23 May 2022 : 7:30 PM - 23 May 2022 : 10:00 PM
Straight from the big screen to the stage! Written & directed by Tony Briggs. One of Australia’s best loved stories as a multiple award-winning film and play, The Sapphires is coming to the KPAC stage for the first time.
Four young Aboriginal women from regional Australia, who love to sing country music, 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 four Yorta Yorta Women who sing classic soul hits against the backdrop of personal change and massive social upheaval. An energetic, fun and engaging play that
affirms life and the realisation of dreams.
