Written by Australian actor Tony Briggs, The Sapphires continues to be one of the country’s greatest stories ever told. Originally a play which began making the rounds in Melbourne and Sydney in 2004 and 2005 - before being revived in 2010 - The Sapphires became a national sensation with the release of its film adaptation in 2012.

Set in 1968, the story follows four Aboriginal Australian women that form a touring music group named The Sapphires, who, along the way, deal with both personal problems as well as issues regarding their race at a crucial point in time regarding Aboriginal rights. The award-winning story has stood the test of time for more over a decade, and remains to be a fantastic, heartfelt insight into Australia’s colourful history.

This 2019, The Sapphires makes its return under none other than Tony Briggs himself, with an exclusive two-day run at Home of the Arts in Surfers Paradise. Updated for a modern audience but keeping all the important themes of the original production, this sensational story-driven musical production is The Sapphires at its best yet, with a brand new country music score delivered in world-class fashion by talented performers Ngaire Pigram, Matilda Brown, Mindy Kwanten and Lorinda Merrypor.

The Sapphires arrives at Home of the Arts with two performances on March 15 and March 16, and for those looking to relive the incredible story or discover it for the first time, it’s a must-see show taking place just moments away from our Surfers Paradise apartments accommodation!

Situated within minutes from the Gold Coast’s leading venue Home of the Arts, Aristocrat Holiday Apartments offers affordable accommodation for couples, families and groups with a range of fantastic facilities to enjoy onsite. See our budget-friendly options now by clicking here.
