Open Auditions in New Jersey for Hair, the Musical

02/13/2018

HAIR : The American Tribal Love Rock Musical

Location: Montclair, NJ

Type: Theater

Transcendental meditation on the ocean of reality is Love…Peace… Justice… Freedom…Tolerance… Happiness…Liberation… These opening lines of HAIR sum up the spirit of the show that introduced the ‘rock musical’ to the world.

Pioneer Productions Company, Inc. will be holding auditions for their summer production of “HAIR”, premiering at The Fair Lawn Community Center George Frey Center of the Arts July 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, & 15, 2018.

Hair tells the story of Vietnam-era youths awkwardly but exuberantly creating their own rite of passage through the confusion around them. Among them are Claude and Berger; a pair of friends battling against Claude’s draft notice, and Sheila, who is in love with both but her politically-active lifestyle leaves her little time to act on her feelings. Ultimately, Claude decides to go to Vietnam. With themes of alienation and civil disobedience, Hair illustrates the ’60s generation’s search for meaning through various “be-ins,” “love-ins” and protests.

Actors’ of all ethnicities strongly encouraged to attend. We are a passionate company and this show is more important today than ever! We are seeking open minded talent who are willing to take some chances with us as we tackle some challenging themes. (* There is no nudity required for this production.) * 18 + strongly encouraged.
