Wilson High School’s student performers are bringing an ambitious musical to the stage in the next two weeks: Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical.
The musical’s promoters think the Wilson performers are uniquely suited to tell this story. They tell us:
As many of you might remember, Hair gleefully dives into issues of sexual freedom, sexual identity, racism, and war. You probably remember some of its songs: “Aquarius,” “Hair,” “Easy to Be Hard,” and “Good Morning Starshine,” along with the beauty and innocence of the 60’s ethos of hope, peace and change. Those messages will resonate differently now, as new kinds of racial tension, sexual tension, and war continue to plague us.
High School students don’t usually perform Hair, and some of the material may not be suitable for younger kids, but the Wilson students are uniquely equipped to take this on: They are diverse in a multitude of ways, incredibly talented, and deeply thoughtful about these issues. Don’t miss the beautiful spectacle of them embracing this material and this music!
