HAIR – the Musical, touring the UK on the 50th anniversary of its sensational London opening, comes to Plymouth from  Monday 22nd to Saturday 27th April.

Thet Hope Mill Theatre production is all ready to welcome the Age of Aquarius again. It’s 1967 and the hippie tribe  youngsters in the East Village of New York are yearning to change the world, questioning authority and ready to burn the American flag. Wild, colourful, sexually liberated and free, they are united in protest and song, under the shadow of the Vietnam War.

The score includes iconic hits such as Aquarius, Let the Sun Shine In, I Got Life, Easy to be Hard and Good Morning Starshine, waa written by Gerome Ragni, James Rado and Galt MacDermot.

The  anniversary production is directed by Jonathan O’Boyle  with MD Gareth Bretherton, choreographer William Whelton, designer Maeve Black.
