Unleash your creativity at RPAC’s free open day


Redland Performing Arts Centre will celebrate its 11th birthday this weekend with an Open Day that is set to provide plenty of fun for the whole family.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said the RPAC Open Day would include puppet making, fibre weaving and circus skills lessons, as well as the chance to take a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on back stage.

“RPAC turns 11 years old this month and what better way to celebrate than with an open invitation to the community to enjoy some fun artistic activities and performances by some of RPAC’s in-residence groups,” Cr Williams said.

“This will also be a great opportunity for residents to take a back stage tour of the areas not typically open to the public.

“From the control room to the rehearsal spaces, RPAC’s Creative Art’s Manager Zane Trow will show you a different side of RPAC and give you a glimpse into its history – you’ll even get the chance to feel what it’s like to walk across the RPAC stage.”

As well as the creative family activities on offer throughout the day, Redland Sinfonia will share some of their favourite orchestral pieces during their open rehearsal and Redland City Choir will lift your spirits with their choral recital and sing-along.

Members from each of these groups will also be available during the day to chat about their plans for the coming year.

No bookings are required.
