Queensland Theatre Reveals a Record Breaking 2019 Lineup
Queensland Theatre has unveiled their 2019 season and it’s set to be the most urgent, ambitious and entertaining season yet. After a ripper couple of years as the fastest growing performing arts company in the country, the company is achieving unprecedented levels of success in the form of touring shows as well as creating Queensland exclusives that are sure to be the envy of the rest of the country’s culture vultures.
The winds of change..
Brisbane is like a fine bottle of wine; over time the quality improves, and each sip is greatly appreciated. Our city is continually evolving and maturing, producing breathtaking venues that never cease to amaze us. If it's not an entirely new concept, it's a renovation or re-brand. Let's just say, if Bris were a TV series it would either be Packed to the Rafters or Keeping Up With The Kardashians - wouldn't you agree? No month is the same in this town and we wouldn't have it any other way!
