Dates: 18-July-2019 - 19-July-2019
The Sapphires is one of Australia’s best-loved stories. This multiple award- winning musical play, that inspired the film, is coming to The Potato Shed stage for the first time. Four young Aboriginal women from regional Australia, who like singing country music, suddenly get the chance to change their tune and their lives. 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 a funny, heart-warming tale inspired by the true story of Tony Brigg’s mother – the incredible journey of four Yorta Yorta 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.
