saw Matilda earlier in the month. Booked the cheap $55 seats up in balcony 2 but in the middle. Was a pretty good clear view of the stage, although it was a bit hard seeing clearly the action, and missed some special effects. Would probably pay the extra next time to be closer to the action. Also agree with the... More

Every time that I have visited QPAC, I have enjoyed the production. The venue is easy to access, especially with parking underneath, I have found the staff to be very helpful, I once forgot to take my ticket (!) but it was just 'no sweat' to them. The whole area and concept is great.

I went to see The Ladies in Black and Faulty Towers at The Playhouse Theatre and both were superb productions. As always, the theatre is well managed, with comfortable seats and easy access for my mother, who was on crutches. I would advise getting front row seats for disabled access, as there is plenty of room, but otherwise the seating... More

Centrally located QPAC provides a wide variety of live performances from Ballet to Musical Theatre. Many performance times to suit all ages of audiences. QPAC is also close to restaurants and coffee bistro locations for before theatre and after performance dining.

My husband and I recently saw the Fawlty Towers production at QPAC, and although one can never really replace John Cleese in a particular role, the cast was excellent and the show was a hit. Brought back many fun memories. The theatre was lovely as always and staff friendly and helpful.

Great show! Very talented artists, good QPAC facilities and well and truly worth a visit. Only down side the door staff kept dropping her torch at key moments during the performance, which during classical music is very disruptive!
