HIT Productions presents the Sapphires. A funny heart-warming award-winning musical play, inspired by a true story. The Sapphires is a multiple award-winning musical play and film that is coming to the Princess Theatre stage…. for the first time. Four young women from regional Australia, who like singing country music, suddenly get the chance to change their tune, their clothes 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 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. “The Sapphires is a play about fulfilling dreams and challenging stereotypes. It is a play about hope." Kate Herbert, The Herald Sun “Sheer enjoyment. The Sapphires is a fun show with loads of appeal.” Helen Thomson, The Age Entry Cost Adult $59.5 Concession $49.5 - Concessions available for Pensioners, Seniors, Health Care Card holders and Full Time Students.
