We are creating a family musical adaptation of Casey Elisha's debut children's book, Love Thy Fro!

School photo day is tomorrow and Kemi has a crisis - her hair isn't right. After many failed attempts to try and tame it, Kemi goes on an unexpected journey to the 1970s where she meets a familiar face and discovers there is something deeply special about taking pride in her big, beautiful afro hair. But will she get it right in time for photo day?

An adaptation of Casey Elisha's debut children's book, Love Thy Fro: The Musical teaches there is much pride to be had in loving the skin you're in.

Love Thy Fro: The Musical will run over 4 nights in October 2018 at Theatre Peckham as part of Black History Month in the UK. Your support will help us to bring this musical to life and cover all associated costs including actor fees, production, costume, staging etc.
