Hair

Book and Lyrics by Gerome Ragni & James Rado, Music by Galt MacDermot

The story of a group of young Americans searching for love and peace during the Vietnam era, Hair is at once both a joyous celebration of youth and a poignant journey through a very tumultuous time. Exploring ideas of
identity, community, global responsibility and peace, the themes and struggles in Hair remain vital and relevant
to the times we live in today. Hair features an eclectic score filled with classics, including “Aquarius,” “Let the
Sun Shine In,” “Good Morning, Starshine” and “Easy To Be Hard.” Hair was nominated at the 1969 Tony Award for Best Musical and won a Grammy the same year for Best Score from an Original Cast Show Album. The 2009 revival production won the Tony Award for Best Musical Revival and also received the Drama Desk,
Drama League, and Outer Critics Circle award for Outstanding Revival of a Musical.

Please be advised that this production contains strong language and explores mature themes. Hair includes frank depictions/discussions of: politics, sex, drug use, abuse, profanity, war, and death. There will not, of course, be nudity in this student production.

Ages 15-20 (younger/older with permission.) Acceptance into the intensive is by audition only.

POC and LGTBQ+ people are strongly encouraged to apply!

Educational Theatre. Tuition is $375.00

 

Character Breakdown / Project Needs
GEORGE BERGER – (Rock Baritone/Tenor) - The leader of the Tribe, and a social activist recently banished
from high school. Unrestrained. He knows what is right and sticks to it no matter the consequence. High energy, athletic, wild. Strong presence and, though he may be a young man, he is looked up to.

CLAUDE – (Rock Baritone/Tenor) Smart, with a playful side; a lover of life. Berger's best friend. A charismatic leader that people adore. A man of conscience who struggles with the conflict of what his heart tells him is right and what the authorities around him lead him to believe. Recently received his draft card.

SHEILA – (Rock Alto/Belter) - A student and passionate protester from NYU who lives with Berger and Claude, and aspires to spread love. The most intelligent of the Tribe. Wants to change society through peaceful protest. She’s in love with Berger, and Claude is in love with her.

JEANIE – (Alto) A follower. Incredibly sweet, a caretaker for the Tribe, and understands Claude better than anyone. Wise, passionate, creative woman, who is pregnant with the Tribe's baby.

CRISSY – (Mezzo Soprano) A young lovelorn flower child mourning a lost love. The youngest member of the
Tribe.

DIONNE – (Soul/Rock Alto/Mezzo Belt) African-American. Energetic and fun. A great comedian, with passion and heart.

HUD - (Soul/Rock Baritone/Tenor) African-American – Speaks his mind. High energy and spiritual with a strong presence. A true tone setter that is a natural in any situation.

WOOF - ( Rock Baritone/Tenor) – Gay, but may not want to admit it. High energy, versatile and natural with comedy. Looks up to Berger and Mick Jagger.

TOURIST COUPLE (will double as Tribe) – Two male-identifying performers play MARGRET MEAD and HUBERT. Strong comic timing. One must be willing to appear as a believable woman, while the other is her miserable husband.

TRIBE: This is not a "chorus", as the entire cast is a true ensemble. Tribe members sing many featured songs
and play many roles in the show. Energetic and creative, with heart and passion.
