BLACKBOX CAFE, BAR AND OUTDOOR STAGE

Blackbox Cafe & Bar opened in early 2021 conceptualised not just as a revenue stream but as a way of giving work to artists, to increase Theatre Works’ visibility in the local area and to develop face-to-face relationships with our neighbours.

Blackbox has become a home for artists to socialise, meet and connect, and our neighbours have enjoyed the interaction with
an operational theatre. Our engagement and profile within our local area has grown exponentially translating to increased donations and ticket sales. We kept open throughout lockdowns greeting St Kildians every morning with good take away coffee and a smile behind our masks.

During Summer, our Acland Street forecourt will be activated even further, transforming into an outdoor stage for up to 60 patrons. Keep an eye out in the program for Mullet Fest and Midsumma Festival shows lighting up the Blackbox stage.
