Vibrant performing and visual arts scene flourishing
THERE is a thriving arts and cultural scene in Colac and beyond, with a busy programme of drama, dance, comedy, physical theatre and family theatre offered at Colac Otway Performing Arts & Cultural Centre (COPACC).
COPACC, also home to Colac Cinemas, offers a wide range of musical styles in its subscription seasons, community arts programmes and exhibitions.
Just north of Colac is the new Red Rock Regional Theatre & Gallery which is thriving thanks to the support of the dozens of practising visual and performance artists who live in the Shire and beyond.
Colac is also home to a vibrant amateur dramatics and dance scene, with the Colac Players staging two productions annually, and Red Door Dance and Theatre Productions presenting two musicals each year starring a cast of up to 100 performers, all under the age of 25.
There are small private galleries dotted around the Shire and a growing live music scene at cafés, restaurants and wineries.
