Curtains rise for another successful season at RPAC


Performances spanning contemporary music, dance, drama, family theatre, classical music and cabaret are just some of the highlights of the new offerings at Redland Performing Arts Centre (RPAC).

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said RPAC’s Season 2021: Act 2 program guide was now available, with more than 30 different shows on offer at RPAC until the end of August.

“This latest program follows the successful reboot of RPAC’s arts calendar with Act 1 which saw crowds flooding back after the disruptions of 2020,” Cr Williams said.

“The arts are alive and thriving on Redlands Coast.

“Redland City Council is delighted with the level of support given by our community to RPAC, as our premier performing arts program venue.

“I’m sure the diverse selection of performances in Act 2 of this season’s program will appeal to all tastes and interests.”

RPAC’s reputation as one of the best performance venues in the south-east Queensland continues to attract major touring productions with both Opera Queensland and Queensland Ballet gracing the stage this season.

Trailblazing women will take RPAC centre stage in Rovers (8 July), featuring intrepid performers Roxanne McDonald and Barbara Lowing in an entertaining and heartfelt stage adventure.

RPAC will also celebrate legendary artists Simon & Garfunkel, Cat Stevens, Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks, Aretha Franklin and the Bee Gees in a series of tribute concerts this season.

Division 2 Councillor Peter Mitchell said young imaginations would soon be ignited by a selection of family-friendly productions.

Wilbur the Optical Whale (5 August) is a beautiful, inclusive performance that will inspire your children to embrace difference,” he said.

“The ever popular Flipside Circus school holiday workshops (8-9 July) will also return to entertain all ages.”

Councillor Williams said it was shaping up to be a bumper year for RPAC as the venue continued to deliver outstanding experiences for Redlands Coast residents, visitors and guests.

“Along with the leading national and regional touring productions, the best of Redlands Coast will be celebrated with Stage Sessions making a welcome return to showcase the talent of local performers,” she said.
