7:00PM – 9:00 PM

*This is a semi-professional production. The cast includes local professionals as well as members of the BARCLAY Performing Arts Summer Academy. All Cast Members are ages 16 & older*.

BARCLAY Performing Arts brings you THE show of the Summer... HAIR!   HAIR celebrates the sixties counterculture in all its barefoot, long-haired, bell-bottomed, beaded and fringed glory. To an infectiously energetic rock beat, the show wows audiences 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. With relevant themes, powerful music and raucous dance numbers, this is a show you do NOT want to miss! 

The musical celebrates peace and love, taking you back to 1960s New York as young hippies try to make sense of their lives in the shadow of the Vietnam War. The semi-professional production's cast (ages 16 and older) includes local professionals as well as members of the Barclay Performing Arts Summer Academy.
