 Eclipse Theatre will be visiting NST City in March

and are looking for members of the local *black community to join their cast on stage

and help us celebrate what it means to be black and beautiful.

(* To Eclipse, Black includes anyone who is marginalised for their race or ethnicity)


There will be two opportunities for community members to join the cast on stage:

The pageant: as a celebration of black beauty in all its forms, we want to welcome black women (and those who identify as women (womxn) to walk as a parade of black women as part of the show.

The boycott: we’re looking for a number of people to take part as protesters at various points throughout the show, this opportunity is open to members outside of the black community also.
