6 shows coming to Brisbane that you simply must get tickets for…

We’ve rounded up the best of what’s coming to Brisbane and trust us, if the popularity of these shows in other cities is anything to go by, you’ll want to pencil them in your diaries, snap up those front row seats and book in that pre- or post-show dinner quick smart.

We’re so lucky to have state-of-the-art performing arts facilities right in the heart of our city. But it’s often the case that after successful runs in other southern cities, big ticket productions won’t make the trek up to our sunshine state and yes, we’re a little mad about it! 

However, the Brisbane theatre scene is currently booming and QPAC and Queensland Theatre are promising to raise the curtain on some pretty sensational musicals and stage productions in 2024 (and beyond), and we could not be more ecstatic! 

DISNEY’S BEAUTY & THE BEAST | 15 FEBRUARY – 9 JUNE | QPAC

QPAC is proudly inviting us to ‘be their guest’ and witness Disney’s enchanting new production of Beauty & the Beast and we are more than happy to accept the invitation! Boasting all the spectacle and grandeur audiences know and love from the movie and the original production, this reimagined version takes things a step further with cutting edge technology, a live orchestra, unbelievable costumes and, of course, big Broadway-style dance numbers! From the minds behind Frozen, Mary Poppins, The Lion King and Aladdin, this much loved classic will undoubtedly fill the hearts of a whole new generation. Grab your tickets here

ELVIS: A MUSICAL REVOLUTION | 22 JUNE – 21 JULY | HOTA

Get your blue suede shoes ready! This brand-new musical, authorised by Elvis Presley Enterprises themselves, celebrates the extraordinary life of award winning, cultural icon Elvis Presley and it’s coming to Queensland half way through this year. Yes we know the Gold Coast isn’t technically Brisbane, but this show features over 40 of the king of rock’n’roll’s hit songs including ‘Jailhouse Rock’, ‘Hound Dog’, ‘Burning Love’, ‘Earth Angel’, and so much more – how could we not include it in the roundup? With an all Australian cast and dazzling choreography, it’s unsurprising that tickets are going faster than golden records so be sure to get yours here before they go. 

TINA: THE TINA TURNER MUSICAL | FROM 29 JUNE | QPAC

Jukebox musicals are coming in hot at the moment. First a musical made with the hits written by Elvis, now a musical based on the life of one of Australia’s personal rock’n’roll favourites of the 80s and 90s, Tina Turner! Featuring more than 20 of her iconic songs, including ‘Simply the Best’, ‘River Deep – Mountain High’ and ‘Proud Mary’, this smash-hit musical is a heart-pumping musical spectacular. It’ll make you laugh, it’ll make you cry and it’ll definitely have you on your feet dancing. Find out more and get your tickets here.

WICKED | FROM 12 SEPTEMBER | QPAC

Rejoicify! Wicked, the musical sensation and prequel to the Wizard of Oz that has defied gravity globally for over 20 years, is back in Australia. The story follows two young women; one born with emerald-green skin, who is smart, fiery, and possesses an extraordinary talent, and the other, a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular. Their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships… until the world decides to call one ‘good’, and the other one ‘wicked’. We are simply thrillified that we finally get to see this spell-binding story play out on-stage at the Lyric Theatre in QPAC from September this year. Tickets are now on sale here

ROUND THE TWIST THE MUSICAL | 12 NOVEMBER – 1 DECEMBER | QUEENSLAND THEATRE

Have you ever, ever felt so excited? We are ecstatic that an Australian musical, based on the home-grown TV show that raised a generation, is making its debut over at Queensland Theatre. Based on the seminal stories of much-loved children’s author Paul Jennings, Tony Twist and his kids Pete, Linda and Bronson are taking the stage to embark on a magical adventure to protect their home from the greedy Gribble family. Whether you’re new to the Twists (have you been living under a rock?), or a diehard fan like us, this big-hearted family-friendly show is absolutely a must-see.

SIX THE MUSICAL | JANUARY 2025

The global pop musical phenomenon and TONY Award winning production, SIX, follows the story of Henry VIII’s six wives as they remix history, telling each of their stories in their own sassy, influential, pop diva way. Pair this with some shimmer and show-stopping musical performances, it’s the most entertaining history lesson you will ever experience and it’s coming back to QPAC in January 2025. If you’re counting down the days till its return, be sure to join the waitlist for tickets here

THE BONUS ‘UNCONFIRMED, YET HOPEFUL’ ROUNDUP…

A musical under careful watch for a Brisbane season announcement is & JULIET. The brand new show is said to be a jaw-dropping spectacle filled with Max Martin songs that flip the script on Shakespeare, questioning ‘what if Romeo’s ending, was Juliet’s beginning?’ – intriguing right? Pair this laugh-out-loud, heart-warming story with a playlist that includes Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Since U Been Gone’, Katy Perry’s ‘Roar’, Britney Spears’ ‘…Baby One More Time’, Backstreet Boys’ ‘Larger Than Life’, Justin Timberlake’s ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’ and much more! & JULIET creates a mind-blowing concert-like atmosphere that critics have said, “…will blow your mind”. So safe to say we’re also hoping this one makes a pit-stop at QPAC on its way back from Perth and Sydney. 

Watch this space, we hope!
