The Sapphires

9 May at 8.00pm - Theatre Season 2019

A production by Christine Haris and Hit Productions

Written and Directed by Tony Briggs

A much-loved Australian musical drama that is energetic, engaging and affirms life and the realisation of dreams.

Four young Aboriginal women, suddenly get the chance to change their lives. Wearing sequins and armed with microphones, they find themselves trying to spread joy
in the hell that is the Vietnam War.

The Sapphires is a funny and heart-warming tale inspired by the true story of four Yorta Yorta Women, who sing Motown hits against the backdrop of personal change and major social upheaval.

“Energetic, passionate, heart wrenching, uplifting, hilarious and engaging.”
