Description

Classification

,

Set in 1946, The Sunshine Club is a gloriously energetic, thought-provoking and above all entertaining night of theatre. The Sunshine Club tells the story of Aboriginal soldier Frank Doyle, who returns home to Brisbane after serving in WW2 to find that, while the world may have changed, the same attitudes and prejudices still exist at home. But this only fills Frank with a strong desire to change things for the better by setting up The Sunshine Club, a place where all people are welcome to come together, laugh, romance and dance the night away.

The Sunshine Club is written and directed by proud Noonuccal Nuugi man Wesley Enoch AM, an acclaimed creative force in Australian Theatre. This energetic and engaging musical play has a variety of music styles, with 28 songs composed by the esteemed John Rodgers.

The openness and joy radiating from The Sunshine Club is certain to make your spirits soar.
