Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department alum Mallory Maedke ’14, a graduate of the Columbia College Theatre Department’s BFA Program in Musical Theatre Performance, is in the cast of Hair, opening August 3 and running through September 17 at the Mercury Theatre in Chicago. In this classic 1960s rock musical about a tribe of young hippies celebrating love, life, and freedom, Maedke is a member of the ensemble, and also understudies the lead female role of Sheila.
The production marks the 50th anniversary of Hair‘s Off-Broadway premiere in 1967. A celebration of life, a love letter to freedom, and a passionate cry for hope and change, Hair defined one generation and continues to inspire today.
