The West Gippsland Arts Centre (WGAC) has been recognised by the RACV as one of the top eight regional theatres in Victoria.
Located in Warragul, Baw Baw Shire’s largest population centre, the WGACis the region’s leading performing arts and cultural space. The RACV, in a recent survey of top regional theatres, named the Arts Centre at number seven alongside world class Victorian theatres including Her Majesty’s Ballarat, Ulumbarra Theatre in Bendigo and the Geelong Arts Centre.
The Arts Centre underwent a major $13.4 million redevelopment project in 2017 that saw the facility refurbished and expanded to better serve the needs of the local creative community.
Following a two-year COVID-19 impacted hiatus, the spotlight has shined bright on the Arts Centre as it celebrates its return to live entertainment playing host to a range of hit shows and community focused events.
Recent hit shows and sell outs including Human Nature, Kate Miller-Heidke, the Wiggles and the return of the highly regarded West Gippsland Dance Festival, show that the community is keener than ever to experience live performances in a state-of-the-art facility.
The curtain may be closing on the year, but the momentum continues to build at the Arts Centre, as it gears up to host sell-out crowds at the upcoming Guy Sebastian T.R.U.T.H. On The East Side Tour and Bjorn Again-Mamma Mia in November.
The excitement doesn’t end there. The Arts Centre team are hard at work locking in a diverse line-up of shows and events for the year ahead with no intermission expected anytime soon!
