All Alumni Theater Night to Feature 'Hair' and VIP Reception, February 22, 2014, at Livingston Student Center
Join the Livingston Alumni Association and our co-sponsors for the Rutgers All-Alumni Theater Night, Saturday, February 22, 2014, at the Livingston Theatre Company’s production of “Hair.”
The event includes a VIP dessert reception at 6 p.m., followed by the musical “Hair” at 8 p.m., at the Livingston Student Center, 84 Joyce Kilmer Avenue, Piscataway, New Jersey.
Hair tells the story of the "tribe," a group of politically active, long-haired hippies of the "Age of Aquarius" living a bohemian life in New York City and fighting against conscription into the Vietnam War. Claude, his good friend Berger, their roommate Sheila and their friends struggle to balance their young lives, loves and the sexual revolution with their rebellion against the war and their conservative parents and society. Ultimately, Claude must decide whether to resist the draft as his friends have done, or to succumb to the pressures of his parents (and conservative America) to serve in Vietnam, compromising his pacifistic principles and risking his life.
The reception will include a primer about the show and backstage information about the process from members of the production team, as well as a prize raffle. Then right before the curtain goes up all reception attendees will be escorted to the reserved VIP seating in the best section of the theater.
Show tickets, including the reception, are $12 each. Alumni are welcome to bring guests, but the free reception is limited to 100 people.
In order to attend, order your tickets through the LTC online box office AND then RSVP for the reception. All the information is online at http://rutgerstheaternight.org/.
