Concerts and musical productions have always been part of the life of Two Wells. A brass band performed late in the 19th century. Piano teachers were always in demand and elocution and singing a priority. 

During World War Two, concerts were arranged to raise funds for the war effort.

Two Wells Melodrama Group holds one theatre production each year, and in 2011 held a one-night "Comedy Night." Founded by Les "Nig" and Bet Williams, the Group's first performance was over two nights in April 1982, at the old Two Wells Institute. Since 1985 all productions have been held in the Two Wells Community Centre. Most productions since then have been locally produced and performers and production crew are also mainly local residents from the Two Wells and Lewiston areas. The Group received Mallala Council's Community Event of the Year award during Australia Day celebrations in 2002; and in November 2009 received a SA Great Regional Award in the Arts Category for Barossa region.
