The Sapphires is a multiple award-winning musical play coming to the Glen Street Theatre stage for the first time. Full of raw energy, comedy and romance, together with unbeatable soul music, this production will stay with you for years to come.
Set in the heady days of the late ’60s, 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 and armed only with microphones, they find themselves trying to spread joy in the hell that is the Vietnam War.
The Sapphires is a funny, heart-warming tale inspired by the true story of four Yorta Yorta women, who sing classic soul hits against the backdrop of personal change and massive social upheaval. It is an energetic, fun, and engaging play that affirms life and the realisation of dreams.
