The tribe struggles to balance their young lives, loves and the sexual revolution with their pacifist rebellion against the war and the conservative impulses of their parents and society.  Through rock songs like “Aquarius,” “I Believe in Love” and “Hair,”  rise up and let the light in, too!

Evening rehearsals are tentatively scheduled to begin Monday, May 2,1 with performances June 22-24 and June 28-July 1.
