For the best start to 2020, or the perfect excuse to visit Brisbane this summer, head to South Bank for a world-class live show at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre.

With our Southbank accommodation at The Capitol Apartments, relax within walking distance of QPAC and its unmissable monthly events, where we offer modern Brisbane City apartments for travellers, tourists, couples and families, fully self-contained with everything needed to feel at home in Queensland’s most vibrant city. A mere stone’s throw away, here’s everything that will take place at QPAC South Bank this January:
The Book of Mormon Brisbane
Straight from Broadway and the West End, The Book of Mormon returns to Brisbane in 2020 with an unmissable month-long run at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre. Hailed as one of the funniest musical comedies of the last decade, The Book of Mormon - created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone of South Park - is all set to stun Queensland audiences with a full-scale production that leaves nothing behind.
Featuring all the famous songs - such as “I Believe”, “You and Me (But Mostly Me)” and “Hello!” - an incredible cast and the original Broadway story that follows two mismatched Mormon missionaries in war-torn Uganda, The Book of Mormon is a must-see show for musical lovers and anyone looking to begin 2020 with a smile. For one whole month, The Book of Mormon takes over QPAC with matinee and evening performances starting January 3.
Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus
The most dramatic works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart will be literally taken to new heights in Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus - an explosive stage spectacular coming to QPAC featuring circus, magic, acrobatics and more with Mozart’s most celebrated compositions compiling the soundtrack.
In Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus, witness Australia’s most talented performers perform a variety of gravity-defying feats and magic tricks guaranteed to blow you away, synchronised to the music of Mozart and rounded off with dazzling costumes, lights and stage sets. For circus, magic and classical music fans, this adrenaline-rushing exhibition isn’t to be missed at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre with both morning and matinee performances from January 7 to January 18.
Captivating cabaret and flawless acrobatics fuse together in Circa’s Peepshow, a thrilling production by Circa Contemporary Circus that premiered in Australia in 2018 and has since travelled to Europe in Germany and the UK. Starring seven skilful acrobats performing a variety of aerial feats with a touch of cabaret flair and sophistication, Circa’s Peepshow delivers a whole new experience for fans of both circus and cabaret.
Lasting two hours with interval, this edge-of-your-seat, oddly tantalising Circa production makes its way to Queensland Performing Arts Centre near our Southbank apartments with a string of back-to-back evening performances from January 14 to January 25.
Beatle Boys Twist & Shout
When it comes to Beatles music tributes, few do it better than the Beatle Boys, returning to Brisbane this January with Twist and Shout - an all-embracing Beatles tribute in none other than QPAC’s spectacular Concert Hall.
Live on stage in full Beatles get-up - including the instruments - the Beatle Boys will deliver an unforgettable Beatles experience for Aussie fans of the Fab Four, full to the brim with timeless Beatles hits such as “Hey Jude”, “Yesterday”, “I Want to Hold Your Hand”, “Let It Be”, “Helter Skelter”, “Twist and Shout” and the rest, all of which will be performed with note-perfect authenticity, stellar musicianship and state-of-the-art sound production. For Beatlemania all over again, don’t miss the Beatle Boys at QPAC on January 15.
Penn & Teller Brisbane
Iconic magic duo Penn and Teller are touring Australia for the first time ever this 2020, heading straight from Las Vegas with an all-new show packed with trademark Penn and Teller sleight of hand, vanishing acts and world-class magic tricks that will leave you lost for words. A sell-out name that has performed around the world both on stage and TV, Penn and Teller are a must-see next year in Australia with limited dates that will see them stop in Brisbane.
To take centre-stage in the QPAC Concert Hall, this highly entertaining, internationally acclaimed duo will perform across five exclusive nights in Brisbane from January 22 to January 26.
