The University of Tulsa’s Department of Theatre will present the groundbreaking, groovy, psychedelic musical HAIR: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical on Oct. 13, 14, 15 and 20 at 8 p.m., Oct. 21 at 8:30 p.m. and Oct. 16 and 23 at 2 p.m. A special matinee will be held for area high school students on Oct. 14 at 10 a.m. All performances will be held in Kendall Hall’s Chapman Theatre on the TU campus.
HAIR celebrates the revolutionary counterculture movement of the 1960s, following a “tribe” of young, politically active hippies seeking to embrace a lifestyle of love, peace and freedom, while rejecting the conservative values of their parents. Their bohemian world is rocked when Claude, the tribe’s leading light, struggles with the decision to burn his draft card or risk his life fighting a war he doesn’t support.
This Tony-nominated and Grammy-winning show invites you to be a part of the “Be-In” and sing along with “Aquarius,” “Easy to be Hard” and “Let the Sunshine In.” Written by James Rado and Gerome Ragni with music by Galt MacDermot, HAIR boldly and joyfully depicts ’60s flower children striving for spiritual enlightenment amidst the newly adopted Civil Rights Act and the looming threat of the Vietnam War. The dynamic energy of youth and the issues of these revolutionary times still have remarkable resonance today.
Admission is $20 for adults, $10 for senior citizens and area students and $6 for TU students, faculty and staff. Tickets may be purchased online at myticketoffice.com, by phone at 918-631-2567 or at the Kendall Hall box office.
