There are many opportunities during our 2017 redevelopment project to engage with performances outside the walls of West Gippsland Arts Centre. We have booked some wonderful music concerts into Warragul’s fine acoustic venue, ‘Wesley of Warragul’. We're also taking shows into our smaller communities and their local halls.
This program takes arts and entertainment into your towns and villages, into alternative spaces and even into the venues of our neighbouring Shires. We hope you enjoy the opportunity to get out and experience the fabulous welcome they will be offering as we all go ‘Outside the Walls’ in 2017.
Important: We have a new online ticketing system! If you are an existing customer, when logging in to buy tickets you will need to reset your password (just follow the prompts). Call us on 5624 2456 during business hours if you need help.

Comedy legend Michael Veitch with Simon Oats revive the golden era of 1940’s radio drama – 50 voices + 100 sound effects = 2 very busy actors!
Take a couple of hilariously antiquated radio plays, add two somewhat over-stressed actors and you're ON THE AIR with 'Mystery in the Air!' This is the show that transports audiences back to the style, the fashion and - let's face it - the sheer political incorrectness of the 1940s. Time are tough and It's all down to just our boys - costumes, sound effects, scene changes, music, voices - they'll do the lot. It's a big ask, and occasionally they might even succeed. The results are hilarious!

With a dose of secret formula and a pair of fantastic elastic anti-gravity underpants, Stanley Marvel takes to the skies as the greatest Superhero the world has ever known.
