We are looking for women and men ages 18 to 40 to fill principal and ensemble roles. Please be prepared to sing a song of your choice, preferably in the same style as HAIR (rock musical), but not from the show. You may sing as much or as little as you’d like. Be sure to choose music that best displays your vocal range and features your strengths! An accompanist will be provided. Please bring clearly marked, legible music. You may also sing a cappella if desired.
The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical, Hair broke new ground in musical theatre in defining the genre of rock musical. Enormously popular, enormously controversial, and enormously impacting, In the late 1960s, Hair dared to bring nudity, our drug culture, our participation in the Vietnam war, and our love of freedom onto the stage in song, dance, and moving scenes of love and misunderstanding. Hair added songs to America’s culture still sung today: “Aquarius,” “Good Morning Starshine,” “Easy to be Hard.” Our summer show is meant to be edgy.
Recommended for ages 18 and up.
