OPENING 15 APRIL 2019 AT THE NEW THEATRE CARDIFF

After winning a WhatsOnStage award in 2018, this celebrated production will now embark on a colourful journey of peace and love to Cardiff as part of a UK tour after a London season.

Welcome to the ‘Age of Aquarius’. It’s 1967 and HAIR’s hippie ‘tribe’ youngsters in the East Village of New York are yearning to change the world, questioning authority and the American flag. Wild, colourful, sexually liberated and free, they are united in protest and song, under the shadow of the Vietnam War.

Hair, which is adored for its Grammy award-winning score featuring iconic hits such as ‘Aquarius’, ‘Let the Sun Shine In’, ‘I Got Life’ and ‘Good Morning Starshine’ is written by Gerome Ragni (book and lyrics), James Rado (book and lyrics) and Galt MacDermot (music).

The 50th anniversary production has been cast by the previous head of BBC casting Jane Deitch and is directed by Jonathan O’Boyle (Pippin, Rain Man, Aspects Of Love), who is reunited with the brilliant creative team from Hope Mill Theatre: Gareth Bretherton (Musical Director), William Whelton (Choreographer), Maeve Black (Designer), Ben M Rogers (Lighting Designer), Calum Robinson (Sound Designer), Max Perryment (Soundscape Designer) and producers Katy Lipson for Aria Entertainment, Joseph Houston & William Whelton for Hope Mill Theatre and Ollie Rosenblatt for Senbla.

Monday 15 – Saturday 20th April – Evenings 7.30pm, Thursday & Saturday 2.30 + 7.30pm

Tickets: £17-£40 : Box office 02920 87 88 89 or book online www.newtheatrecardiff.co.uk
