SYNOPSIS:
HAIR tells the story of a group of Vietnam-era Americans exuberantly creating their own rite of passage through the confusion and turmoil happening in the world around them.  The musical popularized and polarized the spirit of the 60’s and has struck a resonant chord with audiences of all ages for over fifty years.  The show features unforgettable songs including ‘Aquarius,’ ‘Easy To Be Hard,’ ‘Hair,’ and ‘Let The Sun Shine In.’ HAIR illustrates a timeless portrait of a movement that changed the world.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:
George Berger (Rock/Baritone/Tenor) – the charismatic leader of the tribe

Claude (Rock Baritone/Tenor) – the questioning, conflicted member of the tribe

Sheila (Rock Alto/Belt) – NYU student and passionate protestor, the most intelligent of the tribe

Jeanie (Alto) – wise, passionate, quirky and caring

Crissy (Mezzo) – a young lovelorn flower child

Dionne (Soul/Rock Alto/Mezzo Belt) – African-American – energetic and fun, great with comedy

Hud (Soul/Rock Baritone/Tenor) – African American – high-energy, spiritual performer

Woof (Rock Baritone/Tenor) – loves life and Mother Earth, high-energy, versatile comic actor

The Tribe (All ethnicities/various vocal ranges) – not a typical musical chorus as the entire cast is a true ensemble.  Tribe members sing lead in many featured songs including ‘Aquarius,’ ‘Black Boys,’ ‘White Boys,’ ‘Walking In Space,’ etc.  Play many roles in the show including principals, parents, historical figures and more.  The Tribe requires energetic and creative performers with heart and passion.
