The lyrics say it all…
Gimme a head with hair/ Long, beautiful hair/ Shining, gleaming/ Streaming, flaxen, waxen/ Give me down to there hair/ Shoulder length or longer/ Here, baby, there, mama/ Everywhere, daddy, daddy/ Hair – hair, hair, hair, hair, hair/ Grow it, show it/ Long as I can grow it/ My hair…
Travel back in time to an era when you could be unwashed, unbrushed, unkempt, and all was still well with the world!
Bangalow Theatre Company is set to stage Hair the ‘American tribal love-rock musical’.
Hair is a window into the ’60s counterculture of young hippies fighting the establishment, dodging the drafts, getting high, living and loving in New York City.
The Bangalow Theatre Company production of Hair features a strong local cast of 16 actors, and will be in the capable hands of award-winning actor and director Kate Foster who directed Calamity Jane and Little Shop of Horrors and was assistant director of Rent.
In a departure from its usual home in Bangalow, this production will be staged at Byron Theatre from Thursday 23 March to 1 April to give audiences a more up close and personal theatre experience.
Hair… I want it long, straight, curly, fuzzy/ Snaggy, shaggy, ratsy, matsy/ Oily, greasy, fleecy/ Shining, gleaming, streaming/ Flaxen, waxen/ Knotted, polka-dotted/ Twisted, beaded, braided/ Powdered, flowered, and confettied/ Bangled, tangled, spangled, and spaghettied/ Oh, give me a head with hair…
