The Ephrata Performing Arts Center is pleased to announce EPAC on the Edge, a new cooperative staged reading series that will continue the theater’s mission of producing thought-provoking material while embracing the community.
A product of the hippie counterculture and sexual revolution of the 1960s, the rock musical 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. Several of its songs became anthems of the anti-Vietnam War peace movement as America searched for answers in a sea of purple haze. The American musical would never be the same. Hair was the show that defined a generation as it captured the youthful anti-establishment ethos of the late 60s and early 70s. Controversial and edgy, Hair has lost none of its bite as it entertains the mind as well as the spirit.

We are preparing another season of great theater for you. In each of next year's shows, the leading character goes on a life-changing journey. Some of the journeys lead to love and joy. Some lead to a greater appreciation for our common humanity. As in real life, some do not end happily. Each of these plays and musicals tells a compelling story about how the choices we make in life help us discover who we really are. Let's explore all that we can.
