|Final performances of the musical HAIR to be held this week|
Join this Crimson Creek Players this week as they present the final week of the American tribal love-rock musical, HAIR, Tuesday, Aug. 11, through Saturday, Aug. 15.
Just in time to usher in the dawning of a new age in America, Crimson Creek invokes this classic rock musical and explodes it on to a new generation. A celebration of life, a love letter to freedom, and a passionate cry for hope and change, HAIR features some of the greatest songs ever written for the stage, including “Aquarius,” “Good Morning Starshine,” and “Let the Sun Shine In.”
HAIR: The American Tribal Rock Love Musical, with book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni, and music by Galt MacDermott, is the first rock musical, and is one of the most adventurous, outlandish, and ultimately profound musicals ever.
Join the Tribe, a group of long-haired, politically active hippies, as they gather in this musical “be-in," unrestricted as it is by all the conventions of typical Broadway musicals. As the first and most successful of the rock musicals, HAIR possesses timelessness and a meaning that outlives the era of “flower power,” and provokes you to take part in this celebration of life.
HAIR is directed by Chris Berg (Great American Trailer Park Musical, Lucky Stiff) and musical director Matt Strand (Chicago, Cabaret, Sweeney Todd). Original choreography crafted by Laura Dvorak-Berry (North Dakota Ballet Company, Minnesota Dance Ensemble), and the production is produced by Benjamin Klipfel (Sweeney Todd, Cabaret, Sweet Charity, Great American Trailer Park Musical).
Tickets are $18/15 and are available in advance at 777-4090 (group discounts for parties of 10 or more).
This production contains harsh and vulgar language, simulated drug use, and brief rear nudity. HAIR is intended for mature audiences. Walk-up discounts are available for parties who dress in “60's style hippie clothing.” HAIR is sponsored, in part, by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation Donor Advised Fund and the Greater Grand Forks Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.
