APRIL 17 - MAY 3
With deep care and concern for our patrons and artists, ArtsCentric has made the difficult decision to postpone our production of Hair. We take this virus very seriously and have taken preventative steps to combat potential exposure to it. Once this emergency period ends, we will join the state of Maryland in rejoicing and “Let the Sunshine In!” Hair will now run April 17 - May 3. Patrons who have purchased tickets will be contacted immediately about moving their tickets to the new run dates. We look forward to seeing you when we open this wonderful production.
In a 21st century America where the voices of the outcasts are still crying to be heard, Hair, a musical written over 50 years ago still resounds with the climate of American society today.
Hair tells the story of the "tribe", a group of politically active, long-haired hippies of the "Age of Aquarius" living a bohemian life in New York City and fighting against conscription into the Vietnam War. Claude, his good friend Berger, their roommate Sheila and their friends struggle to balance their young lives, loves, and the sexual revolution with their rebellion against the war and their conservative parents and society. Ultimately, Claude must decide whether to resist the draft as his friends have done, or to succumb to the pressures of his parents to serve in Vietnam, compromising his principles and risking his life.
