Laugh-out-loud comedy for Hairies aged 6-12 years and their families.
He’s a follicle, and one in a million.
Hairnry arrives at Hairy Mission Control with big dreams - to be Head Hair. He’s done his time being a toe hair, a knee hair, even a solitary mole hair! But is he ready to move to the top job?
His three follicle friends are on hand to put him through his paces and make sure he’s ready to be a Super-Hairo.
Hair is amazing. It can be styled, waxed, fashioned, jheri-curled, dreadlocked and shorn! Hair can be striking, funny, scary, surprising, gorgeous and greasy! Long, short, curly, straight, thick, thin - it’s everywhere.
Will they survive a shaving by the demon Barbers of De-Ville? Will they be able to defeat Major General Nit and his nitwit army from taking over the world? Perhaps… with the help of their slippery new invention, the Large Hedrin Collider?
Hairy is the first show created especially for young people by Spymonkey, the UK’s most hair-larious comedy theatre company. There will be screams of laughter. Slippery shampoo. Falling over. Trying to stand up again. Falling over some more. And some great songs too.
A show with few words and bold visual comedy, let loose and join in the mayhem. One thing is for sure: It’s going to get HAIRY!
