“Great place to see a show”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

The quality of sound & seating are superb at QPAC. On a tour David Gates of the band Bread stopped the show & commented on the quality of the sound in the Lyric theatre. The satff are all very well trained & always on hand to help.

“A great venue for live performance!”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

While just a concrete building from the outside, there have been recent renovations inside - including the Concert Hall, and the stalls int he Lyric Theatre. Parking is convenient, and tickets can be ordered on either the Qtix or QPAC websites (though the QPAC website allows you to select your specific desired seat on a map, whereas the Qtix website will not let you choose specific seats). Credit cards are accepted for food, beverage and programs/merchandise/souvenirs with a minimum purchase amount of $10 (cash only for programs bought on the bottom floor near the staircase, but cards are accepted at the main sale point). Interval drinks can be pre-ordered before the show for collection during the intermission to avoid lining up. There is no fee to enter and look around, and the cafes, bistro and restaurant can be accessed even if you are not attending a show.
