Let the sunshine in, with UNCG School of Theatre “Hair”

For many of the nearly 100 theatre students involved in the production, “Hair” has offered ample opportunities for self-expression and free-form creativity, things as definitively sixties as the musical itself.

“The show itself is very loose and free,” said Fey Jones, undergraduate theatre major and assistant costume designer. “A lot of our work has been impromptu, improvised. There’s always something new happening, and things are ever-evolving. It gives me more artistic freedom and allows me to create in the moment like I like to do.”

Performances will run Sept. 25-30. For showtimes and tickets visit vpa.uncg.edu or call the Triad Stage Box Office at 336-272-0160.

Don’t forget that UNCG Theatre offers UNCG faculty/staff the opportunity to attend all its shows this season for $45. This is $50 off the price they would pay if they bought individual tickets to all the shows. This offer applies for your partner/significant other as well, so buy a pair. Details are here.
