Trilogy presents the Wet Hot Beauties in


A metamorphosis of mermaids!  A war cry of water ballerinas! A flotilla of femininity!  Trilogy present the Wet Hot Beauties in Sea Change,  a splash-tacular water ballet championing grrl power.  

This February, as part of the Auckland Fringe and Pride Festivals, the award-winning Wet Hot Beauties make a spectacular splash at the Parnell Baths in their latest professionally choreographed water ballet offering, Sea Change. 

More than 80 water ballerinas create a dazzling aquatic kaleidoscope, built on an emotional narrative based on profound transformation.  Drawing from deeply personal experiences, Sea Change explores through dance the roles women play in today’s society.  The work challenges the demands and expectations placed on modern women, as well as celebrates their resilience, courage and power.  Set to a pumping sound track of legendary divas, Sea Change aims to entertain, inspire and uplift, and illustrates how community and belonging can set us all free. 

Presented by Trilogy, Sea Change is more than a show ­– it's a movement!  A siren's call to others to shine bright like a diamond.  A powerful war cry to join the Wet Hot Beauties on the crusade to create joy one dive bomb at a time.  

Wet Hot Beauties are an all inclusive, body positive water ballet company with a tradition of producing community-focused, feel-good water ballets both in the pool and at the beach.  Wet Hot Beauties have produced two previous Fringe shows, Sirens and Swan Song, both of which were sold out, critically acclaimed, crowd favourites.
