‘Hair’ now at Centenary Stage Company’s 2018 Summer Jamfest

HAIR CentStgCo (2)-small

Centenary Stage Company’s 2018 Summer Jamfest continues with the first ever summer musical production. Centenary Stage Company will present "Hair" July 27 through August 5 in the Lackland Performing Arts Center.
        The year 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of this first rock musical to hit the 'Great White Way'.   "Hair" was  the product of hippie counter-culture and the sexual revolution of the 1960s, and the ground-breaking production established the genre of "Rock Musical", a mantle carried later by shows as diverse as "Jesus Christ Superstar" and "Rent".  With music and lyrics by Gerome Ragni, James Rado and Galt MacDermot, "Hair"  celebrates the sixties counterculture in all its barefoot, long-haired, bell-bottomed, beaded and fringed glory, to an infectiously energetic rock beat with songs like “Aquarius,” “Good Morning, Starshine,” “Hair,” “I Got Life,” and “Let the Sun Shine.”   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.
        Centenary Stage Company's production of "Hair" runs July 27 through August 5. Specific performance dates are Fridays, July 27 at 2:00pm, 8pm and August 3 at 8pm; Saturdays, July 28 and August 4 at 8pm; Sunday August 5 at 2pm and Thursday, August 2 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $27.50 for adults on Fridays. Saturday evenings are $29.50 for adults. Sunday matinees are $25.00 for adults. Thursday evening is $27.50 for all seats with a buy one/get one rush ticket special when purchased in person at the Centenary Stage Company box office beginning at 5:30pm.
