Skylight Music Theatre
While most actors think of auditions as fearful and nerve-wracking events, these cast members seem to be experiencing an abundance of humorous and heartwarming epiphanies as they audition for a fictional Broadway show called I Hear America Singing. Skylight is very excited to be collaborating with composer and Milwaukee native Daron Hagen on a musical revue created just for Skylight. Audiences will hear a variety of great American musical theatre numbers, art songs and opera excerpts, as Skylight entertains like no one else can!

Hair in Broadway HAIR
Skylight Music Theatre
It's the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, and Skylight couldn't be more excited to close this historic season with Hair. This Tony Award-winning musical captures the spirit of the 60s hippie movement through the interactions of "the tribe". Ground-breaking in many ways, from its rock and roll score to its multi-racial cast, Hair took on such themes as pacifism, race, drug use and yes, nudity. This show contains mature themes and brief nudity. For those reasons we do not recommend this show for anyone younger than high school age.
