The Sapphires is one of Australia’s best-loved stories. Bringing raw energy, fun and emotion, The Sapphires is based on the award winning film and soundtrack.

Four young Yorta Yorta women, who like singing country music, suddenly get the chance to change their tune, their clothes 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 a true story of these young aboriginal women who sing Motown 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.
