2019 Program Launch - 8 February 2019

Get a taste of the cabaret, comedy, circus and more that is coming to the Glenelg Shire in 2019 at the upcoming ArtsGlenelg Season Launch!

The ArtsGlenelg Season Launch will take place on Friday 8 February from 6pm at the Portland Arts Centre, offering a pop-up bar, nibbles and the first show of the season; Dance Hall.

The launch would provide event goers a ‘sneak-peak’ of what to expect on stage in 2019.
This year we will be presenting a brilliant array of performances to suit all tastes, with plenty of excellent family shows, comedy, cabaret, circus, classical and contemporary music, including the increasingly popular ‘Small Night In’ events.

Launch attendees will be offered a free champagne upon arrival and there will be a pop up bar and nibbles available after the launch.

The launch would be followed by the first show of the season - cabaret extravaganza Dance Hall.
Dance Hall is both outrageous and unforgettable, showcasing world-famous dances and songs from around the globe in spectacular fashion against the backdrop of velvet drapes and glowing lanterns..

The show, which is targeted to adults, will transform the Portland Arts Centre into an intoxicating dance dive, offering line dances, Ethiopian shimmy, a spot of Bollywood and even a touch of ABBA, so get ready to bust a move under the twinkling lights!

With last year’s show a sell-out, book your tickets now to avoid disappointment!

RSVPs to the Arts Glenelg season launch are essential and can be made by contacting the Portland Arts Centre on 5522 2263 or be emailing
