This production of Hair was staged to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Musical Theatre program at CCM. The musical was previously staged at CCM in 1991, with direction by Aubrey Berg, choreography by Diane Lala and musical direction by Terry LaBolt. The roles of Claude, Berger and Sheila were played by Sam Samuelson, Pressley Sutherland and Cheryl Sylvester-Avery respectively.
“The CCM production is an eye-popping evening of psychedelia and historic social consciousness in addition to a showcase for the talent we’ve come to expect from this nationally respected program. From the opening chords of “Aquarius” to the tumultuous finale, “Let the Sunshine In,” this production, directed by Aubrey Berg, is a tour de force.
Hair is a great musical, presented by CCM with a depth of feeling and passion. The melodies will stick in your head. The youthful vitality onstage at Corbett Auditorium — demonstrating the treasure that the musical theater program represents — is a force to be reckoned with.”
