Former Stawell resident Lisa Dallinger will return to her hometown to "bring the arts back" to her roots.
Ms Dallinger will perform with a fellow artist Jennifer Monk in a theatre show and host a workshop on June 1-2.
The pair are passionate about bringing the arts and tips they have learnt in the industry back to regional Victoria.
"Jen grew up in regional Victoria too, so it's great to be able to team up with a like minded person on this tour," Ms Dallinger said.
"We're both really excited for people to be able to come and see us perform. This is the first time I have performed in Stawell.
"I'm excited for people to come and see everything I talk about and working towards. It's nice to finally be able to showcase what I do."
Ms Dallinger and Ms Monk will be performing a show called To Lonely With Love.
"The story line is base on real letters Jen has written to people in prison," she said.
"It's largely taken from the letters - it's about the dying art of letter writing and how letters can bring people out of their loneliness to connect.
"In a digital world, are we losing that ability? I think the themes are quite fitting in today's world."
In a show that could appeal to all, Ms Dallinger encouraged both young and old people to attend.
"It could be quite nostalgic for the older generation, they would remember a time when the only form of communication was via letter writing," she said.
"For the younger people it might be interesting - some may have never written a letter before.
"I think sometimes we could be missing the joy of opening up a letter that was sent and posted just for you."
Ms Dallinger grew up in Stawell, attending primary school in the town and moved onto Marion College for her secondary studies.
"I was into drama and productions. I did callisthenics for more than 10 years in Stawell," she said.
"I was pretty keen to pursue performing arts as a career so I had a gap year off and then studied acting in Ballarat.
"I moved to Melbourne after uni and working in the independent sector ever since.
"It's a tough industry. I have an agent but really you need to produce your own work these days - there's not a whole lot of opportunity around."
After discovering the group Girls Act Good, Ms Dallinger has done many pieces of work with the all female collective group.
"We create a lot of our own work in the industry and we are made up of artists, writers, performers, directors, producers and many more," she said.
"I met Jennifer through the group as she is the founder of Girls Act Good.
"The show we are bringing to regional areas of Victoria, isn't under the Girls Act Good label - but that's how I met Jen."
Ms Dallinger furthered her studies but still stayed in the industry.
"I studied teaching so I am a qualified drama-english teacher," she said.
"I've also done some post grad studies in voice. I do some freelance coaching in a number different areas."
Ms Dallinger said she was excited to work with Stawell Performing Arts Council again, hosting a workshop the day after the show.
"I have done some acting and coaching workshops with some of the members over the years," she said.
"SPACi are letting us use their space and we're giving a bit of a workshop on Sunday, June 2.
"It's a great opportunity for anyone to come along. I will be sharing what I know and encourage everyone to pursue their passions, what ever that may be."
