The Sapphires is a multiple award-winning musical play and film coming live to the BREC stage for the first time!

The Sapphires is a funny, heart-warming tale. It tells the incredible journey of four young women from regional Australia who love singing country music. They get the chance to change their tune, their clothes and their lives when they begin singing Motown soul hits.

Wearing uniforms of sequins, armed only with microphones they find themselves trying to spread joy in the hell that is the Vietnam War. Set against the backdrop of personal change and massive social upheaval, inspired by the true story of writer Tony Brigg’s mother, The Sapphires is an energetic, fun and engaging play that affirms life and the realisation of dreams.

“I hope the audience will feel a fresh sense of connection to a story that has already successfully infiltrated the psyche of the Australian theatre and movie-going public and get a sense of joy and understanding of who Aboriginal people are and walk away from ‘The Sapphires’ with a smile on their faces” Tony Briggs.
