WHAT'S ON OUTSIDE THE WALLS 2018

There are many opportunities during our 2017-2018 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 and 2018.

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.

Julias Caesar

Tuesday 31 July 8:00pm - Bunjil Place, Narre Warren

Brutus is suspicious. Cassius is conspiring. Caesar’s days are numbered.

Loved by the people, Caesar’s power is growing – which is dangerous if you live in a world driven by ego and idealism.
Those that rise too fast must be dealt with. For the good of the country. For the good of those who wish to be rulers themselves.
Julius Caesar is Shakespeare’s political thriller, a masterpiece of intrigue and treachery. Stand witness to the assassination that leads to a life and death struggle for power in the Republic. Citizens mutiny, Mark Antony schemes, and the fate of Rome hangs in the balance.
Bell Shakespeare’s Associate Director, James Evans, will direct a production that’s seething with rage, leaving audiences breathless at how quickly violence reveals the fragility of democracy.

Starring Kenneth Ransom (Gods of Egypt, Belvoir’s Prize Fighter) as Caesar, and featuring an ensemble cast including Ivan Donato (Richard 3), Emily Havea, Louisa Mignone, Nick Simpson-Deeks and Russell Smith, this production will tour to 27 venues around Australia.
Experience the tension between aspiration and ambition, the triumphal entrances and brutal exits, as it is all laid on the line for Rome.
