The Student Musical Theater (SMT) is an organization dedicated to producing quality, student-run musicals for the Carleton community. This term's production of the well-known musical, Hair, will take place in the Weitz Theater, which is an exciting new step for the members of SMT, according to the musical's co-director, Ellie Durling (2017). Past SMT productions have consistently been held in the Little Nourse Theater, but Durling believes that the spacial freedom found in the larger Weitz Theater will help turn the production into a full theatrical experience for both the audience and the actors. Hair is scheduled to premiere at the Weitz Center for Creativity during 9th week of winter term.
