Tony Gould Gallery at Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) is presenting Dramatic Imaginations Exhibition which features sketches, notes, set models, costume designs, finished costumes and production photographs from the QPAC Museum collection, as well as private collections. This provides the perfect opportunity to gain an insight into the imaginative processes that take place backstage in several major theatre productions.

The Dramatic Imaginations Exhibition showcases the incredible imaginations of Australian theatre makers, especially the award winning productions of The Red Tree, When Time Stops, A Christmas Carol, and Ladies In Black.

I found it particularly interesting to learn about the process of turning a script and ideas into concrete reality. The room is filled with elaborate costumes which are great to see up close, so that every detail cannot be missed.

The exhibition shows live footage of The Red Tree as well as set layouts, and the actual wig used in the production. One corner of the gallery is filled with a boat and the copper chair used in the production of When Time Stops.

While the walls are filled with production photographs and the stories behind the making of each of the sets. Basically, anyone interested in theatre production will find the Dramatic Imaginations exhibition a fascinating place to spend a few hours.
