GAFFA (Grovedale Arts Festival For All) is an evening that showcases the work of Performing Arts and Visual Arts students. Students perform live music, dance and dramatic acts as well as presenting many short films and displays by Media and Visual Arts students. The evening is presented using professional lighting and sound equipment as well as professional video editing and recording, which students learn to operate and manipulate.
This event is a very unique opportunity as it not only gives students a professional platform on which to perform but also inspires and facilitates the training of those students interested in the “behind the scenes” area of production and performance.
GAFFA is held in Term 3 each year in the College Gymnasium. Tickets will be available at the door or from the Administration Office.
Each year the college presents a Musical. Past productions have included Peter Pan, Lucky, In Your Dreams, Back to The 80’s and The Three Musketeers.
