COVID-19 Update | Queensland Theatre

Important 2020 Season Updates

Hello friends,

We are all reshaping our lives and work to get through the next few months together. We working step by step in line with the government guidelines to manage the year at QT. We will be in touch regularly but for the moment we would like to update you on our decisions for Triple X, Othello, FIFTY!, and the 2020 Queensland Premier’s Drama Award Finalist Play Readings. The details for each are below.

All these decisions are hard. This period of uncertainty is having an immense impact upon the theatre and live performance industry and will continue to do so for some time. Thank you for all your support. We are deeply moved by the number of patrons who have offered their ticket value as a tax-deductible donation. We know that the arts will continue to be essential in keeping us together as a community and we are working to create ways to connect you to artists safely and digitally while we cannot come together at the theatre. Watch this space for new ideas!

Thank you for your understanding and please stay safe,

Lee and Amanda and the QT team 

More Information:

TRIPLE X – Cancelled
As of March 17, all performances of TRIPLE X have been cancelled. Our hard-working team are currently in the process of contacting all ticket holders to make arrangements regarding their ticket options. Please check your inbox for a specific correspondence about this process. As our box office is currently managing an unprecedented number of enquiries, we greatly appreciate your patience at this time.

OTHELLO – Postponed
Our upcoming season of OTHELLO will be postponed. It is such a special production and we are really hoping to be able to bring it to you later in the year. For now, all tickets purchased will be held until new season dates and times can be confirmed with the many cast, crew and creatives working on bringing this play to life. We will then contact you directly to confirm your attendance or other ticket options.  

FIFTY! – Postponed and new dates announced
It’s our party and we’ll cry if we want to... but there’s no need for tears just yet. Our FIFTY! performances are postponed and we have already confirmed new dates.

Our anniversary celebrations are being moved to a matinee and evening performance on Thursday 5 November and our Gala Event performance will be held on the evening of Friday 6 November. Existing tickets will be transferred to these new dates, with options available for those unable to attend the new times. We will be in direct contact with current ticket holders shortly to confirm your preferred ticketing option, or if you don't already have tickets, now is the perfect time to join the party. We look forward to looking back on all this Company has achieved in telling 50 Years of Stories! At some point we are going to need a party don’t you think?    

QPDA 2020 Finalist Play Readings – Public event cancelled
Unfortunately, our 2020 QPDA Finalist Play Readings will now be closed to the public. Our ticketing team will be processing refunds for all tickets purchased. We thank our patrons for your patience and understanding as we undertake this process. Our judging panel will still be present for the closed readings and we look forward to soon being able to announce the winning play.
