About this Event

Black Community and Student Theater (Black CAST) is proud to present "All the Natalie Portmans" by C.A. Johnson.
Sixteen year old Keyonna and her older brother Samuel live on the brink of eviction while dreaming of a better tomorrow. Too smart, “too gay”, and too lonely to fit in, Keyonna escapes into a world of rom coms, red carpets and all the iconic characters played by her muse, Natalie Portman. But when “all the Natalie Portmans” start talking back to her, Keyonna finally has to face her off-screen drama in this imaginative new play that reminds us to embrace life on the ground while still reaching for the stars.
What is a BLACK OUT Night?
Birthed by award-winning playwright Jeremy O Harris, a BLACK OUT is “the purposeful creation of an environment in which an all-Black-identifying audience can experience and discuss an event in the performing arts, film, athletic, and cultural spaces – free from the white gaze.” With this showing, Black CAST intends to further its goal of creating space for Black community and emphasizing that Black people have agency in the theater both on and off stage. As always, all identities are welcome and encouraged to attend any showing that they may choose. A BLACK OUT Night is only an invitation, not an exclusion.
