Hair will be presented Aug. 1-2 at 8 PM and Aug. 3 at 7:30 PM. Casting will be announced at a later date.

Hair, according to the Bowl, "defined the 'rock musical,' exuberantly celebrating the hippie counterculture, anti-war movement and sexual revolution of the 1960s with a rainbow score of hits" – including “Aquarius,” “Good Morning Starshine” and “Easy to be Hard."
