Get Involved with Princess & The Hustler

Eclipse are looking for volunteers from the community in the North East to be Beauty Pageant Contestants and Protesters as part of the production of Princess & the Hustler at Live Theatre.

No experience needed.

Open to anybody over 18

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

1) The beauty 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 the beauty pageant promenade as part of the show. Show up in clothes that make you feel beautiful!

2) The boycott: we will be 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.

These are simple walk on parts that do not require extensive preparation, professional experience, singing or remembering lines! Just one rehearsal the night before the opening show to prepare the community members for being onstage.
