10/17/20 7:30PM Theatre & Dance Production: Hair

Saturday, October 17, 2020
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
Ted Paul Theatre, Earley Center for Performing Arts

After a three week pause, Minnesota State University, Mankato’s Department of Theatre & Dance will continue the 2020-2021 season with Hair on October 14.
Though first produced off-Broadway in 1967, the theme of social justice is as relevant today as it was when Hair first opened. Third-year MFA Directing candidate David Loudermilk selected Hair as his thesis project as a way to encourage the participants and audience to sit with their discomfort and question ourselves about why we might negatively view those who are unlike us.
The Theatre and Dance season opened on September 16 for one performance of Silent Sky, before University administration and Department leadership determined that a temporary season suspension was necessary to slow the spread of COVID-19. After multiple discussions and a poll distributed to all students in the Department, the decision was made to resume the season after the three week pause. The remainder of the season will be presented on a condensed schedule, and the goal is to close the Mainstage season with Mamma Mia! in April 2021.
Hair runs Oct. 14-17 and Oct. 21-24 at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 17, 18, 24 and 25, at 2:00 p.m. in the Ted Paul Theatre at the Earley Center for Performing Arts, Minnesota State University, Mankato.
Tickets are $24 regular, $21 for seniors ages 65 and older, children under 16 and groups of 15 or more; and $16 for MSU students.
The Box Office is open 4-6 p.m. weekdays in the lobby of the Performing Arts Center, or buy single tickets online at MSUTheatre.com. The Box Office line is 507-389-6661.


Minnesota State University, Mankato and the Department of Theatre and Dance are committed to taking any steps necessary to protect the health and safety of our faculty, staff, students and community.

All patrons and other visitors are required to complete the COVID-19 self screening tool before coming to campus, and provide proof of completing the screening with a printed or electronic verification.

Due to State of Minnesota regulations, our theatres will also be limited to 25% seating capacity. Because of this, we will be implementing several temporary changes to our ticketing and seating policies for the safety of all our patrons, workers and performers.

  • Ticket sales for all performances will be limited to general admission only.

  • All tickets must be purchased in advance (online, phone or in-person)—no walk-up tickets sales will be available before the show.

  • There is a strict limit of 6 seats per individual order.

  • A purchased ticket guarantees you admission into the performance, but not a specific seat. Upon arrival to the theatre, you and your party will be assigned seats by MSUTheatre personnel.

  • Our ticket exchange policy is still in effect, but we cannot guarantee alternate seating due to the capacity limitations.

  • Wheelchair accessible seating is still available.
  • Face masks are required for all patrons.
