Project background

In May 2018, the Queensland Government announced it would invest $125 million over four years to deliver a new $150 million theatre on the Playhouse Green site co-located with and operated by QPAC. QPAC will also contribute $25 million towards the project.

 

The New Performing Arts Venue (NPAV) will deliver a minimum 1500 seat theatre to meet existing audience and producer demand and support continued growth of performing arts in Queensland.

 

QPAC schedules over 1300 performances annually and welcomed a record attendance of 1.5 million people in 2017/18.

 

The new theatre offers the potential to host an additional 300,000 visitors each year when it is fully operational.
