The Sapphires @ Margaret River Heart
09/08/2019 @ 7:30 pm$40
The Sapphires is one of Australia’s best-loved stories. Winning multiple awards as a play, film and soundtrack album there was one challenge left and that was to undertake a national tour of Australia. Bringing the raw energy, fun and emotion of this story directly to venues like Margaret River and across the nation.
Friday 9 August 7.30pm
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 uniforms of 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 writer Tony Brigg’s mother. It tells of the incredible journey of a singing group of four Yorta Yorta Women, who sing Motown 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
Performed in the new Margaret River HEART Auditorium. Bar opens at 6.30pm and the show commences at 7.30pm.
Tickets: $40 Adult, $35 Concession, $32 Arts Hub Members, $25 Youth, $100 Family (2A+2Y)
