The Sapphires is a multi-award winning musical play and film that is coming to Townsville’s Entertainment and Convention Centre for the first time.

Four young Aboriginal women from regional Australia, who like signing 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.
