About Love Thy Fro: The Musical

School photo day is coming up and Kemi has a crisis - her hair isn't right. Kemi goes on an unexpected journey to the 1970s where she discovers there is something deeply special about taking pride in her big, beautiful afro hair.

The question is - 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.

Illustrated by Aliecee Cummings, and independently published by Casey herself in December 2015, Love Thy Fro the book sold out in just 24 hours, and has received support from the likes of Anthony Joshua, Daniel Kaluuya, Lethal Bizzle and Samantha Mumba.

The musical has been written and produced by Casey alongside Malachi Green, Stephen Adu-Antoh and Ronald Nsubuga, who are all Theatre Peckham alumni. Speaking of the project, Casey said: “I’m so excited to be able to bring 
‘Love Thy Fro: The Musical’ back to the stage! We had such a successful sold out debut last year, it just made sense to do it again. I want families to enjoy seeing the book in a new way as we further explore the message of self-love.”
