14The second weekend of a three-weekend run of Sul Ross Theatre Program’s production of Hair
continues after opening last weekend with many theater goers joining in the spirit.
Many came last weekend wearing bell-bottoms, tie-dyed t-shirts and platform shoes, typical of
the hippie style of the 1960s.
The American tribal love-rock musical tells the story of politically-active, long-haired hippies
living in New York City and fighting against conscription into the Vietnam War.
Hair opened on Broadway in 1967, featuring hit songs like Aquarius, Let the Sunshine In, Hair
and Easy to be Hard.
The eclectic score of radio hits simultaneously produced anthems of the anti-Vietnam-War peace
Directed by Professor of Theatre Dona Roman, Hair will run this weekend and next, closing on
Saturday, April 20.
Musical direction is by Music Professors Andrew Algeria, Jeffery Meyer and Karrin Ford.
Curtain times are 8:15 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. for the matinee Sunday in
Marshall Auditorium inside the Sul Ross Morelock Academic Building.
Patrons are advised that Hair contains profanity and adult content.
