This energetic and engaging musical play has a variety of music styles, with 28 songs composed by the esteemed John Rodgers.

It 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 black and white can meet 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 thought provoking, vibrant and above all joyful night of theatre and music, featuring a talented cast of 11, including emerging and established First Nations artists, and a 5 piece live band. It is perfect for audiences seeking entertaining, socially relevant work.

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