Testimonials:

Access Arts was culturally ambitious to organise Undercover Artist Festival, the first disability arts festival Queensland has ever experienced. We chose to hold this at Queensland Theatre. Their support to us was superlative. As well as being an artistic success, 95% of people surveyed found the Festival to be better than average, with 79% having an excellent experience and 16% having a good experience. No-one surveyed found the experience to be poor or very poor.  Without the outstanding backing given by Queensland Theatre, this would not have been possible. We are indebted to the Queensland Theatre team.

Queensland Theatre’s Bille Brown Studio provides us with an ideal venue to hold our Annual General Meeting and other organisation-wide events. The location, parking and general facilities on offer are very convenient and access to the beautifully presented foyer and courtyard provides an ambient space for our guests to network. The staff are always friendly, helpful and a pleasure to work with.

We warmly express our sincere thanks to Queensland Theatre and its employees for all their hard work and outstanding contributions towards making our production a success. It was extremely helpful to have their input and guidance throughout the planning of the performance. I know how much time and energy is demanded to make these shows a success and your staff could not have been better. It is great to know when working in a team that you can count on people to go the extra mile if required.
