Casting Performers for Production of "Hair"

Winston-Salem, NC, United States
ID: 262327Exp: 6/9/2024

The company is holding auditions for "Hair" Show and looking for actors, please see the details below. ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE CONSIDERED. About the project: It’s 1967: the Vietnam War (American War as it is known in Vietnam) is raging and the Age of Aquarius is dawning. Claude, his best friend Berger, their roommate Sheila, and their tribe of friends struggle to balance the demands of the harsh and violent world with their dream for a more beautiful and peaceful world. When Claude receives his draft notice, he must decide whether to join his friends in resisting the draft, or bow to the pressures of society and his conservative parents, thereby sacrificing his ideals and, possibly, his life. 'Hair' was a sensation when it premiered in 1967, as it brought the counterculture movement into the theatre and the national spotlight. The issues the show brings up - alienation, civil disobedience, youthful defiance - continue to timelessly resonate today." Additional info: Please prepare a 18-32 bar cut of a pop/rock song, preferably from the 60’s/70’s or a musical theater selection in the style of the show. Sides will be provided during the audition for cold reads. Rehearsal Dates: July 1- Aug 7 Performance dates: Aug 8, 2024 - Aug 18, 2024 Please apply if interested.
