RPAC has live performances to suit everyone
If you live in Brisbane you'll know all about QPAC: Queensland Performing Arts Centre. Well, now it's time for you to discover RPAC: Redland Performing Arts Centre.

I hadn't been to the theatre for a few years when I enjoyed an afternoon of theatre fun in Cleveland, on the south-east side of Brisbane, with my friends. The anticipation and excitement of a live performance set the tone for the comedy we watched and after leaving on a high I wondered why I didn't do this more often.

I. Just agree, I love RPAC too. Parking is free....unlike in the city, it's safe walking the streets. The theatre size is small and intimate. The seats all have good views.

Only issue I have is there isn't anywhere to go for coffee afterwards. Cleveland shuts down very early even on weekends. Going for a drink to the local pub isnt inviting as it has virtually no atmosphere. Quite a shame as it could extend the night.
