"HAiR" will be a prop-heavy production. Many unusual things need to be found and some need to be manufactured. Some examples are:
--interesting metallic junk
--5' papier mache head of President Johnson
--electric guitar that can be smashed every night
--nightmare horse head (to be worn)
--Gorilla head (to be worn)
--crank up Victrola
--large origami doves
--2 dozen protest signs
--toy ray guns (old style)
...sounds like fun, huh?
While the Broadway production had over one hundred cues for one scene in the play, we won't get QUITE so crazy---but this is the perfect opportunity to execute a crucial and complex technical job which is actually PERFORMING in the tech booth.
my body is walking in space
my soul is in orbit
with God face to face
tripping from pottsville to starline
tripping from starline to moonville
on a rocket to the fourth dimension
total self-awareness the intention
my mind is as clear as country air
I feel my flesh all colors mesh
lyrics by Ragni and Rado © 1966, 1969
