THE SUNSHINE CLUB

SWING INTO THE SUNSHINE CLUB WHERE EVERYONE IS WELCOME AND ROMANCES BLOOM

Heralded as a “brilliant new landmark in Australian musicals” (The Australian), 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.

Set in 1946, this joyful and acclaimed musical tells the story of Frank Doyle, an Aboriginal serviceman who has come home from World War II to find that although the wider world may have changed, attitudes back home in Brisbane are just the same. Filled with a defiant energy and ambition for a better life, Frank starts The Sunshine Club, a place where all people are welcome to come together, laugh, romance, and most importantly, dance. Here he dreams of a future where he can dance in step with Rose, the girl next door, the girl of his dreams.

The award-winning The Sunshine Club is a gloriously energetic, thought provoking and above all entertaining night of theatre featuring a talented cast of 11 emerging and established First Nations artists along side a 5 piece live band.

The story is told in the genre of a musical, suiting the dance club theme but giving it another layer of complexity… the song and dance delivery around intertwining love stories makes for a compelling story of humanity, hope and despair. Enoch directs with finesse and sensitivity. Arts Hub

“The openness and joy radiating from The Sunshine Club is certain to make your spirits soar.” Sydney Morning Herald

“An unashamedly feel-good musical.” The Australian
