Theater 55 will perform outdoor concert version of ‘Hair’

Theatre 55, a theater company that casts actors ages 55-plus, is bringing back a concert version of the show that launched the group three years ago.

The age of Aquarius dawns again with music from the 1968 rock musical “Hair” at Caponi Art Park Amphitheater in Eagan on July 16-18 and 23-25. Theatre 55, which was formed by former SteppingStone Theatre artistic director Richard Hitchler, is calling the show its “coming out of COVID event.”

Audience members will get lyric sheets so they can let the sunshine in and should bring chairs or blankets for seating, along with drinks and snacks. “Famous Caponi popcorn” will be available for purchase, according to Theatre 55. The also-famous Art Cars will be on display Aug. 18.

Tickets are $8 for individuals, with carpool and vanpool rates available. For tickets and info: theatre55.org.
