifestyle leaves her little time to act on her feelings. Ultimately, Claude decides that the hippie life isn’t for him and goes to Vietnam. With themes of alienation and civil disobedience Hair illustrates the ’60s generation’s search for meaning through various “be-ins,” “love-ins” and protests.
NOTE: This production will feature some nudity. Performers should be prepared to note on their audition form whether they are comfortable performing nude. Nudity will not be required at the audition.
