From humble beginnings in the 70’s when a Choral Society and Dramatic society worked hard to satisfy members needs, the groups merged in the 90’s to become Goondiwindi Performing Arts Inc , an incorporated body better placed to support the thriving Performing Arts scene.
In the 1980’s the group purchased the old “Guide Hut to give it a physical home. This “Hut” is our rehearsal space, our meeting place and a venue used for teaching performance related skills e.g. a toddler music group uses the Hut as does a primary drama group. In the recent past a singing teacher also taught in the hut.
The group caters for the many and varied interests of its members. These smaller groups regularly merge to produce a combined performance. It may be a locally written piece incorporating musical numbers and dramatic interludes, a play or a musical.
In the choral music area we have our fantastic group Encanto. Some of these groups are selective others are not.
