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 and William Whelton for Hope Mill TheatreOllie Rosenblatt for Senbla, and associate producer Guy James.

The production will be cast by the previous BBC Head of Casting Jane Deitch, and will be announced in due course.
