Casting Call Details:
AUDITIONS FOR HAIR the American Tribal Love-Rock Musical

Palace Theater, Waterbury, Connecticut

The Hair tribe consists of 20-25 male and female performers, minimum age 18 at the time of audition (photographic identification will be required). No maximum age but must be believable as characters aged 18 to 24. A wide ethnic diversity is strongly desired for this production (several specific roles require performers of color, but alternative casting is possible). While theatrical experience is helpful, it is not mandatory. (The original Broadway cast had a lot of first-timers).

Desired qualities:

* a strong singing voice

* ability to move well on stage: Hair is not a “dance” show but it is very physical and requires a lot of movement.

* an energetic and outgoing personality

* open minded approach to performance

* collaborative performance ethic

Lead Roles

Claude √ (male, tenor) A nice, young hippie who loves his hair, destined for the draft, and Berger’s best friend.

Berger √ (male, tenor) The leader of the tribe, an anarchist, loves his pot, and Claude’s best friend.

Woof √ (male, high baritone/tenor (a good falsetto is desired) Energetic, gay or bi (preference unclear), fun-loving, far-out, freaky.

Sheila √ (female, mezzo/belt) A street-smart student and social activist, but totally in love with Berger.

Jeannie √ (female, alto) Wise, sweet, creative, pregnant, a follower, but she also acts as the “greek chorus” of the tribe.

Chrissy √ (female, mezzo) A true flower child and street urchin who misses her former lover.

Dionne √ (black female, Motown belt) Sassy African-American girl, should be able to handle a strong Dianna Ross impersonation.
