Set in 1946, the joyful and acclaimed musical 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, as Frank sets out to win the heart of Rose, the girl from next door. The Sunshine Club is a gloriously energetic, thought-provoking and, above all, entertaining night of theatre.  

From 7pm, grab a drink from our lounge bar and enjoy into the music of the era with a FREE jazz performance by the Orlando Combo quartet.  

BYO food platters welcome.
