A Walk in the Woods

Revealing conversations, profound frustration and deepening understanding – two superpower arms negotiators, a Russian and American, meet in the woods of Geneva to negotiate nuclear disarmament. In A Walk in the Woods, the elemental differences in two systems of government will continue to exacerbate as long as the real power rests in the hands of those burdened by the bitterness of the past.
HAIR: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical
Book and Lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni, Music by Galt MacDermot
Directed by Brian Clowdus, Music Directed by Seth Davis, Choreographed by Bubba Carr
Thursday, July 25 – Sunday, August 11 (Thursday – Sunday at 8:30 p.m.)
Serenbe is letting down its Hair this summer with the original rock musical that redefined American Theatre and awakened a generation. Join hands, pick a wild flower and commune with The Tribe, a group of politically active, long-haired hippies of the “Age of Aquarius” as they protest and fight against the Vietnam War. Seeking to find a new way, they begin by recreating themselves as they yearn to change the world.
In its third season, “A Season of Dreams,” set within the majestic green spaces of Serenbe, Alice in Wonderland left children of all ages inspired with imagination and wonder. Next in line, A Midsummer Night’s Dream set under the stars proved the then three year old theatre could in fact dream bigger as the show was a huge success, drawing in larger crowds than ever before. Finally, the Regional World Premiere of the soulful musical Time Between Us concluded the season by leaving audiences engaged and introducing new work to the Atlanta stage. Serenbe Playhouse is proud to once again be named 2012’s “Best Place to See a Play” by Lifestyle Magazine and “Best of Atlanta: Emerging “Green” Room” by Atlanta Magazine.
