PLATTEVILLE, Wis. – The University of Wisconsin-Platteville’s Center for the Arts will present “Hair” on Thursday, April 17 in the Richard and Helen Brodbeck Concert Hall at 7 p.m.

Featuring a multi-cultural cast, “Hair” includes a long list of chart-topping hits such as “Aquarius,” “Good Morning Starshine” and “Easy To Be Hard.” The performance finishes with a post-show celebration that allows audience members to dance in the aisles and on stage with the performers to the anthem “Let the Sun Shine In.”

The New York Times calls the musical “The ultimate American rock musical!”

Broadway World states that the musical is “Phenomenal. I don’t think I’ve left a theater with this much joy.”
