UK Arts International

Directed by: Wesley Enoch

Large scale

Meet the McCrae sisters – four gorgeous sisters from New South Wales whose biggest dream is to become as famous as their Motown idols. It is 1969, and their Supremes cover band is performing in St Kilda’s Tiki Club, when a talent scout spots the sisters. Soon they are dreaming of fame, fortune and glamorous international careers.

Instead, those Koori divas find themselves in the war zone of Vietnam, entertaining the troops. Based on the true story of his mother’s and aunts’ showbiz careers, Tony Briggs has created a steamy and swinging medley of the highs and lows of family, love, war and the hottest music in the jungle!

This new co-production by Black Swan and Company B Bevoir of the hit musical The Sapphires is directed by Wesley Enoch, whose Stolen and The Cherry Pickers have previously toured in the UK. The show features a live band and classics such as Love is Like a Heatwave, Respect and Higher and Higher.
