April 26-29—WOODSTOCK—Having had an amazing opening weekend, “Hair: The Tribal Rock Musical” will be performed four more times this weekend: Thursday, April 26; Friday, April 27; and Saturday, April 28 all at 7:30 p.m.; plus a 4 p.m. matinee on Sunday, April 29. Shows are performed at the Woodstock Town Hall Theatre, 31 the Green, Woodstock.
Don’t miss the chance to experience this powerful production about racism, sexism, war and violence, love and the polarized world in which we live. The leads include, Claude, a pensive introvert; his free-spirit friend Berger; their roommate college student, activist Shelia; and their friends, as they try to balance their lives, set against the Vietnam war and the waves of protest movements. Claude is confronted with a choice to resist the draft, which conforms to his pacifist nature, or succumb to the pressure from his parents and society to serve in Vietnam.
Exploring ideas of identity, community, global responsibility and peace, “Hair” remains as relevant as ever as it examines what it means to be a young person in a changing world.
Tickets are available by calling 802-457-3981 or at pentanglearts.org/hair. Parental advisory: Contains explicit content, nudity, drug references, sexual references and violence.
