TheatreUNI: Hair

TheatreUNI: Hair

Thursday, February 22, 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.”
