Hair

Date: 13 Sep 2019

A theatrical touchstone from the Age of Aquarius, Hair broke new ground with its depiction of the counter culture of the 1960s. 

Hair tells the story of the “tribe”, a group of politically active hippies living in New York City and fighting against the draft and the Vietnam War.

Claude, his good friend Berger, their roommate Sheila and their friends struggle to balance their young lives, loves, and the sexual revolution with their rebellion against the war and their parents and society. Ultimately, Claude must decide whether to resist the draft, as his friends have done, or to succumb to the pressures of his parents to serve in Vietnam.

Starring Hugh Sheridan and powerhouse vocalist Paulini, 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.

Cameron Menzies directs.
