Australia's beloved modern classic returns by popular demand!
The Sapphires is one of Australia’s best-loved stories. This multiple award- winning musical play, that inspired the film, is now embarking on a national tour spreading the raw energy, fun and emotion of this story to audiences Australia wide.
Four young Aboriginal women from regional Australia, who like singing country music, suddenly get the chance to change their tune and their lives. Wearing uniforms of sequins, armed only with microphones they find themselves trying to spread joy in the hell that is the Vietnam War.
"This was a winner. A good production, a heart-warming storyline and a great score." - SYDNEY ARTS GUIDE
The Sapphires is a funny, heart-warming tale inspired by the true story of writer Tony Brigg’s mother. Tony will direct his play in a version he promises will be the most intimate telling of the story yet – the incredible journey of a singing group of four Yorta Yorta Women, who sing classic soul hits against the backdrop of personal change and massive social upheaval.
It is energetic, fun and engaging theatre that affirms life and the realisation of dreams.
Recommended age: 12 yrs+ Some adult themes, simulated warfare and a small amount of course language.
