“Energetic, passionate, heart wrenching, uplifting, hilarious and engaging.” – Australian Stage
The Sapphires is a multiple award-winning musical play, and film that starred Jessica Mauboy, that is coming to the Araluen stage for one night only.
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, 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 four Yorta Yorta Women, who sing classic 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.
