HAIR tells the story of the 'tribe', a group of politically active, long-haired hippies of the "Age of Aquarius" living a bohemian life in New York City and fighting against conscription into the Vietnam War. Claude, his good friend Berger, their roommate Sheila and their friends struggle to balance their young lives, loves and the sexual revolution with their rebellion against the war and their conservative parents and society. Ultimately, Claude must decide whether to resist the draft as his friends have done, or succumb to the pressures of his parents (and conservative America) to serve in Vietnam, compromising his pacifistic principles and risking his life.

Based on an original concept album written by Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics by Tim Rice, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR chronicles the last days in the life of Jesus Christ through the eyes of Judas Iscariot, his closest disciple - and ultimately, the man who would betray him.
From the arrival of Jesus in Jerusalem through to his arrest and crucifixion, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR explores the interpersonal and political struggle of Christ in an unflinching and visceral contemporary interpretation of the most famous story of all time.
Directed by Seamus Dunn, with Musical Direction from Kimberley Wood, and featuring choreography by Holly Diepraam and Jessica Langtry.
