Join us courtside for so much more than just a match.
By Andrea James

Through a combination of intimate storytelling, stylised choreographic movement, and stunning projections, this landmark Australian work tells the heart-warming story of Wiradjuri tennis legend Evonne Goolagong Cawley.

A young girl hits a ball against the tin wall of her family’s home with a fruit box bat. This is where it all began for Evonne. A girl from the bush who dared to dream, and with the unlikely support of an outback farming town, rose to become the No. 1 tennis player in the world, and a household name by the age of 19.

This acclaimed production chronicles the emotional, physical and spiritual journey of Goolagong. In this unique experience, the Wollongong Town Hall will be transformed into a tennis court with the audience seated courtside to evoke the action and magic of Wimbledon. With its distinctive Australian sensibility and humour, Sunshine Super Girl is a joyful celebration of spirit and passion triumphing over adversity, and a loving tribute to a woman whose sporting prowess continues to inspire the nation.
