The beloved musical opens Thursday, February 25 and offers an extended run performance, ending with a Sunday matinee on March 7. The show is a vintage affair of fabulous music and dazzling dance, set aboard the S.S. American cruise liner.

CCM celebrates the 40th anniversary of its musical theatre program with the American Tribal Love/Rock Musical, Hair! Amid the counter-culture revolution of the Age of Aquarius, a tribe of hippies and flower children stage a pacifist rebellion against the Vietnam War and the constraints of the Establishment. They are forced to examine their own beliefs and dreams in this provocative, groundbreaking and profoundly moving musical celebration. Premiered in 1968—the same year the CCM musical theater program was established—Hair is currently enjoying a wildly successful Broadway revival.
