      Dean College Presents: Hair, April 6-10, 2016

      The School of the Arts at Dean College will perform Hair, beginning Wednesday, April 6, 2016 through Sunday, April 10, 2016.

      Set in the turbulent era of the Vietnam War and "Free Love," Hair presents the rock music and revolutionary culture that went with it on the stage. This show has a vitality, a timelessness, and a meaning that outlives the late 1960's and early 1970's in America. It has a strong effect on everyone and acts as a bridge between generations and viewpoints. What looks like incredible chaos is actually organized chaos. Phenomenal musical numbers include Aquarius, Good Morning Starshine, I Believe in Love, Hair, I Got Life and What a Piece of Work is Man and Hippie Life. You won’t want to miss our talented students perform this musical performance!

      The Dean College production of Hair will take place in the Main Stage in the Campus Center at Dean College, 99 Main Street, Franklin at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday – Saturday and 2:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets range from $5-$22 and can be purchased online. PARENTAL DISCRETION IS ADVISED.
