Project Description



Opening on 14 May in 2003, David Atkins’ production of Hair the Musical was one of the first to grace the newly renovated HMT stage and dates back to some of the earliest signatures on our backstage Cast Wall.

First premiering off-Broadway in 1967 and telling the story of the “tribe”, a group of politically active hippies fighting against conscription into the Vietnam War, Hair broke new ground thanks to its profanity, irreverence, audience interaction, and of course its now infamous nude scene.

This Australian revival production was choreographed by Jason Coleman and starred local musical theatre stars Matt Hetherington and Tamsin Carroll, played 37 performances.
