AFTER an extraordinarily successful year for Queensland Theatre in 2017, it's time to think about this new year and book your tickets while you can. It's going to be a bumper year.

In 2017, you could see Queensland Theatre shows in 2000 seat theatres in Sydney and Melbourne, in a festival in London, or in an outdoor venue on Thursday Island, in the Torres Strait. Queensland Theatre played to audiences from Cairns to Perth to Albury Wodonga and last year reached more people outside Brisbane than the Sydney Theatre Company reached outside Sydney in 2016. 

Season 2018 is set to follow, with eight extraordinary shows, six new Australian stories and four world premieres headlining. The year features an extraordinary line-up of stars including William McInnes, Danielle Cormack, Tim Finn, Osamah Sami, Matthew Backer, Jimi Bani, Liz Buchanan, Leon Cain, Jason Klarwein, Andrea Moor, Rhys Muldoon, Veronica Neave, Christen O'Leary, Hugh Parker, Bryan Probets, David Williamson and more.
