Sunshine Super Girl – Whyalla

Concert or Performance

27 Aug 2022 Once Only Event

A young girl hits a ball against the tin wall of her family’s home. This is where it all began for Evonne Goolagong. Hers is a quintessentially Blak Australian story about a girl from the bush who dared to dream, and with the support of an outback farming town, rose to become the number one tennis player in the world and a household name by the age of 19.

Evonne Goolagong’s heart-warming story is a celebration of spirit and passion over adversity, and a tribute to a woman whose sporting prowess continues to inspire a nation, giving hope to thousands of young girls across the country.

This landmark new Australian work is written and directed by Yorta Yorta / Gunaikurnai theatremaker Andrea James (Yanagai! Yanagai!).

“Sunshine Super Girl transforms Sydney Town Hall into a tennis court, with traverse seating banks like bleachers. We sit down and are immediately ready for a match. What better mindset for a play about one of our greatest athletes, Evonne Goolagong Cawley?” – Sydney Morning Herald, Cassie Tongue Jan 2021
