The Sapphires SOLD OUT

The Sapphires is one of Australia’s best-loved stories. This multiple award- winning musical play, that inspired the film, is coming to the Knox Community Arts Centre stage for the first time.

Four young Aboriginal women from regional Australia, who like singing country music, suddenly get the chance to change their tune and their lives. Wearing sequins and 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 Tony Brigg’s mother – the incredible journey of four Yorta Yorta Women, who sing Motown hits against the backdrop of personal change and massive social upheaval. It is an energetic, fun and engaging play that affirms life and the realisation of dreams.

Image from Mission Songs show

Mission Songs Project

Presented by Jessie Lloyd, Mission Songs Project is performed as a quartet with a range of Indigenous performers from around Australia. Profoundly moving, Mission Songs Project reveals what daily was like for Indigenous Australians on Christian missions and state-run settlements.

Searching for the family songs that were sung around the kitchen table, Jessie Lloyd explores the day to day life on the missions, settlements and reserves through music. From cultural identity to love and loss, these rare songs consist of almost forgotten stories that can now shed light into the history of our Indigenous elders, families and communities.

Mission Songs Project faithfully explores the musical journey of Indigenous Australian music as the Mission Songs Quartet connects the traditional with contemporary, revealing the continuation of cultural practice and song traditions into the 21st Century.

Image of FoRT by Asking from Trouble


Asking for Trouble presents FoRT a circus/physical theatre production, which delves into the art of play and the creation of worlds from everyday objects.

Two strange characters appear hunting for whispers of adventure. In a series of vignettes a couch, table, cushions, sheets and broomsticks transform into rockets, trampolines, cliffs and tents places to explore. Images appear and disappear.

FoRT is full of ridiculous clowning, spectacular acrobatics, poetic visual imagery and celebrates the kind of creative genius that has been known to turn lounge rooms into volcanoes, trees into castles and cardboard boxes into racing cars.

“Conjures up the spirit of kids’ adventure… spectacular acrobatic work… enchanting."
Caitlin Crowley, Chortle

Warning: Performance may contain coarse language, sexual references and material that may offend some patrons. It is recommended for people aged 15 years or older.

“Lovingly lampoons wine snobbery."
