The Gothic horror story swoops the country in a gripping, critically acclaimed production by Shake & Stir.

When young lawyer Jonathan Harker visits Castle Dracula deep within the Carpathian mountains, he's not expecting the strange hospitality he receives from his mysterious host.  Alone trapped within the castle walls, Jonathan discovers that Dracula wants more than his presence at the dinner table - he might also be the main course.

Leaving Jonathan for dead and the castle behind, Dracula travels to London on a quest for seduction, true love and above all - blood.

Suitable for ages 16+

We’re Going On A Bear Hunt

WE’RE GOING ON A BEAR HUNT is the wonderful story of a family out for walk and on the lookout for a growling bear - they have to march through long swishy grass, wade through thick gloopy mud and even battle a snow storm before entering a big dark cave where maybe they will finally spot the glinty wet eyes of a slobbering, gigantic bear winking at them through the blackness.

This 55 minute mini-musical captures the fun and frolics of a father who is clearly still a child at heart, his three children including a tiny intrepid bear hunter in the making – baby is strapped to dad’s back plus the family dog and of course....a BIG BROWN CUDDLY BEAR!

Suitable for ages 2 - 8

“I was always like, like a magnet with my Dad, like everywhere he went I was right next to him…  He never got rid of me…”

Throughout Australia’s history, an unknown number of Indigenous children have been forcibly removed from their families.  Parents driven mad, grandparents heartbroken, siblings torn apart, language lost, and culture stripped away.

Using testimonials from the Stolen Generations, Noongar man Ian Michael invites you to listen in
on the silenced stories of this country.

Bohemians in the Bush

Bohemians in the Bush

from June 17, 2017 @ 9:00 AM until August 27, 2017 @ 4:00 PM
Gippsland Art Gallery - Sale

The Gippsland encountered by artists in the late nineteenth century was a wild and inhospitable frontierland.

In the age of Impressionism and the rise of a national school of art, Gippsland remained a remote and inaccessible region for most artists.  Those who did make the journey were confronted by obstacles at every turn, at once impeding their pathway and providing awe-inspiring subjects for their art.

Bohemians in the Bush explores the stories and art of late nineteenth and early twentieth century Gippsland, revealing the work of many artists who are comparatively little known today.

Kenneth Jack (1924—2006) captured the quintessential Australia through his paintings, drawings and prints.

Jack was renowned for intricate images of Australian cities, outback towns and vast panoramic views.  Yet another side to Jack is reflected in the works that he kept in his private collection, which reveal the intellectual and artistic challenges that he faced.

Assembled by the artist’s son David, The Kenneth Jack View presents a range of works from the artist’s own collection, many of which are previously unseen, together with key works from the Gippsland Art Gallery’s collection.
