Ateneo Blue Repertory holds auditions for Hair

Ateneo Blue Repertory is holding open auditions for its February 2011 production of the pioneering Broadway rock musical “Hair.” The auditions will be on November 22-23 (music auditions), 4:30 to 10 p.m.; and November 24, 26 and 28 (dance auditions, callbacks and workshops), all at the Ateneo de Manila University.

Auditionees must prepare a song segment from “Hair” and any song (8 bars) from a different musical. Dance attire is required for the dance auditions.

The production will run Feb. 9-12 and Feb. 16-19, 2011, at the Rizal Mini-Theater, Ateneo de Manila University.

For audition materials, please check the official page on Facebook (BlueRepertory's “Hair”). Follow announcements on Twitter ( and Tumblr ( Contact Tomik Tendero at 0922-8363374 for more information.

With book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni, and music by Galt MacDermot, “Hair” was a groundbreaking musical both in its music (rock) and setting (the '60s hippie era, the “flower power” generation of the Vietnam War, sexual liberation and bohemianism). “Hair's” original cast album won a Grammy Award for Best Score from an Original Cast Show Album. Meanwhile, the 2009 revival on Broadway bagged a Tony Award, a Drama Desk Award and a Drama League Award for Outstanding Revival of a Musical.

Ateneo Blue Repertory's “Hair” will be theater actor Jake Macapagal’s directorial debut after performing in the Germany and UK runs of “Miss Saigon,” Repertory Philippines’ “The Fantasticks,” Stages’ “West Side Story” and Atlantis Productions' “A Little Night Music.” The creative team includes musical director Laura Cabochan (Tanghalang Ateneo’s “Walang Sugat”), choreographer Adrydeo Dela Cruz (Dulaang UP’s “Orosman at Zafira”) and stage designer Monica Sebial (Ateneo Blue Repertory’s “Freakshow”).
