QPAC’s New Stage Door Unveiled

Take a stroll through the QPAC Tunnel and check out this contemporary entryway triumph

1 min read

Stage Doors are a hive of activity, where performers, technical teams and staff enter and leave the theatre.

On recent visits, you may have noticed the construction hoarding covering our previous Stage Door inside the QPAC Pedestrian Tunnel.

Now revealed, our brand new Stage Door is a sleek, spacious lobby that will welcome visitors to QPAC with open arms (and plenty of comfortable seating).

The pleasing reception area, reminiscent of a luxury hotel lobby, offers service with a smile, though the only checking-in we require of you is via the Check In Qld app.

Drawing the eye up to its high-ceilinged wings, the new Stage Door space is completed by two spectacular works by Quandamooka artist Elissa Jane Carmichael. The blue painting, Can we see the same rock pools you saw?, evokes sea tides washing into rock pools; and the red painting, Do we see gum leaves growing on the same branches?, harks to the tall gum trees of Carmichael's homeland.

We look forward to our new Stage Door continuing its tradition of welcoming visitors, cast, crew and staff for many years to come and reflecting our heart for hospitality and community.
