Join us for the 50th anniversary of HAIR! Set in an East Village park in 1967, Hair is the musical story of a group of hippies who celebrate peace and love in the shadow of the Vietnam War. The loose plotline centers on Berger, the charismatic leader of the “tribe,” and Claude, a sweet-natured guy from Queens who’s about to be drafted. Other memorable characters include Berger’s war protester girlfriend Sheila, lovable flower child Crissy, Mick Jagger fan Woof, Claude’s straight-laced parents and many more. But the real star of Hair is the rocking score, which includes such classic hits as “Let the Sun Shine In,” “Aquarius” and “Good Morning Starshine.” Exploring ideas of identity, community, global responsibility and peace, HAIR remains relevant as ever as it examines what it means to be a young person in a changing world.
Handsome, energetic and innocent. Berger's best friend. :(Rock Baritone/Tenor, late teens) Smart, attractive, with a playful side. A lover of life and the picture of a young man next door of the 60's. A charismatic leader that women adore, boys emulate and men will follow into the breach. 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.
Charismatic and larger-than-life. Unrestrained and a natural leader. A social activist recently banished from high school. He knows what is right and sticks to it no matter the consequence. The leader of the tribe. High energy, athletic, wild. Strong presence and, though he may be a young man, he is looked up to.
Rock Alto/ Belt
Pretty and smart, Sheila is a passionate protester from NYC. She wants to change the world through peaceful protest. A second semester student and passionate protester from NYU who lives with Berger and Claude, aspires to spread love, loves Berger but having Claude's baby. The most intelligent of the tribe.
African American Male
Speaks his mind and hopes you can keep up with him. High energy, spiritual performer with a strong voice and presence. A true tone setter that is a natural on stage in any situation.
High energy, young, and versatile, he looks up to Berger and Mick Jagger…in many ways. Needs strong comedic chops.
African American Female
Alto/ mezzo belt
Sassy and lots of fun. Great with comedy and ad-lib vocals.
The youngest female in the tribe. A flower child mourning a lost love.
Sweet and passionately in love with Claude. A follower, not a leader. Incredibly sweet, understands Claude better than anyone. Wise, passionate, creative woman, who is pregnant with the tribe's baby. She has taken every drug, and takes care of the tribe. Strong actress to play comedic and dramatic scenes.
Male and Female
This is not a “chorus”, as the entire cast is a true ensemble. Tribe members sing many featured songs including “Dead End”, “Black Boys”, “White Boys”, “Walking in Space”, “Electric Blues”, “Hippie Life”, etc., and play many roles in the show including the MARGARET MEAD, HUBERT, PRINCIPALS, MOTHER/FATHER, historical figures, and more. Energetic, creative performers with heart and passion.
All auditioners MUST be 18 and older! ALL roles will require some nudity. Auditions are by appointment ONLY. To schedule your appointment call the box office at (225) 924-6496.
