A brand new Australian production of the much-loved and revolutionary rock musical, Hair will come alive at the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre. Hair celebrates sixties counterculture in all its barefoot, long-haired, radical glory with an infectious, energetic rock beat. The show features a Grammy Award-winning score including the hit songs ‘Aquarius’, ‘Good Morning Starshine’, ‘Hair’, ‘I Got Life’ and ‘Let The Sun Shine In’. Starring four-time Logie winner Hugh Sheridan and powerhouse vocalist Paulini, Hair is situated in the sixties, a turbulent, anarchic and exciting time in which people were losing faith in the establishment, austerity measures and the Vietnam War. Hippie counter culture, experimentation and free-love eschewed conformity and the world collectively let their Hair down. Today, amidst global turmoil, issues like human rights, the environment, freedom of religion, race and gender equality continue to dominate dinner party and water cooler discussions across the country – and now, on social media. Hair’s themes of identity, community, global responsibility and peace continue to resonate, getting to the heart of what it means to be a young person in a changing world.
