The Sapphires come to The Bowery

Summary

The Sapphires is a multiple award-winning musical play and film that is coming to the Bowery Theatre stage for the first time.

It’s one of one of Australia’s best-loved stories and one of the biggest musical shows to play The Bowery.

The show is currently on national tour and will be staged at the Bowery on Thursday 11 July to an intimate audience of 200 people.

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 soul 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.

Writer Tony Briggs will direct his work in a version he promises will be the most intimate telling of the Sapphires story yet!

The Bowery Theatre is proudly owned and operated by Brimbank City Council.
