Photo Flash: First Look At Peregrine Theatre Ensemble's HAIR in Provincetown

HAIR The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical is a Broadway cult classic with book and lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado and music by Galt MacDermot. This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the original 1968 production opening on Broadway. A product of the hippie counterculture and sexual revolution of the late 1960s, several of its songs became anthems of the anti-Vietnam War peace movement and chart topping hits. HAIR tells the story of the "tribe", a group of politically active, long-haired hippies of the "Age of Aquarius" living a bohemian life and fighting against being drafted into the Vietnam War. Claude, his good friend Berger, their roommate Sheila and friends struggle to balance their young lives, loves, and the sexual revolution with their rebellion against the war, their parents and society. Ultimately, Claude must decide whether to resist the draft as his friends have done, or to succumb to the pressures of his parents and members of society to serve in Vietnam, compromising his pacifist principles and risking his life.

At the helm of Peregrine Theatre Ensemble's administration team is Boston Conservatory alum and Executive Director, Adam Berry. Best known as one of the executive producers and stars of the hit TV show KINDRED SPIRITS on TLC and Destination America and formerly of Ghost Hunters on the SYFY CHANNEL. When he isn't helping families with their unexplained paranormal experiences he is running a non-profit theater company with his husband and artistic director of Peregrine, Ben Berry in Provincetown, MA.

"The musical HAIR is absolutely relevant today and its message is extremely powerful. Young men and women of America standing up for diversity, protesting, creating change and fighting for what they believe is right is as much in the forefront of today's news as it was during the 1960s. We are overwhelmingly excited to reintroduce this material to our audiences in our current social and political climate while showcasing such an iconic musical score" -Adam Berry
