Witness the age of aquarius come to life in this liberating rock musical.
Defy your expectations with this contemporary take on the classic hair raising musical. Follow the rule breakers, yearning for change in the world of the late 60’s. Fighting for freedom, human rights, the environment and peace in times of war, HAIR puts a mirror to today’s society and asks the question, how far have we really come?
Starring four time Logie winner Hugh Sheridan (Packed to the Rafters) and powerhouse vocalist Paulini (The Bodyguard), this brand new Australian production
features all the hits from the GRAMMY® Award winning score including ‘Aquarius’, ‘Let the Sunshine In’, ‘Good Morning, Starshine’ and ‘I Got Life’.
Produced by David M. Hawkins (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), this infectious rock musical is brought vividly to life this spring.
Cast & Creatives
"This remake shows why this classic musical made such an impression on people’s thinking. If you’ve been feeling a bit high on stress and low on smiles, do go and see it." Barbara Booth, Arts Hub
"As conservatism once again dominates our global politics Hair’s themes of non-conformity, community and global responsibility are refreshingly welcome. The audience standing ovation confirmed I wasn’t the only one wanting to let the sunshine in." Rosalind Appleby, Seesaw Mag
"The final scene left me with tears flowing down my cheeks, the final refrain of the chorus echoing in my ears, and surrounded by an audience giving a standing ovation." Graeme Watson, Out in Perth
