IMPORTANT:  On stage nudity will be required of all characters.  

The "tribe" members are in their late teens, all of whom exude youth,
are extremely charismatic, energetic and sexy, incorporating a wide
range of body types.  We are searching for male and female singer/actors
of all ethnicities who move well and have an excellent musical range
that mixes Rock, 60s psychedelic protest and Broadway boldness.

The seven principle characters are:

Claude - a charismatic leader that women adore, boys emulate and men
will follow into the breach.  A man of conscience who struggles with the
conflict of what his heart tells him is right and what the authorities
around him lead him to believe.
Berger - more of an unrestrained animal.  He knows what is right and
sticks to it no matter the consequence.  
Sheila - the most intelligent of the tribe.  Wants to change society
through peaceful protest.
Jeanie - A follower, not a leader.  Incredibly sweet, understands Claude
better than anyone.  Pregnant - and taking drugs.
Woof - May not want to admit it but he is gay.
Hud - Speaks his mind and hopes you can keep up with him.  Black and
proud of it.
Dionne - Black and sassy and lots of fun.

Plus 12 actors who play a multitude of characters.

Send submissions ASAP and no later than April 22, 2005 to Chris Scholey,
CanStage, 26 Berkeley Street, Toronto, Ontario, M5A 2W3.  Submit a hard
copy resume/photo only - no phone calls or emails - thanks.  We invite
resumes from artists of diverse cultures and ethnicities.  Please
indicate submission is for Hair.  Those selected for an audition will be
asked to prepare 1 two-minute monologue and 1 high energy pop/rock song
evocative of the 60s (can be from musical theatre).
