Glasshouse Port Macquarie & Greater Port Macquarie Focus present
The Sapphires is one of Australia’s best-loved stories. This multiple award-winning musical that inspired the film is coming to the Glasshouse for the first time!
This funny, heart-warming tale was inspired by the true story of four spirited Yorta Yorta women, who were plucked from obscurity by a kind-hearted, soul-loving manager to sing classic soul hits to entertain American troops in Vietnam.
Wearing sequins, armed only with microphones and powerhouse voices, they find themselves trying to spread joy in the hell that is the Vietnam War. Their journey offers them the chance to change their tune, their lives and maybe even find love.
This uplifting Australian classic, full of comedy, heart and romance, together with unbeatable soul music, will stay with you for years to come.
