Throwback Thursday to my first time performing @atqpac (in the Playhouse) back in 2007.... I had a life-changing time playing my second lead role at that point, Billy, the central character in Sideshow Alley, a new Australian musical set in the 1950’s outback, which went on to win a Helpmann Award for Best Original Score. Written by Gary Young & Paul Keelan, the music was breathtaking. As Billy I was gifted with playing opposite the beautiful @silviepaladino as Rita in a dramatic love-triangle of travelling gypsies also involving Alec played by @chrisparker.com.au 🎪🥊 Us boys had 3 months of intensive boxing training prior to rehearsals, and I’ve spent the past 10 years trying to stay half as fit!

It’s fantastic working @atqpac in the middle of such an impressive arts precinct where we can take in the galleries and museum. I visited the Gerhardt Richter exhibition at @qagoma the other day... transported in an instant from the land of Oz to other surreal realms like this land of pyramids.

Myself, @lucydurack our Good Witch and Anthony Warlow our wonderful Wizard jointly celebrated our birthdays on the weekend. I’m honoured to be in such fine birthday company!! Swipe & you’ll see one of the best cast traditions is bringing in b’day cakes for one another... I was lucky enough to have Lucy bring (and decorate🍬) mine and I brought in Anthony’s, all Emerald City greens. Birthdays last a week, right!? 😁🎉🎂🎂🎂

Howdy! It’s your Tin Man @alexrathgeber here. I’m chuffed to be doing a little #takeover of @atqpac for a few days 🤳🏽 Here I am with my sister Olivia after she came to see me clang down @yellowbrickroad last night... you can see by her beaming she loved it... and, by her amazing Tin Woman arm work, where I got my early performance training from! 🤖😁

We were waiting for the perfect time of day to #SnapBrisbane. The Concert Hall foyer with dappled afternoon light is a staff favourite #atQPAC.

For my final post of the takeover I thought I’d share this awesome pic my dad sent me from our opening night curtain call!
He sent this picture with the caption “QPACked” and I laughed for a solid 6 minutes. What a clown. A standing ovation from a packed Lyric Theatre audience- who could ask for anything more?! What an opening week we’ve had- but if you’ll excuse me, BED is calling me!!!! Thank you for coming over the rainbow with me, and I’ll see you at stage door!!! @eliwcooper @yellowbrickroad #wizardofozau #atqpac #qpac #thisisqueensland #itsliveinqueensland #brisbaneanyday #bne #brisbane #brisbanecity #visitbrisbane #visitsouthbank #seeaustralia

Another great thing unique to QPAC that I love when I get to perform here, is the location of the stage door and the way the space is utilised! There are always really interesting (often subliminally educational) tidbits and pics lining the walls... for our @yellowbrickroad trip it’s all about SHOES!!! So if you’re coming down post show to say hello to some of the cast, read up on the history of the shoe in the world of theatre!! You may even learn something new, or just get inspired to go buy some new shoes... #wizardofozau #atqpac #qpac #thisisqueensland #itsliveinqueensland #brisbaneanyday #bne #brisbane #brisbanecity #visitbrisbane #visitsouthbank #seeaustralia

One of the @yellowbrickroad cast’s favourite places to hit while we’re in Brisbane- especially between shows on a Saturday- is @kisstheberry !!! Just a short stroll from QPAC serving up non stop delicious goodness that helps us get through 2 shows!! We’re gonna miss Brisbane so much! But let’s not think about that just yet!  #wizardofozau #atqpac #qpac #thisisqueensland #itsliveinqueensland #brisbaneanyday #bne #brisbane #brisbanecity #visitbrisbane #visitsouthbank #seeaustralia
