RPAC TEMPORARILY CLOSED UNTIL THE END OF APRIL
As a result of COVID-19 and the restrictions around non-essential gathering Redland Performing Arts Centre (RPAC) is temporarily closed.
At this stage, RPAC will be closed from Tuesday 17 March until Thursday 30 April, and all performances during this time period will be cancelled or postponed.
Redland City Council is closely monitoring the evolving situation in regard to COVID-19. The date for RPAC's re-opening will be continually reviewed, with the safety of our audience, employees and artists our highest priority.
The list of performances cancelled or postponed during RPAC's closed period are as follows:
- Charmaine Wilson
- The Sapphires
- Gravity & Other Myths – Backbone
- The Australian Tenors – Spirit of Australia Tour
- Redland Sinfonia – Passion Play
- #FirstWorldWhiteGirls - Spirit Animal
- Prada's Priscillas
- Flipside Circus School Holiday Workshops
- The Wiggles - Fun and Games Tour!
- Beautiful Noise - The Life & the Music of Neil Diamond
- Three Legends in Concert
- The One Day of the Year
- The Owl and the Pussycat
- Orava Quartet.
In addition to the above performances, a number of events in May and June have also been cancelled or postponed. The current performances affected are:
- The World of Musicals
- Cloudland the Musical
The RPAC Box Office will contact any patrons that are currently booked into these shows to offer a rescheduled date and/or a credit/refund as appropriate. As you can imagine, it will take some time to work out rescheduled dates (if possible) for performances and contact all patrons that will be impacted by these postponements or cancellations. We therefore ask for your patience while we work our way through the list of patrons booked into shows. We will be starting from this week's shows and working through these shows in date order, so it may take some time to get to the shows later in April.
Performances from May onwards will be reviewed regularly and updates will be given on this page and on the RPAC Facebook page (/RedlandPerformingArtsCentre) with regard to when RPAC will re-open and if any additional performances will be impacted.
While we have been open over the past few weeks the safety of our audience, employees and artists has been our highest priority. RPAC has taken additional measures to ensure the venue remains a safe and enjoyable environment, including regular cleaning of all surfaces in the Concert Hall and the availability of hand sanitiser in several places in the Concert Hall Foyer. There have been no confirmed or suspected cases of COVID-19 at our venue and our decision to close is purely precautionary.
In line with current recommendations, people attending any events are encouraged to wash their hands regularly and avoid attending any events if they have flu like symptoms, have returned from overseas travel in the last 14 days, been in contact with anyone who is suspected of having the virus, or have been given advice from their doctor to avoid public gatherings.
