Presented as part of the Connecting Through Stories series.

Set in 1946, the joyful and acclaimed musical The Sunshine Club, tells the story of Aboriginal soldier Frank Doyle, who is just returning 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 as Frank sets out to win the heart of Rose, the girl from next door.

Based on a true story, this is a gloriously energetic, thought provoking and above all entertaining night of theatre.

Written and Directed by Wesley Enoch. Music by John Rodgers.
