HIT Productions presents
The Sapphires is a multiple award winning musical play and film that is coming to COPACC 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.
Based on the hit Australian film of the same name, The Sapphires is an energetic, fun and engaging play that affirms life and the realisation of dreams.
