Hair at the Ephrata Performing Arts Center

Ephrata Performing Arts Center | Ephrata, false 17522

April 28-May 13
A product of the hippie counterculture and sexual revolution of the 1960s, the rock musical Hair tells the story of the "tribe," a group of politically active, long- haired hippies of the "Age of Aquarius" living a bohemian life in New York City and fighting against conscription into the Vietnam War. Claude, his good friend Berger, their roommate Sheila, and their friends struggle to balance their young lives, loves, and the sexual revolution with their rebellion against the war and their conservative parents and society. Several of its songs became anthems of the anti-Vietnam War peace movement as America searched for answers in a sea of purple haze. The American musical would never be the same.
