QPAC’s Cremorne Theatre reborn after $2.3 million refurbishment

QPAC’s Cremorne Theatre reborn after $2.3 million refurbishment
August 9, 2017

The Queensland Performing Arts Centre’s (QPAC) Cremorne Theatre, located in Brisbane’s South Bank precinct, has reopened following a three-month, $2.3 million upgrade.

Speaking about the reopened theatre, Queensland Premier and Minister for the Arts Annastacia Palaszczuk stated “the Cremorne is one of the state’s most-loved venues for intimate concerts, live-theatre and cabaret and the refurbishments are a fantastic investment in QPAC, our cultural precinct and our performing arts industry.

“The upgrades to the Cremorne provide performers and patrons with an enhanced theatre experience with the venue now providing greater flexibility to host an expanded range of productions.”

The refurbishment works include include a variable height and depth stage, production and architectural dimmers and lighting systems, improved acoustics and a new retractable seating system which provides improved sight lines to the stage.

In addition, the theatre staging can be transformed and adapted for different productions, such as cabaret performances and theatre-in-the-round.

Premier Palaszczuk added “this is the first time the Cremorne Theatre has had a makeover in its 32-year history and the improvements, together with other planned work to further enhance accessibility to the theatre, will ensure it remains an enjoyable and well-utilised performance space for many years to come.”

The Cremorne Theatre is QPAC's most adaptable venue, being able to convert from traditional proscenium to theatre-in-the-round, concert, cabaret, cinema or flat floor modes, depending on the needs of the production. With a maximum seating capacity of 312, audiences and performers can get closer to each other, making the Cremorne ideal for creative productions, cabaret, intimate concerts, theatre, launches and conversations and lectures.
