GACCI presents musical performances and theatrical shows across the year. We provide support for local artists, thespians and musicians to further their chosen interest in whatever way we can. We enjoy the support through membership of approximately 70 to 80 members and new members are always welcome.

The GACCI players were formed in 2001 and continue to perform two shows a year, usually a comedy and a pantomime, they have a regular group of amateur theatre enthusiasts of all ages, that fluctuate in number according to the performance requirements.
Gloucester Gallery was created under the umbrella of GACCI and has grown into a well loved and valuable community exhibition space, providing a quality arena for local artists to exhibit their work and for visiting artists and traveling exhibitions to enhance the arts experience for locals and visitors in our town.
Workshops are regularly presented in theatre and in diverse art mediums, for children, youth and adults.
Over the years GACCI has presented a whole host of variety of entertainment in Gloucester including Flix in the Stix, Skits in the Stix and the annual photography competition and exhibition ‘Pix from the Stix’, which still continues and is held in July each year with a Prize pool of $1500.
Many other wonderful and quality shows have been presented, some annually, including ‘Big Nite In’ the talent event for the youth in our town and several stage acts by acclaimed performing arts group Critical Stages.
