Orpheus plans auditions for 'Hair'

Orpheus Theatre will hold auditions for all roles in its fall production of “Hair” at 7 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday at St. Mary’s Parish Center on the corner of Walnut and Elm streets in Oneonta.

The “American Tribal Love-Rock Musical,” with book and lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado, and music by Galt MacDermot, is set in an East Village park in 1967 New York City.

Classic hits from the show include “Let the Sun Shine In,” “Age of Aquarius” and “Good Morning Starshine.”
