Presented by Christine Harris & HIT Productions

The Sapphires Written & Directed by Tony Briggs

The multi award-winning musical play, inspired by the remarkable true story of writer Tony Briggs mother, returns to the stage for two shows only. 

Set in the heady days of the late 60s a quartet of talented young singers from a remote aboriginal mission are discovered and guided by a kind-hearted, soul-loving manager. 

Wearing sequins and armed only with microphones, they find themselves trying to spread joy in the hell that is the Vietnam War. 

An uplifting Australian classic, full of comedy, heart and romance, together with unforgettable soul music, The Sapphires will stay with you for years to come.
