Sunshine Super Girl
WORLD PREMIERE! EXCLUSIVE THEATRE LAUNCH!
A young girl hits a ball against the tin wall with a frying pan. This is where it all began for Evonne Goolagong, the Wiradjuri girl who conquered the world.
Griffith Regional Theatre and Performing Lines present the World Premiere of Sunshine Super Girl – the Evonne Goolagong Story – written and directed by Yorta Yorta/Gunnakurnai playwright Andrea James - a brand new theatre work celebrating the life and achievements of Australia’s best loved sporting legend.
A proud Wiradjuri woman, Evonne was born in Griffith and we are thrilled to launch her moving and often funny story here - where it all began. The quintessentially Australian story of a girl from the bush who dared to dream, and overcame incredible odds to become World Number 1!
Join us for this unique cultural event – with a Red Carpet Gala VIP premiere, Wiradjuri Welcome Ceremony and Cultural Festival – to celebrate the life of Griffith’s most famous living treasure.
