Have you ever souvenired a poster, stashed a ticket or saved a program from a memorable show? Like so many paper time machines, these things have the power to make a world of past performances, places and people seem suddenly vivid and alive.

Mass-produced theatrical ephemera continues to be collected by theatre goers and theatre makers alike, and QPAC Museum’s ever-expanding collection of posters, programs and printed ephemera is valued in many ways. Beyond mere documentation of performances, it is treasured for the fascinating diversity of social and cultural memories these keepsakes bring to mind.

“Excellent! An unexpected delight. What an incredible collection to share with us!” Lynette and Kevin Goddard, Sydney
“I’m a collector and I love this show!” Karen Ho, Hong Kong
