The Sapphires is a multi-award winning musical play based on the remarkable true story of writer Tony Briggs' mother. This uplifting Australian classic - full of comedy, heart and romance, together with unbeatable soul music - will stay with you for years to come.

One of Australia's best-loved stories, The Sapphires has won multiple awards as a play, film and soundtrack album.  For this special national tour, writer Tony Briggs will direct his work in a version he promises will be the most intimate telling of the story yet.

Set in the late 1960s against the backdrop of personal change and massive social upheaval, The Sapphires is the incredible journey of four sassy young Yorta Yorta women.  Plucked from obscurity, they are given the opportunity to change their tune and their lives.  Wearing sequins and armed only with microphones and their powerhouse voices, the talented singers find themselves trying to spread joy in the hell that is the Vietnam War.   

Joyful and vibrant, The Sapphires explores the power of love and family bonds, challenges stereotypes and affirms life and the realisation of dreams. 

 
"Energetic, passionate, heart wrenching, uplifting, hilarious and engaging" - The Australian 

"Sheer enjoyment.  The Sapphires is a fun show with loads of appeal" - The Age
