Hair

 Aug 11 - Sep 1  
  'Hair" Aug 11 - Sep 1 Book and Lyrics by Gerome Ragni & James Rado, Music by Galt MacDermot Western Stage MAINSTAGE
 
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the show that changed everything
 
Hair is more than just a musical: it is a social and cultural phenomenon, a jubilant assertion of life and freedom and a cry of protest.  The show was born out of protest, but its spirit is one of affirmation.  Hair brought counter-cultural values to a mass audience and helped loosen up a whole generation.

"Triassic Park the Musical"
​Aug 16 - Sep 2
"Triassic Park the Musical", by Bryce Norbitz, Marshall Pailet, & Steve Wargo. Directed by Kate Faber. Paper Wing Gallerie Stage, for mature audience
 
Religion, identity, sex...and raptors! Triassic Parq is a raucous retelling of that famous dinosaur-themed film, this time seen from the dinos' point of view. Chaos is unleashed upon the not-so-prehistoric world when one dinosaur in a clan of females spontaneously turns male. The mutation spawns a chain reaction of identity crises, forcing the dinosaurs to question the very facts of life they've always held as truth. An uproariously funny musical meditation on faith, science, and love.
