Join us for an unforgettable evening as the Black Box Theatre proudly hosts a live fundraiser, featuring the high-spirited Okaihau College Band, “SMILES”.

As a Charitable organization, we rely on community donations, fundraising, and sponsorship to continue sharing our love for the performing arts. With costs on the rise, this unique event not only showcases the immense talent within our community but also provides an opportunity for you to contribute directly to our mission.
