About Us

The Griffith Regional Association of the Performing Arts is a not-for-profit organisation aiming to showcase a range of theatre productions for the local area. For over 10 years GRAPA has enriched the lives of many people looking to take part in or experience community theatre. GRAPA is run by a volunteer committee of local people, each with their own passions for the arts.

2020 Season

Are you based in Griffith or it’s surrounding towns and interested in getting more involved in the arts? Come and join GRAPA and be part of our 2020 season. Our Shakespeare Under the Stars production has become a feature of the spring calendar with shows held outdoors in the beautiful Bidgee Studio Gardens every November. 

27/3/2020: During the coronavirus crisis, our usual activities have been put on hold. 

In August 2020, Griffith Pioneer Park Museum and GRAPA collaborated to deliver Vintage Voices, a radio play series based on Griffith’s history. These radio plays are available to listen to online, head to the Vintage Voices page for more information.
