UNI Calendar of Events

Performing Arts, Music and Theatre

Thursday, March 1, 2018 - 7:30 pm

The people you call the cops on because they are still too damn loud? A young couple whose intimacy you hear through the walls? That lady who walks in uninvited at all times? The immigrants who curse in a strange language? The people who are hiding in the basement together during the war? The guy who does bad things when you are not looking? A series of poetic performances explore what it means to be a neighbor in times of crisis. This production includes mature language and themes.

Thursday, March 1, 2018 - 7:30 pm
Book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni and music by Galt MacDermot.

Celebrating the 50th Anniversary!

Sex. Drugs. Love. War.

It’s the 1960s. It’s an era of rock n’ roll, social movements, civil rights activism, and the attempt to let “peace guide the planets, and love steer the stars.” In a time of opposing views, in a country divided, a group of friends works to find love, fight for their beliefs, and “believe that now is the time for all good men to believe in love.”

Hair: a story of people who -- facing a world of hardships -- fight for social justice, and against the draft. In order to maintain their beliefs and change the world, they must work together to promote safety, change, equality, and to “let the Sunshine in.”
