March 7, Capitol Theatre
Don’t miss the new production of Australia’s beloved modern classic, The Sapphires.
Staged at Capitol Theatre on Thursday, March 7 at 7.30pm, you are sure to enjoy every moment of this multiple award-winning musical play.
Embarking on a national tour spreading the raw energy, fun and emotion of this story to audiences Australia-wide, this story of 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.
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 Motown 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.
It is recommended for ages seven years plus. It has some adult themes, simulated warfare and a small amount of coarse language.
