George Arts Theatre


George Arts Theatre in George was built in 1905 as the first girls' school. In 1968 it was bought by the George Society of Arts and converted into a theatre, the first production held in April 1969.

Social evenings are often held on a regular basis and consist of play readings, music and dance excerpts, quizzes, story telling and many other theatre related items. A number of full length productions are held throughout the year and every other December the Society’s pantomime is one of the town’s most popular holiday attractions. The Arts Theatre is also a popular venue for many productions given by both national and international artists

MUSIEKBEDIENING: In ons gemeente word daar in elke erediens gepoog om deur middel van ’n wye verskeidenheid verskillende musiekstyle ’n ruimte te skep waar enige iemand kan tuis voel. Al die middele tot ons beskikking (ons unieke 1879 meganiese Hill-pyporrel, klavier en ander instrumente) word gebruik om ’n atmosfeer te skep, waar Woord- en musiekbediening op só wyse geïntegreer is, dat dit vir elkeen wat die erediens bywoon, ’n sielsverrykende ervaring sal wees. Die liturgie vir elke erediens word dus met groot sorg vooraf beplan deur die Musiekdirekteur en betrokke Bedienaar van die Woord, sodat seker gemaak word dat alle aspekte van belang (die boodskap van die dag, die kerklike jaar, spesiale biddae en so meer) aangespreek word.

Direk vóór elke erediens word ’n gepasde atmosfeer geskep, deur meestal voorbereidende gemeentesang en soms alleenlik instrumentale musiek, af te wissel. Vrywillige sangers en instrumentaliste oefen gereeld saam om te verseker dat die aanbieding hiervan, wat afwisselend in tradisionele of ligter styl is, smaakvol en van goeie kwaliteit is.

Ons klank, multimedia-aanbieding en kameras word ook deur bekwame vrywilligers behartig, sodat elke erediens vir almal ’n aangename ervaring kan wees en ons inwoners van Tuiniqua Aftree-oord ook kan inskakel.

Vir verdere navrae kan die musiekdirekteur, Elsabe Barkhuizen, by die kerkkantoor gekontak word by 044 874 2036, of per e-pos : musiek@caw.org.za
