This autumn at QPAC is a rich offering of Queensland premieres and returning favourites across a wide range of arts filled with laughs, wonder and elegance.
What better way to kick off the season than by entering a “world of pure imagination” with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory opening in March. Whether on page or screen, Roald Dahl’s delicious classic has charmed young and old for years and its leap to the stage will be sure to delight. Following Charlie is another familiar classic, this time featuring the unlikeliest of heroes, as Shrek The Musical brings its wry twist on the fairy tale to QPAC for the first time.
QPAC is delighted to continue our partnership with the World Science Festival Brisbane, with engaging speakers and big ideas in March.
Carl Barron headlines a fantastic season of comedy that also features Tom Gleeson and a QPAC Presents season of the Umbilical Brothers. In April, we welcome superstar magicians Penn and Teller for their inimitable blend of magic and comedy.
In a world premiere co-presented by QPAC, Australia’s favourite blue heeler TV family hits the stage for the first time with Bluey's Big Play – The Stage Show in May.
And, in a milestone year for a number of the state’s arts companies, Queensland Ballet will celebrate its 60th anniversary with a glittering gala followed by Dracula.
The arts have the power to delight, to entertain, and even to expand your horizons. And in the richness and diversity of QPAC’s autumn offering, I’m sure audiences of all ages will find something to connect with.
We pay our respects to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ancestors of this land, their spirits and their legacy. The foundations laid by these ancestors - our First Nations Peoples - gives strength, inspiration and courage to current and future generations, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, towards creating a better Queensland.
