It has been a pleasure going here for the ballet season. I'm not an ordinary ballet goer though I really enjoyed this season which I bought as a gift for my wife. The staff are excellent and helpful. I'm booking for next year

I love going to the QPAC for any show. Online booking is straightforward with a streamlined process and easy to identify seating location map. Upon arrival, staff are friendly and provide wonderful assistance and direction. For this visit being reviewed I introduced my 8yo grand daughter to the ballet where we saw The Nutcracker. The whole experience provided by QPAC... More

We recently saw "Fawlty Towers" at QPAC and have seen quite a number of other shows in the past. I can't say FT was a favourite for me, however the rest of the audience and my husband definitely appreciated. Whatever the show itself, the staging was excellently done. In a general review of QPAC - the shows they put on... More

We went to go see Deadly 60 Pole to Pole:Live and it was amazing everything the tidiness to the seats and the merch. We saw the 1pm show and Matilda was going in at the same time and there was no staff that we running round like Headless chickens it was all calm apart from the young children.

We saw two shows at QPAC - Swing on This, four jazz singers with a terrific band; and Fawlty Towers in the Playhouse. The theatres are well appointed, staff are very helpful, seats in both spaces were comfortable.

Plenty of easy low cost parking options, public transport opposite, no stress in no stress out. This is a very well planned venue. We saw Matilda The Musical at the 2000 seat Lyric Theatre, quick service at the bar for pre show drinks, great seating in the theatre, and the show and production was world class.
