Hair the Musical Cast on Stage

Following the critically-acclaimed 50th anniversary production of Hair – The Musical at Hope Mill Theatre and sell-out transfer to The Vaults, London, the celebrated production will now embark on a nationwide tour.

And it will come to the New Theatre Oxford from June 26 – 29, 2019.

This award-winning production (2018 WhatsOnStage Award – Best Off-West End Production) stars Dancing on Ice Winner Jake Quickenden, Daisy Wood-Davis (Hollyoaks/ Dreamboats & Petticoats) and Marcus Collins (X-Factor Finalist/ Kinky Boots).

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 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) and producers Katy Lipson for Aria Entertainment, Joseph Houston & William Whelton for Hope Mill Theatre, Ollie Rosenblatt for Senbla, and associate producer Guy James.

Review: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Paying audiences deserve something more to look at.
