Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical is a rock musical with a book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni and music by Galt MacDermot. Several of its songs became anthems of the anti- Vietnam War peace movement. Hair tells the story of the “tribe” which is just a group of politically active, long haired hippies living a bohemian life in New York City and fighting against enrollment into the Vietnam War. New Dorp Students are taking ‘Hair’ to the stage with the same passion as it was on broadway.
‘Hair’ has to be a great broadway production to do in a high school show. It’s challenging, interesting and an all out great show to watch and the cast did an excellent job at performing it. With all the help on this show from students and teachers, This show was a huge success.
The show In my experience was very good. It was very fervent , You could actually see the emotions on the students’ faces as you watch the show. Henry Verner, who played Claude Bukowski really played his part amazingly, as did everyone else. The emotion of the show was the best part of the night. It could really bring tears to your eyes on some parts and laughter on others. The students and teachers really worked hard for this amazing show and it really impinged most of them and even some of the audience that it will be remembered forever. Kudos to everyone in and involved in the show, it really was great.
“I was very Excited about this year’s production of Hair. The music is very challenging and interesting,” stated Music and Choral director of the show, Mr. Pepe. “Our talented musicians and cast have had a hard task of getting this show together, but I really feel that they have risen to the occasion.” With the help of Mr. Pepe and Billy Naismith the music really came together nicely in time for the show which was May 12th and 13th at 7pm.Tweet
