A contemporary rock musical, "bare" is, at its heart, an operatic love story. With contemporary themes of bullying, personal identity, drugs & alcohol, and sexuality, it follows a group of high school seniors at a Catholic boarding school. As they struggle to come to terms with who they are, and who the world thinks they should be, they seek answers from their church, their friends, and ultimately, from within themselves. Its rich, vibrant score draws on many styles of contemporary music. - TRW
..."bare" rings with the sounds of youthful repression and revolt. With a unique sung-through pop score, heart-pounding lyrics, and a cast of bright young characters, "bare" is a provocative, fresh, and utterly honest look at the dangers of baring your soul, and the consequences of continuing to hide. - Stage Agent
"Hartmere has crafted a witty and sharp script to go along with Intrabartolo's energetic rock score." - TheaterMania
"(BARE) can very easily hold its own against 'RENT' and 'Spring Awakening'. While it doesn't share the commercial success and notoriety, it definitely soars regarding storyline, music, universal themes and relatable characters. It takes a snapshot of the trials and tribulations of adolescent life." - Todd Santa Maria, Director of "BARE"

Not intended for young audiences - minimum suggested age 16.
Note for parents: Younger audiences members are welcome. Please know that "BARE" includes sensuous dancing, coarse humor, and depictions of alcohol & drug use. With the growing number of opiate deaths in Connecticut, we feel these are important topics for community discussion. Please decide if you are ready to discuss these topics with your student.
