Its themes of peace, openmindedness, love, freedom and understanding are as pertinent now as they were at the time ofthe show's inception. Beyond the global themes, this musical is deeply personal. Although not a child of the sixties, I had the privilege of being raised by forward-thinking parents who were, dare I say, Hippies. I was exposed to the music at an early age and have fond memories of singing all the songs (even the naughty ones) around the house. It is an honor to have the opportunity to bring this show to life on the Ann Arbor Civic Theatre stage. You are in for a treat: The cast's talent and energy is infectious and the band has definitely "got life:' This production would not have been possible without the collaboration of all the individuals who make community theater the truly unique experience it is. An incredibly dedicated production team threw themselves into this project with abandon and I hope you can feel our collective passion. I invite you all to tune in, turn on and join us for the Be-In.
