One of Australia’s best-loved stories, The Sapphires is a multiple award-winning musical play with a rocking soundtrack your students will love.

It tells of the incredible journey of a group of four Yorta Yorta women, who sing classic soul hits against the backdrop of personal change and massive social upheaval. Wearing sequins and armed only with microphones, they find themselves trying to spread joy in the hell that is the Vietnam War. The Sapphires is an energetic, fun and engaging production based on a heart-warming true story with a powerful message for young people.

This contemporary Australian Drama gives insight into Aboriginal experiences and culture and has strong curriculum links, ticking all the boxes for education and entertainment. Your students will leave the theatre with smiles on their faces and joy in their hearts.
