A Staged-Reading Concert Benefitting Cygnet's Artist Advocate Program.

Don't be square! Join us for a fabulous evening of fun and music, all while supporting our outta-sight Cygnet Theatre Artists. Silent Auction and Sponsorship opportunities available. 60's era costumes are encouraged!

Coming to the Cygnet for two nights only is the musical that introduced rock 'n' roll to the theatrical stage. Hair examines a group of 60s-era youth struggling for generational and personal identity, dealing with the Vietnam War, and exploring drugs and the sexual revolution.
